You can configure the additional advanced settings for the Barco CMS plugin 4.2 using the AdvancedSettings.xml file located in the installation directory of the Barco CMS plugin, for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\Security Center Plugins\Barco CMS.

You must run the plugin at least once to have access to the AdvancedSettings.xml file.
IMPORTANT: After upgrading to Barco CMS 4.2, all previous configuration made in the AdvancedSettings.xml file is lost. All advanced settings are reverted to the default values of version 4.2, and must be set again. Some of these settings are now only configurable from Config Tool, and are not listed in the following table.

Refer to Configuring advanced settings in the Barco CMS plugin to configure these migrated settings.

The following table lists the options that you can configure, their descriptions, and the default and recommended values.
