jetbrains.dnq.textIndex.minPrefixQueryLength integer3Sets the minimum length of a prefix query string to a set number of characters. If prefix queries and wildcard strings do not return all matching word forms in a search query, set this value to 2. Setting this system property affects the performance of your YouTrack server. The lower the value, the slower the performance of your server.
jetbrains.youtrack.mailLimit integer0Sets a daily limit for the number of email messages that are sent with the issue.sendMail() method in workflows. When set to 0, there is no limit. The default value for YouTrack InCloud instances is 100. string/dashboardSets the default start page for your YouTrack server. Enter a relative path to your base URL with a leading slash.

The following JVM options let YouTrack connect with third-party services through a proxy server:

http.proxyHostThe host name of your proxy server.
http.proxyPortThe port number that the proxy server listens to.
https.proxyHostThe host name of your secure proxy server.
https.proxyPortThe port number that the secure proxy server listens to.
http.nonProxyHostsA list of hosts that YouTrack accesses directly, bypassing the proxy server.
  • Delimit multiple hosts with a vertical bar.
  • Use the asterisk as a wildcard character to specify a pattern.
The list of non-proxy hosts can be used with both HTTP and HTTPS protocols. If this property is not set, all traffic is routed through the proxy server.
