Changing the does not take effect in Crowd

You make changes to the configuration file, but even after restarting Crowd the new attributes do not take place.


There are several files located in the Crowd installation directory: 

  • ./client/conf/
  • ./crowd-openidserver-webapp/WEB-INF/classes/
  • ./demo-src/
  • ./demo-webapp/
  • ./demo-webapp/WEB-INF/classes/
  • ./etc/

This can cause confusion since those other files are used for different aspects of Crowd.


  • Make the changes to the proper file; specifically the one located on the root of the Crowd home directory, as explained here: Important Directories and Files
