Connect Settings - General

The General Settings option in the RapidIdentity Connect Module provides administrators with an interface to customize server settings for the Connect server. This is accessed through Connect > Settings > General.


The settings are grouped into five sections; the menu's screenshot has been separated by section for layout purposes.

Thread Pool

Scheduler Thread Pool Size dictates how many concurrent jobs may run on any Connect server in the cluster at any given time.

Asynchronous Action Set Thread Pool Size dictates how many concurrent asynchronous Action Sets may run on any Connect server in that cluster at any given time.

HTTP Client

These settings define the default connection and socket timeout in milliseconds. The connection timeout value is the time allowed to form the TCP connection, and the socket timeout value is the timeout for responses to individual requests. The default values are 30000 ms (30 seconds) for the default connection and 600000 ms (10 minutes) for the socket timeout. The upper limit for each of these values is 214,783,647 milliseconds or about 59.6 hours. It is possible that a response could take longer than 10 minutes, and in those cases, it is advisable to adjust the timeout value on a case by case basis rather than setting the timeout value to zero (an infinite timeout).

Log Retention

Log Retention defines the number of days to retain the job and run logs. Administrators can choose to always retain or define a specific number of days; acceptable values are between 1 and 36500.


For emails sent in correlation to jobs, this setting defines the size in MB over which RapidIdentity will compress or zip attached log files before sending. The default for this field is 1.


This section provides administrators the option to allow weak cryptographic algorithms. Specific algorithms can be defined using the options parameter with the openRemoteCLI() and openRemoteCLIWithCert() actions. An algorithm specified by either of these actions override the selection of this particular System setting.
