Administration Panel

image_pdfimage_print

The Administration panel (shown below) and authorized access areas are visible to users with at least R rights for one of the following objects:

  • ste_users
  • ste_conns
  • ste_logs
  • ste_licenses
  • ste_sessions
  • ste_settings
  • ste_perf
  • audit

Users, Groups, Roles

Here you can edit users, groups, and roles for each Jedox connection (i.e., the connection to an OLAP server running behind Jedox Web) for which you have access rights. You can create or delete users, groups, and roles or change their details if you have at least D rights on the objects involved in user management (user, group, password, and rights). Otherwise, you will get an error message when you select a connection from the drop-down list in the user management settings.

When assigning rights within roles, we distinguish between Splash (S), Full Control/Delete (D), Write (W), Read (R), and No Access (N). For a legal object, only those rights that can actually be granted appear in the list.

Connections

Here you can create or delete database connections and servers, or change their details.

To consider the assigned rights, select the check mark for “Use login credentials”. Otherwise, the rights of the user name entered for the connection would be considered.

Internal connection

This connection is defined in the configuration files of Jedox Web to the OLAP server with the metadata and the System database for the authentication of the users. This connection does not exist as an object in the Connection Manager, and it cannot be changed.

You have access to the internal connection only if you have a role with full rights on all of the following objects:

  • user
  • group
  • password
  • rights

Note: If you have no “visible” access to a particular connection, you cannot use that connection in workbook formulas. Previously, such connections could be used for back-end purposes, such as changing a password via a static connection with admin credentials. On all levels, you are only able to work with connections they have access to.

Logs

Here you can find log messages for the installed Jedox modules. They can be sorted in a variety of ways:

  • by Log Type (Apache, Spreadsheet Server, OLAP Server)
  • by Log Level (Warning, Error)

Selection changes are only displayed after clicking the Refresh button. The log messages can be exported as a CSV file. The old ones, renamed Tomcat messages (e.g. file.log.1) are not displayed.

The log messages of the supervision server (SVS) are also displayed.

Licenses

Here you can activate and manage your licenses. Click on the links below for more detailed descriptions about these topics:

Sessions

Here you can find the running sessions. Your own session is marked with an asterisk. Double-click on a user session to get the current OLAP jobs and the license used.

To stop a job, select the corresponding user session and then the desired job in the “Active jobs” tab. Click on the “Stop Job” button (indicated below) to cancel this job.

Settings

Here you can find various settings, such as the default storage path and data for sending emails. They can be changed with a double-click.

For more details, see Overview of Jedox Web Settings.

Performance

Jedox Performance Monitor can log and display information for several key performance measures, including system hardware resources, number of logged-in users, etc.

You can find a more detailed description in the article Performance Monitor.

Audit

OLAP lets you store audit information for specific cubes. The audit information keeps track of all individual cell changes, such as the cell path, time of change, user, new value, operation (Splashing, Copy), etc.

You can find more details in the article Audit Information.
