Ontology Properties Configuration

The ontology.properties file contains a number of properties that need to be modified with the variables that are specific to your environment. The Ontology cell needs these properties to deploy correctly and to set required parameters.

The properties within the ontology.properties file have been grouped together based on their function. For instance, the group of PM Cell Properties addresses the communication between the Ontology and PM Cell. The following list shows the groups we will be editing during this step of the installation.

Group 1:   Metadata schema name (Location of hivedata)

Group 2:   Project Management Cell Properties

Group 3:   File Repository Cell Properties

Group 4:   Data Repository Cell Properties

Group 5:   Ontology Service Account Properties

Group 6:   Metadata Delimiter Property
