    Plugin Server Configuration - Is it possible to comment-out or temporarily disable a plugin?

    Thad Esser

      We're new to ARS 9.1.04 (coming from 8.1) and I was curious if there was a way to comment out a plugin using the Plugin Server Configuration form?  On our 8.1 server, I would have just surrounded the relevant lines in the pluginsvr_config.xml file with comment tags like so:

       

      <!-- <plugin>

            <name>ARSYS.ALRT.TWITTER</name>

            <pathelement type="location">C:/Program Files/ARSystem/pluginsvr/aralerttwitter81_build001.jar</pathelement>

            <classname>com.bmc.arsys.plugins.alert.twitter.TwitterAlertDeliveryPlugin</classname>

      </plugin> -->

       

      I did that on our 9.1.04 server, and after opening the Plugin Server Configuration form, it appears the system deleted those lines out of the file altogether.  In hind-sight that's not surprising.  But I'm curious if there's a way to disable/comment out the plugin, without having it deleted?

       

      Thanks,

      Thad

      P.S.  Yeah, the workaround would to be to copy them off to another text file and then just delete them.
