News Feed Configuration

The News Feed is a panel on the main Meridian page which displays information from the OpenNMS website RSS news feed. This can help keep users informed of the latest OpenNMS and Meridian news.

The Meridian server makes REST queries to the OpenNMS RSS feed to get the latest feed data.

This feature is enabled by default, but can be disabled using the configuration below. Disabling will remove the panel from the front page and the server will no longer make queries for the feed.

If you would like to change the feed settings, you can set the following options in ${OPENNMS_HOME}/etc/
