What Does "Test" Mean in many Config Files?

Equipment

Polycom Trio 8800 w/ Visual+

Ploycom Trio 8800 w/ VisualPro

 

Software Versions

Trios and Visual+ - 5.9.0.11421

Updater Signature - Release

VisualPro - 6.1.9.500016

 

I found this config file on this forum for helping me remove the camera view from the idel screen, and I noticed it has the word "test" in the config file. The file as it is works! I tried removing "test", and kept everything else, but that config file won't work then.

 

What is the purpose of the word "test" in some of these config files?  Here is what the file looks like, and I bolded the word "test" below. Thanks!

 

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<!-- Removal of Settings Feature from Homescreen -->
<!-- video.localCameraView.idleState On (1) or Off (0) Standard 1-->
<!-- video.localCameraView.userControl "Persistent" or "PerSession" or "Hidden", default "Persistent" -->
<!-- If the config is set to Hidden or PerSession then we use the video.localCameraView.callState and video.localCameraView.idleState to dictate the control when we transfer in or out of a call though user can still change the LCV state but it will be reverted to the config when the call transition occurs. -->
<changes>
<test video.localCameraView.idleState="0"
video.localCameraView.userControl="PerSession" />
</changes>

Hello @Kevin_A ,

 

Welcome back to the Poly Community.


I suggest you check something like this >here<

 

When creating these example files, as most of them are done by myself, I am just being lazy and use that method to start Element with something meaningful.

 

If you want to understand this more please utilize any search engine. In order to create your own XML file in the correct manner, you could utilize XML Notepad.


Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
