  • IBM Content Navigator 3.0.x


You can configure the page size (the number of items retrieved) on the ICN server by setting a pageSize environment variable at OS level. Do the following for ibm content navigator pagination settings:

  • Edit vi /root/.bash_profile and amend.

pageSize=1000; export pageSize;

  • save and close.
  • The application server where ICN is deployed must be restarted after the environment variable is defined in order to take effect.
