1E 8.1 (on-premises)



Platform features are now enabled by using the BackgroundChannelUrl instead of PlatformURL.

The URL of the Tachyon Platform, specifically the Tachyon Background Channel, which provides a reverse proxy for the Content Distribution component of Tachyon Platform. Usually of the form https://<BackgroundChannelServer>:<BackgroundChannelPort>/Background/

Registry value

Default value


Installer property

Platform\ PlatformURL


Located under the following registry keys, depending on the component.

  • For NomadBranch, it is found under HKLM\Software\1E\NomadBranch\Platform

  • For NomadBranchAdminUIExt on 64-bit machines, it is found under HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\1E\NomadAdminUI\Platform

  • For NomadBranchAdminUIExt on 32-bit machines, it is found under HKLM\Software\1E\NomadAdminUI\Platform


Do not configure this registry setting, it is automatically configured on service startup.

To enable SSD when you install Nomad, you must specify the MODULE.NOMAD.SSDENABLED installer property and ensure the Tachyon client is enabled by specifying SWITCH and BACKGROUNDCHANNELURL installer properties. If MODULE.NOMAD.SSDENABLED is specified during installation, the registry value of ContentRegistration is automatically set to 1.

If you want to enable SSD as a provider after installation, then you also need to configure the registry values for SSDEnabled and ContentRegistration, in addition to enabling the Tachyon client. The ContentDistribution registry setting is found under the Platform key.

In legacy versions of Nomad, Platform features were provided using ActiveEfficiency. This required the PlatformURL setting to be configured. This is no longer required. You will see that the PlatformURL registry is used, but this is configured automatically by Nomad on startup by querying the value that the Tachyon client is using (stored in the 1EClient.conf file).
