Fields configuration

These Liberator configuration items determine how Liberator handles the fields contained in objects (records).

For information about how you define fields within records in a DataSource application such as Liberator, see Field definition format.

Contents:

ignore-unknown-fields

ignore-unknown-fields when TRUE, suppresses the generation of error log messages when Liberator encounters unknown fields in a record it's received. (A field is unknown if it's not defined in Liberator's fields.conf file.) .

Syntax:

ignore-unknown-fields
or
ignore-unknown-fields TRUE

Type: boolean

Default value: FALSE (Liberator logs an error when it encounters a field that it doesn't recognise.)

requested-fields-only

requested-fields-only when TRUE, ensures that Liberator only sends the client the record fields that were explicitly requested by the client at the time it subscribed to a record's subject.

In the default configuration that's supplied with Liberators for deployment in the Caplin Deployment Framework, requested-fields-only is set to TRUE by default.

Syntax:

requested-fields-only
or
requested-fields-only TRUE

Type: boolean

Default value: FALSE (Liberator sends the client all updated fields relating to a subscribed record.)
