"Settings" Parameter file


All the basic settings (“Settings” Menu in the program) are stored in the parameter file “settings.json”. A superior description of how to use the parameter file is described under “Introduction > Overview (program version 2)” respectively “Introduction > Overview (program version 1)”.

During installation, the “settings” parameter file is saved at the following location:

%ProgramData%\ELIAS GmbH\infra-convert\settings.json

If another parameter file is to be loaded when starting the program, this can be specified in the startup parameter file (see “Configuration and Import > Settings”).

Important If the parameter file is faulty, this can lead to a program crash. Please only change designated parameters (). Please do not delete parameters marked with and do not change values assigned to them.


Administrator tools

Export file with default values

You can export a complete “settings.json” with default settings from the infra CONVERT user interface in administrator mode. (Available from program version 2.2.3)
Siehe User Manual > Settings > Setup > Administration > “Export configuration files” group.


Set-up

The settings are written in fields with the structure shown here.

For older program versions applies:

"Culture": {
  "Name": "Culture",
  "Value": "de",
  "DefaultValue": "de",
  "ValueType": "System.Globalization.CultureInfo, mscorlib, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089",
  "IsTempSetting": false
},
Parameter Type Value/Content
Name String Name of the setting; always includes the field name.
Value Value of the setting
DefaultValue Factory-set value
ValueType String Internal parameters, including data type and program library to be used.
IsTempSetting Boolean Internal parameter.
