Configure the File web.config

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Note: Before configuring the file web.config, please create a database in your selected RDBMS that will serve as usermanagement database.

 

The next configuration steps of UserManagement Admin Web are done inside the file web.config, which can be found at the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\UserManagementAdminWeb directory.

 

The file web.config holds the connection information to access the UserManagement database(s) and the visibility settings for the wizards in UserManagement Admin Web. Every database connection has a connection profile (GeoUserManagementConnection).

From a technical point of view the connection is established via the file GeoProject.dll.

 

Note that you need at least a text editor capable of editing UTF8 text files for editing web.config, e.g. UltraEdit32, PSPad or Notepad++. Do NOT USE NOTEPAD instead – the web.config file would get corrupted then.

 

Note: The configured database user has to be granted at least Read (Select) and Write (Insert, Update, Delete) rights at the tables of the UserManagement model.

Parameter

Description

Valid & Default Values

Profile

Name of the database connection, which is shown at the dropdown box at the UserManagement Admin Web login site.


Host

Database host name (if necessary) and database instance (if necessary)


DatabaseType

Database type

ORACLE

MSSQL

POSTGRESQL

SQLITE

DatabaseName

Database name


Username

Database user name

(Not needed if database type is MSAccess; the application requires from a not secured MSAccess database the default login user name "admin")


Password

Password of the database connection (if necessary) encrypted by the included software

Note: For details how to encrypt your password, please see chapter Creating an Encrypted Password.


ProviderExtension

Connecting to a  64-bit OLEDB-Client for Oracle and  MSSQL set the value '.1'

Valid values:
<empty>
.1

KeepconnectionAlive

0: Defines, that the database connection is closed after every database access.

1: Defines, that the database connection keeps alive.

Note: The value '1' improves the performance especially for MS Access, because the database connection keeps alive. But keep in mind that the session on the server also remains open for a bit  longer.

We recommend

'1' -> MS Access

'0' -> SQL and Oracle

Valid values:

0

1

WebOfficeProjectURL

URL to the WebOffice project in order to communicate project approvals to users by mail. (e.g. after a group change by the administrator).


KeepLoggingEntriesPeriode

Specified in days: If logging entries (of the self-registration) are older than the configured value, these logging entries will be deleted.


WebOfficeURL

URL to the WebOffice administration page (SynAdmin): Enables a button in the UserManagement Admin Web to reload the UserManagement data of the WebOffice application and reset the cache.


WebOfficePassword

Specified in days: If logging entries (of the self-registration) are older than the configured value, these logging entries will be deleted.
