Dynatrace stores Security Gateway configuration settings in
config.properties. Upon each upgrade,
config.properties is updated and the existing settings are overwritten (with some exceptions—see below). To avoid losing your settings with each upgrade, use
custom.properties. Whenever you need to configure a Security Gateway setting (for example, proxy, port, or memory dumps), do this in the
custom.properties file and then simply restart Security Gateway.
custom.properties file is preserved during Security Gateway upgrade; it's copied in its entirety from your existing installation to the new one.

This feature is available for versions 135 and higher. In earlier versions, only the
config.properties file exists. If you're upgrading from a version of Dynatrace earlier than 135, then some properties will be automatically transferred from
config.properties in the old installation to
custom.properties in the new installation.

config.propertiesto a safe place.
- Following the upgrade, insert the copied settings into the appropriate section of the
config.properties. If no relevant section exists, create a section with the appropriate name (section names are enclosed in brackets, for example
Keep in mind that
custom.properties takes precedence over
config.properties. Therefore, if a setting occurs in both files, the value of the setting in the
custom.properties file will take precedence. Also, command line settings (if any) take precedence over those stored in
