Section: data loading

Property Value Description
default.csvSource.parser.threads 16 ./src/test/resources/data-samples Directory path to the data files ${}/data Directory path to the alerts data files
csvSource.subdirectory.dataset /data Directory containing the CSV files
csvSource.subdirectory.dataset.whatif /whatif Directory containing the What-If CSV files
csvSource.subdirectory.dataset.stage /stage Directory containing the Stage CSV files
csvSource.polling.delay 10000 Time (in milliseconds) a Real-Time listener waits between querying file structure for updates 2018-09-28 Cob date data folder to load at runtime
default.multiple.regulation.separator , Multiple regulation or file separator
scope.force-unambiguous-level-paths false Boolean flag to enable if we want to force Scopes to be Unambiguous on Multi-Level Hierarchies. Please see scope.force-unambiguous-level-paths for more.
scope.autofill-unambiguous-level-paths true Boolean flag to enable if we want to autofill Scopes to its Unambiguous Multi-Level values. Please see scope.autofill-unambiguous-level-paths for more.
scope.isUsingExplicitMatching true Flag to enable explicit scope matching. If true then a Limit will only be visible in the business cube at the exact location the Limit’s Scope is defined on and no lower. This does not affect the location evaluations and breaches are checked at.


If the properties or csvSource.subdirectory.dataset are not set correctly, OR the data directories don’t exist in Atoti Limits, an empty folder structure will be generated. An as_of_date.csv file, containing the current day’s date, will be generated automatically, allowing you to access the UI.

Section: Atoti Limits connecting to other solution

The following properties can be set in the file. The main way of setting these properties is connecting Atoti Limits to a server, such as FRTB, using the auto-configuration.

Before connecting to a server or configuring these properties, they will be null during the execution of Atoti Limits until a connection is made. In addition, if the maps already contain entries at startup, those values will be used by Atoti Limits. If the content server properties are set, they won’t be changed when connecting to a new server.

Property Value Description `{‘MRA’: ‘http://localhost:10010/risk-activepivot/activeviam/pivot/rest/v8/cube’, ‘FRTB’: ‘http://localhost:8080/frtb-starter/activeviam/pivot/rest/v8/cube’} Map of the Solution name to http url Map of the Solution name to its server version: { < server name >: < version >, … }
Example: { 'FRTB': '6.0.0' }


Auto-configured, null by default. {'FRTB': 'configuration/kpis'} Atoti Server configuration kpi path to get the kpi permissions which are used during startup to delete the stale kpis. The path might be different from AP release to release. Different servers might be run on the different AP versions. {'MRA': 'YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=', 'FRTB': 'YWRtaW46YWRtaW4='} Map of the Solution name to authentication token {'MRA': 'AsOfDate@Date@Dates', 'FRTB': 'AsOfDate@Date@Dates'} Map of the Solution name to AsOfDate cube location
content.server.url http://localhost:8080/frtb-starter/activeviam/content/rest/v7 URL of the content server to be used with Limits (and Limit’s UI). It is usually exposed at the server’s /content endpoint. < server name > e.g. FRTB The name of the content server to which Limits is connecting.
content.server.auth YWRtaW46YWRtaW4= The Base64 Encoded Authentication to use to authenticate requests to the Content Server. The Authentication should be for admin access and the passcode should be in the format USER_NAME:PASSWORD . For example, we would generate the Authentication for a user “admin” with password “admin” as the string “admin:admin” which would get encoded to “YWRtaW46YW1kaW4=”.
level-path.url {'FRTB': 'http://localhost:8080/frtb-starter/services/rest/v1/levelPath/'} Map of the Solution name to Level Path REST endpoint URL

Section: Content server

Property Value Description ROLE_USER User entitlement capable of creating calculated members in the content server ROLE_USER User entitlement capable of creating KPIs in the content server 3600 The time to live (in seconds) of the entitlement cache
contentServer.remote.api.uri http://localhost:9093/content URI of the content server used by the RemoteContentServiceConfig
contentServer.prefix limits Content server prefix
contentServer.factory-reset false DEVELOPMENT ONLY: Resets the content server’s contents to those provided in the Solution’s release
contentServer.factory-reset.filename limits-content-server.json Filename of the release version of the content server contents
contentServer.factory-reset.folder-name limits-content-server The folder containing the release version of the content server contents.
contentServer.bookmarks.default-owners ROLE_ADMIN The default owners for any bookmark
contentServer.bookmarks.default-readers ROLE_USER The default readers for any bookmark

Section: Cloud properties


Values for Google properties are empty in properties file because they come from a specific JSON file you need to import.

Property Value Description

aws.root_directory data-samples Name of the data folder within the AWS S3 bucket
aws.region us-east-1 AWS region
azure.container limits Name of the Azure container

google.container Name of the Google container
google.root_directory Name of the root data folder within the GCP container
