Settings XML Filename

Supported in:

Kiosk Pro Plus and Enterprise

Configure a specific filename that will be used to initiate a remote settings update through the Remote Management Server interface.

Default Value: settings.xml

To update the app’s settings through the Remote Management Server, you’ll first need to create an .xml file with the preferred app settings (either manually using a template or automatically by exporting settings from a configured device).

Once you have that file, upload it through the Site File Manager in the RMS interface and set up a content update including that file. More information on setting up content updates is available here.

During a content update, the app will check to see if any files downloaded match the filename configured in this setting. If it matches, the settings defined in the file will be applied and an event log confirming the update will be posted.

Using Multiple XML files

You can use multiple XML files in this setting by separating the filenames with a comma (for example: "texas.xml,store3.xml"). This is helpful if you need one configuration for multiple kiosks, and a different configuration for a specific kiosk. The XML files will be applied in the order they are listed.
