This parameter is used with early-binding security. It sets the amount of time a given list of keys for a user may remain cached without being looked up from the repository, thus avoiding slowing the search interface down unnecessarily.

The value may be set to zero to disable caching of security information, though this is not recommended for high performance search services.

Setting the key

Set this configuration key in the search package or data source configuration.

Use the configuration key editor to add or edit the security.earlybinding.user-to-key-mapper.cache-seconds key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid Integer value.

Default value



Allow security information to be cached for ten minutes before it is retrieved from the repository again.
