Overview of Jedox Web Settings


The Settings section of the Administration component in Jedox Web allows you to modify various Jedox Web settings as well as add new and even custom settings for your Jedox installation:

Settings are identified by their key (the name of the setting) and grouped into various categories. Custom settings created in the Settings section can be fetched in Reports by using the spreadsheet function CONFIG.GET(). You can also assign access rights to settings.

To modify an existing settings key, you can simply double-click it in the list; alternatively, you can select it and use the Edit Key button in the toolbar.

To add a new key, click the Add Key button in the toolbar. Keys are assigned a type, such as string, integer, etc. The type is used to validate the input for the value of the settings key. Values of type “password” will be encrypted.

To add a new key in a folder, enter in the field “Key” <folder name>.[<subfolder name>].<key name>.
The delimiters are points. If the folder name does not exist, it will be created anew. Lower-case characters should be used (the UI will display the folder names with the first letter in uppercase).

Example: studio.setting.frames
The entry above creates the key “Frames” in the new subfolder “Setting” of the existing folder “Studio”.

To edit the access rights of a setting key, select the key in the list and click the Security button in the toolbar. Access rights will only be used for custom settings keys, not for keys used by the system.
