The iManage Update Manager service performs periodic checks for software updates by running iManage Updater. By default, it performs this check every 15 minutes. You can configure this frequency as follows:

  1. Open the UpdateManagerConfiguration.xml file, located at %ProgramData%\iManage\AgentServices\configs

  2. Set the required value (in seconds) for the checkForUpdateIntervalSeconds property.

    <!-- checkForUpdateIntervalSeconds sets the number of seconds between checks for updates. -->
    <!-- autoUpdateEnabled is true if auto-update is to be enabled. -->

You can also upload the file using iManage Control Center (using the Client Setup > Office tab > Configuration option) like the other configuration files to ensure that the configuration changes are managed centrally. Once users connect to the server, it is downloaded to their machines in the %ProgramData%\iManage\AgentServices\CentralizedConfigs folder. For more information, refer to the sections about configuration files iniManage Work Desktop for Windows Customization Guide.


This file is read dynamically from both locations, that is, the application reads any changes made to the file without the need to restart the machine.
