Configure the state polling interval

This page describes how you can configure the interval for the periodic state update.

Fonto Review uses a periodic polling system to check if annotations have been changed in the CMS. It issues a POST /review/state request to retrieve the CMS state at that moment.

The interval used by the background polling mechanism, which defaults to 7 seconds, can be changed. The default interval is based on achieving a decent user experience, avoiding users making changes which they will eventually lose. The interval can be changed using the remote-review-state-update-interval-ms configuration variable.
