Read-only mode

Puts the database in a state that allows read access, while blocking update operations.

In read-only mode, YouTrack continues to provide access to information for users who are working with the application, but does not accept changes. If you're experiencing problems with YouTrack, you can activate read-only mode while you investigate and isolate the issue. You can also use this setting to temporarily stop changes and reduce the size of your pending async job or notification analyzer queues.

Resource Sharing

In addition to the general REST API, which is always enabled, YouTrack supports for cross-origin resource sharing, or CORS. CORS support lets you enable JavaScript access to your YouTrack instance. For more information, read about cross-origin resource sharing on Wikipedia. You can also download samples of CORS usage here: https://github.com/vadimgurov/youtrack-cors-samples.

To enable access from a site (origin), select and configure either of the following parameters in the Resource Sharing section of the page:

SettingDescription
Allow all originsEnable to allow access from all origins with the REST API.
Allowed originsEnter a line-separated list of origins for which cross-origin requests are allowed. Specify each origin by domain name, including protocol and port number where applicable.

Deprecated REST API Traffic

This section of the page displays a list of recent requests that have been sent to endpoints that are supported by the deprecated REST API. Use this information to see if there are any client applications in your internal software ecosystem that continue to rely on the old API.

For more information, see Monitor REST API Traffic.

Logging

This setting lets you enable logging for specific event categories. The setting supports DEBUG and TRACE logging levels. Use this setting to troubleshoot problems with your YouTrack Standalone installation without having to restart the service.

The event categories that provide the most valuable information vary from one installation to another. The YouTrack support team provides the categories that are most appropriate for your installation in response to a specific support request.

SettingDescription
Event categories

Enter a line-separated list event categories.

  • To enable DEBUG level logging, add an event category name.

  • To enable TRACE level logging, append the event category name with :trace.
