Manually Editing Configuration Files


Can I make manual edits to my configuration files? Will these be reflected in the CLI and GUI?


If you need to make manual changes to the configuration files, make the changes within the configuration store. These changes will be reflected in the CLI and GUI and can be deployed using the deploy-config command or by clicking on Deploy button in the GUI. But if you make changes directly in the instance, the Administration Console will show up a warning stating that there are manual modifications to the configuration files and you need to either overwrite these changes with the configuration in the configuration store or else get these changes back into the configuration store overwriting the existing configuration changes.

Note –

Always use the Administration Console or the wadm CLI to edit the settings.
