SummaryStores the SuperSTAR catalogue settings for all SXV4s.
Default Location

C:\ProgramData\STR\SuperCROSS\Catalogue

[DBPath]

This section stores the list of datasets and tables in the Local Access section of the Catalogue, in the form:

<dataset_id>=<path>

The Local Access section can include datasets in the following format:

  • SXV4
  • SDMX
  • SuperSTAR Archive File Format (.sar)

For example:

[DBPath]
RetailBanking=C:\ProgramData\STR\SuperCROSS\Databases\Retail Banking
peopledemo=C:\ProgramData\STR\SuperCROSS\Databases\people

The details of the local access datasets are also stored in an XML file (C:\ProgramData\STR\SuperCROSS\CatalogLocal.xml). A local access dataset will not appear in the Catalogue unless it is specified in both ssii.ini and CatalogLocal.xml.

[SuperAdminServers]

This section contains the name and address of the SuperADMIN server. This entry is automatically created when a SuperADMIN connection is made in SuperCROSS.

For example:

[SuperAdminServers]
SuperSTAR Database Server=inet:localhost:9230

[CORBA]

This section stores CORBA naming service settings.

EntryDescription
DBISServerThe SuperWEB1 server address.
NamingServiceNaming service location in the format inet:<host>:<port>

For example:

[CORBA]
DBISServer=DBIS_server
NamingService=inet:super_server:9000

[CompatibilityCheck]

By default, if the version of SuperCROSS that you are using does not match the version of SuperSERVER that you are connecting to, SuperCROSS will display a compatibility warning:

If you wish to disable this warning message, you can do so by adding the following section to the ssii.ini file, setting the value of CompatibilityCheck to 0:

[CompatibilityCheck]
CompatibilityCheck=0

To enable the warning message again, either remove this section or set the value of CompatibilityCheck to 1.

[MandatoryFields]

This section can be used to force users to include certain fields in a table.

SuperCROSS will not allow a cross tabulation unless the table includes all the mandatory fields:

To specify mandatory fields, use the following format:

<dataset_id>=<list of mandatory fields enclosed in angle brackets>

The following example specifies that:

  • For the Retail Banking dataset (ID: bank) the Gender and Marital Status fields are required.
  • For the people dataset, the Occupation field is required.
[MandatoryFields]
bank=<Gender><Marital Status>
people=<Occupation>

[SingleSignOn]

Use this section to enable single sign on with Kerberos, by adding the following lines:

[SingleSignOn]
SSODLL=SSPI_Kerberos.dll

You must also configure an appropriate authentication service. See Single Sign On with Kerberos for more information.

[DefaultDBPath]

The default path for datasets that do not have a [DBPath] set. This directory is used to store configuration files related to SXV4s loaded through SuperSERVER, including:

For example:

[DefaultDBPath]
DefaultDBPath=E:\SXV4s

This setting is not included in the configuration file by default. You can either add it to the file directly, or it can be configured in SuperCROSS under Edit > Options > Configuration > SXV4 and Local Access > SXV4 Default DBPath.
