Create platform client settings

You need to create the OlpClientSettings object to get catalog and partition metadata, retrieve versioned, volatile, and stream layer data, and publish data to the HERE platform.

To create OlpClientSettings object:

  1. To perform requests asynchronously, create the TaskScheduler object.

    std::shared_ptr<olp::thread::TaskScheduler> task_scheduler =
  2. To internally operate with the HERE platform Services, create the Network client.

    std::shared_ptr<olp::http::Network> http_client = olp::client::


    The Network client is designed and intended to be shared.

  3. To configure the handling of failed requests, create the RetrySettings object with the following parameters:

    • retry_condition – the HTTP status codes that you want to retry.
    • backdown_strategy – the delay between retries.
    • max_attempts – the number of attempts.
    • timeout – the connection timeout limit (in seconds).
    • initial_backdown_period – the period between the error and the first retry attempt (in milliseconds).


    We recommend that your application includes retry logic for handling HTTP 429 and 5xx errors. Use exponential backoff in the retry logic.

    olp::client::RetrySettings retry_settings;
    retry_settings.retry_condition =
          [](const olp::client::HttpResponse& response) {
             return olp::http::HttpStatusCode::TOO_MANY_REQUESTS == response.status;
    retry_settings.backdown_strategy = ExponentialBackdownStrategy();
    retry_settings.max_attempts = 3;
    retry_settings.timeout = 60;
    retry_settings.initial_backdown_period = 200;
  4. Authenticate to the HERE platform.

  5. (Optional) For data that is stored in the cache, to add expiration limit, set the default_cache_expiration to the needed expiration time.

    By default, expiration is disabled.


    You can only disable expiration for the mutable and in-memory cache. This setting does not affect the protected cache as no entries are added to the protected cache in the read-only mode.

    std::chrono::seconds default_cache_expiration = std::chrono::seconds(200);
  6. Set up the OlpClientSettings object.

    olp::client::OlpClientSettings client_settings;
    client_settings.authentication_settings = auth_settings;
    client_settings.task_scheduler = task_scheduler;
    client_settings.network_request_handler = http_client;
    client_settings.retry_settings = retry_settings;
    client_settings.cache =
    client_settings.default_cache_expiration = std::chrono::seconds(200);

The OlpClientSettings class pulls together all the settings for customization of the client library behavior:

  • retry_settings – sets olp::client::RetrySettings to use.
  • proxy_settings – sets olp::authentication::NetworkProxySettings to use.
  • authentication_settings – sets olp::client::AuthenticationSettings to use.
  • network_request_handler – sets the handler for asynchronous execution of network requests.
