HowTo - 7.0 change the Updater Service loop time

Article ID: 52088 - Last Review: January 15, 2014


The Updater Service checks with the server for updates every 10 minutes by default.  In some cases you may want to modify the frequency with which it does so.  We have added a manual configuration to override this default. 


1. Open the GlobalAppSettingsEditor located in [InstallDir]\CCM\Services\ConfigService\.
2. Fill in the following details:

  • Application:  Leave this empty
  • Section Group:  enter prairieFyre.Installations.Properties.Settings
  • Name:  enter ReleaseInterval
  • Value:  input a value in the form of HH:MM:SS (Where HH = hours, MM = minutes, SS = seconds)
  • Description:  Add a note on why this is being changed.  NOTE: You must enter something in this field in order to save.

3. Click Save.  Note that saving these changes can take 30 to 60 seconds.  Wait until you get a confirmation screen to close the GlobalAppSettingsEditor.

This will override the value for all client and remote machines.
