Data cache configuration

Data caching is used to cache data retrieved by the IBM® Web Content Manager application from external sources using connect tags or by requests made through URLs.

You define and manage data cache options in the WCM WCMConfigService service using the WebSphere® Integrated Solutions Console.

Specify the following properties for data cache options:

Used when no cache is specified in a request for data. Possible values are true or false. If true, the data will be stored in the site cache.
The expiry date/time for items added to a cache (site or session) if the expiry date/time is not specified in the request.
Determines whether to cache data by default or not. Possible values are true or false.
