Introduction to Parameter Management
Navigate to "Parameters" in Admin. It appears like this:
A list of Parameter files is displayed in the main page. In the default sort order the most important ones are on top of the list: the global parameters, the parameters for your computer and for your user. Clicking on a parameter name in the list will navigate to the respective Parameter file contents (see below). It's also possible to modify the sorting order by clicking on the related column header.
Using faceted search you can get an overview about parameter files and filter them according to various facets.
It is possible to search by Parameter's name and is also possible to search by type - "type:user" or + "type:user + Doc" (also see Searching in DPE Web Applications). Currently, following types of parameters are supported:
- Private : A Private Parameter file can only be seen by the user who uploaded it.
- Shared : A Shared Parameter file can be seen by anybody.
Deleting Parameter Files
Delete parameter files by selecting them and pressing the delete button.
To delete parameter files of type COMPUTER you need the action right DpeAdmin.ParametersDeleteComputer.
To delete parameter files of type SHARED you need the action right DpeAdmin.ParametersDeleteShared.
