30.7 Reference information: metadata synchronization configuration parameters

The process which performs metadata synchronization is called Metadata Sync Task. This task performs a series of steps before syncing of metadata:

Once the Metadata Sync Task has run at the scheduled time, the task can retry (if any of the steps fail) based on the configuration of the following parameters defined in dhis.conf file:

Parameter Default value





Each retry will be made after the time (in millisecond) as specified. If the steps still fail even after all the retries, then the scheduler stops its execution and then a mail will be sent to the configured user (if any). If no values are specified then the default values will be used.

metadata.sync.retry = 5

metadata.sync.retry.time.frequency.millisec = 10000
