To stop setting preferences through the Expeditor managed settings framework, remove the reference to the settings XML file and unlock any previously read-only settings.
About this task
Discontinue use of the settings.xml file based on the method you used to distribute managed preferences.
The managed-settings.xml file and an administration update site URL
Remove the managed-settings.xml
file from the update site location.
The settings.xml file and a plugin_customization.ini file
Remove the com.ibm.rcp.managedsettings.provider.file/URL
setting from the plugin_customization.ini
file and provision the updated file to clients.
Managed settings that were previously pushed to the clients as read-only will continue to be used until they are specifically removed from the client.
Unlock all managed settings by editing the XML file:

- If the lastModDate atribute was used previously, change the lastModDate attribute to a newer timestamp for all group settings. Otherwise, skip this step.
- Provision the updated XML file to the client.
