  • In the Cache tab you define the basic settings for connecting to the Cache Invalidation Service (RabbitMQ) from applications and OutSystems services.

    Cache Invalidation Service section

    This section contains configuration parameters for the cache invalidation service.

    Configuration Description Default value
    Host Hostname or IP address of the Cache Invalidation Service.
    Note: To make it easier to add a front-end server later, OutSystems doesn't recommend using localhost as the hostname.
    Port Port used by applications and OutSystems services to communicate with the cache invalidation service. 5672
    Virtual Host Name of RabbitMQ virtual host.
    Virtual hosts allow you to reuse the service to other purposes having a separation from OutSystems logic.
    Username User of the cache invalidation service used by the OutSystems platform. admin
    Password Password of the user of the cache invalidation service used by the platform.
    Note: Currently this password can't contain special characters (for example, ?, &, ^, ", ', *, (, )).
    Enable TLS When checked, enables the usage of secure connections between applications and the cache invalidation service Unchecked

    Create/Upgrade Service button

    To install or upgrade the cache invalidation service, click Create/Upgrade Service.

    This button installs RabbitMQ and Erlang, the components used by the OutSystems platform to implement the cache invalidation service, using the configurations supplied in the Cache Invalidation Service section.

    If these components were already installed by the OutSystems platform, the Configuration Tool updates their configuration according to the supplied values.

    Test Connection button

    To verify that it's possible to connect to the cache invalidation service with the supplied configuration, click Test Connection.
