Live Datamart Client API Listener Configuration


This article provides a reference for writing a Live Datamart Client API Listener configuration file.

The Live Datamart client API listener configuration defines port numbers and secure communication indicators. It is separate from the base StreamBase engine configuration and can therefore be managed separately without having to recreate an application archive and redeploy the application whenever (for example) a port number changes.

Required Header Lines

Each configuration file must contain the following header lines, typically found at the beginning of each file:


Specifies an arbitrary, case-sensitive string to name this configuration, which must be unique among other files with the same type, if any. Configuration files can refer to each other by this name. Select a name that reminds you of this configuration's type and purpose. For example:

name = "my-ldm-api-settings"

Specifies an arbitrary version number that you can use to keep track of file versions for this configuration type in your development project. The maintenance of version numbers is under user control; StreamBase does not compare versions when loading configuration files during the fragment launch process. The version number is a string value, and can contain any combination of characters and numbers. For example:

version = "1.0.0"

This essential setting specifies the unique HOCON configuration type described on this page.

type = "com.tibco.ep.ldm.configuration.ldmclientapilistener"

The three header lines taken together constitute a unique signature for each HOCON file in a project's configurations folder. Each project's configurations folder can contain only one file with the same signature.

The top-level configuration object defines the configuration envelope the same way for all HOCON file types.


On a line below the header element lines, enter the word configuration followed by an open brace. The configuration element is a sibling of the name, version, and type elements, and serves to define the configuration envelope around this type's objects as described on this page. The file must end with the matching close brace.

configuration = {

HOCON Elements Explained

Below shows the configuration's HOCON elements, its name-values, usage, and syntax example, where applicable.


Describes Live Datamart client API listener configuration settings including the following dependent elements.


If you want to manually restrict this object to be associated with specific engines, do so here. Each entry can be a specific engine name or a regular expression that can apply to more than one engine. This name-value pair is optional and has no default value. If not present, the configuration uses a default engine association based on its location in a fragment or application archive, or in a node deploy configuration.

For example:

associatedWithEngines = [ "javaengine", "otherengine[0-9]" ]

Int. TCP port for the LiveView client API to listen on. This name-value pair is optional and its default value is 10080. A zero value means that the server will find a random port to listen on. As a TCP port number, its range is between 0 and 65535.

For example:

portNumber = 10080

Authentication realm associated with this listener, indicating that user authentication is to be performed for requests handled by this listener. This realm name is specified in the file.

This name-value pair is optional and has no default value. When you provide this name-value pair, LiveView server authentication is enabled.

For example:

authenticationRealmName = "my-realm"

Name of a secure communication server profile to use when configuring secure communication for a listener. The profile must be defined in the secureCommunicationProfileName property in a separate configuration file of type

This name-value pair is optional and has no default value. If not present, the listener will not use secure connections with its clients.

For example:

secureCommunicationProfileName = "my-secure-communication-client-profile"

HOCON Configuration File Sample

The following shows an example of the com.tibco.ep.ldm.configuration.ldmclientapilistener type.

name = "clientApiListener"
version = "1.0.0"
type = "com.tibco.ep.ldm.configuration.ldmclientapilistener"
configuration = {
  ClientAPIListener = {
    portNumber = 10443    
    authenticationRealmName = "authRealm"
    secureCommunicationProfileName = "my-secure-communication-client-profile"
    secureCommunicationProfileName = "clientprofile"
