Specify important properties for the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project.


Project configuration

Project configuration




Project name (alias)

Alias name of project. The name will be shown in the user interface if the project change (map change) functionality is configured.


The shown name is not equal to the project id used for identifying a project (e.g. needed when using the project parameter in the URL used for starting a project). The project id is the name of the project configuration file (without file extension).

Metadata URL

Configure a reference to a metadata document (must be available via HTTP) as URL.


You may configure the unique Metadata document identifier (UUID) of a Catalog Service (CSW 2.0) here. In this case you must configure the SOAP interface of the Catalog Services in Metadata Display.

Metadata short description

Metadata short description shown as tooltip.

User name

Specifies an optional user name (together with attribute password) for simple access restriction.


Defines password (with user name) for simple access restriction.

Project description

This field can be used for important internal notes about the project that are intended exclusively for the admin. The information is stored solely in the project configuration (.xml file) and can therefore be viewed via the WebOffice Author. However, the information is not displayed anywhere else, neither in the graphical user interface nor in SynAdmin.

Project properties



The simple access restriction (configuration of a user name and password) is only recommended for securing a WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project during designing process. If the simple access restriction is used for productive WebOffice 10.9 SP1 projects, there will be limitations in usability. For securing productive WebOffice 10.9 SP1 projects, VertiGIS recommends to use WebOffice User Management.


If the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 application is called without being directed to any specific project, the application will display a window listing all available projects.
