Default permission is ALLOWED – user is allowed to log in ArchiveWeb.



Users/groups which already have some roles assigned manually are listed on the right. Click the user/group to display and manage its roles in the right pane.

Profile settings


Adjust your ArchiveWeb layout to your liking and needs. Under Manage settings/Profile define the style, language, layout, file archive servers to be displayed etc. To display the Profile options, click the logged-on user name in the right-upper corner. Select Manage settings from the down-drop menu, then click Profile option on the grey sub-bar. Now you can specify profile:



After clicking the Settings tab in the right-hand navigation you can adjust the style, i.e. the design of ArchiveWeb to your needs and liking:


·Under Language select the desired language for the application (The default language depends on the Windows local setting of the Archive Manager server.) NOTE: For this change to take effect, re-login is required.

·Date/Time format - select you preferred date and time format for the whole UI; default value depends on regional settings of your machine and the language selected in the Profile; when profile language is changed, date/time format is changed accordingly

·Maximum preview size [MB] – sets maximum file size that can be opened in a preview-pane. Displaying large item (with size more than 20MB) can cause out-of-memory exception. Default value is 20 MB.





·Automatic refresh interval (in seconds) – how often the Task list will be refreshed (reloaded) when the Task list pop-window is open; Setting small number may cause some performance issues; default number is 10 seconds

·Delete completed task - indicates that successfully completed task which does not return a value (especially database tasks such as Add/Remove Tag, Set/Unset legal hold flag, Mark for deletion and Extend retention time) will be automatically removed from the Task list; Default value is false (do not automatically remove completed task).


·Show search field in header

The visibility of top search panel (common search panel) can be managed at:

oAdministrator level

oUser profile level

Administrator level

Administrator can globally hide the top search panel by adding/editing the “ShowTopSearchPanel” key in the ArchiveWeb’s web.config file as follows:

<add key="ShowTopSearchPanel" value="false"/>

Default value for this key is true – which means that the top search panel is visible and user can manage its visibility in its user profile (Manage settings -> Profile).

If the value for this key is set to false – the top search panel will not be visible as well as Show search field in header option in user’s profile will not be available, so user is not able to manage top search panel visibility.

User profile level

When an administrator did not set “ShowTopSearchPanel” key to false in web.config, user can manage the top search panel visibility in user’s profile (Manage settings -> Profile) by setting Show search field in header check-box in the Search section.


·Remember last mailbox / server selection - indicates that selected mailboxes/servers from previous search are saved (it means next search operation will use these stored values). If this check box is unchecked, then for Metalogix Archive Manager for Exchange, all mailboxes in which the user has permissions are selected by default in Search>Mailboxes, and for Metalogix Archive Manager for Files, all servers in which the user has permissions are selected by default in Search>Servers. Default value for this setting is Enabled.

·Maximum number of search results – determines how many search results are returned from search (in previous versions of ArchiveWeb this setting was set globally in web.config under MaxSearchResults key)

·Full-text query - manages full-text search behavior; can be set as:

§Exact phrase

§Starts with *, e.g. *test

§Ends with *, e.g. test*

§Enclosed in *, e.g. *test*

Setting in full-text query directs full-text search behavior, how the phrase will be processed by search engine.

Default settings is “Exact phrase”.

·Hit highlight - Available only for Metalogix Archive Manager for Exchange. Select this check box to highlight the search phrase in the search results.

·Hit highlight color - color picker to choose a color.

·Common search behavior – define the default search scope for Common search under the Search tab; common search will be then executed accordingly only in the logged on user’s mailbox OR in all mailboxes to which the user has access; if needed this option can be changed when executing Common search (see the respective section of this manual)

oSet default search scope - By selecting the respective check boxes, define the default search scope for search from the top navigation ribbon.

·Exchange – allows you to search in archived emails

·Files – allows you to search in archived files


·Maximum text length - Treeview's node text will be trimmed to desired number of characters.


·Paging – set the Endless paging to display all items on one page or Show paging to limit the number of items on one page.

·Journal highlight color - choose a color from the color picker control to highlight the journal items.

·Items per page - If Show paging is selected, set the number of items to be displayed per page This number applies for full grid (if specified for the individual sections Exchange, Files etc.)


Individual sections - Exchange, Files, File Management, Audit

·Columns - in this section you can set columns to be displayed in individual list-views. e.g. in Archive list-view for Exchange (EXCHANGE/Archive drop-down) or in Search results list-view for Files (FILES/Search drop-down)

·Show inactive mailboxes – option to show inactive mailboxes in Archive and Search views; NOTE: Mailbox is inactive, if Mailbox is activated check-box is unchecked in the Archive Manager for Exchange / Enterprise Manager / Addressbook Manager

NOTE: Administrator can override this setting by adding "ShowNotActiveMailbox" key in ArchiveWeb's web.config in <appSettings> section, for example by adding <add key="ShowNotActiveMailbox" value="true" /> will force override all users "Show inactive mailboxes" setting, so all users will have permission to show inactive mailboxes.


·Use grid view - allows to set grid's behavior; select Full or Simple grid to customize your list-views for individual sections. If:

oSimple is selected - (default grid type) user works only with limited number of items (set via Items per page option in Profile or in the grid itself) (see the List view conventions section). Operations over grid such as Custom filters, sorting, ordering are performed over items currently displayed in the grid. Using Simple grid dramatically improves grid performance especially when working with huge number of items. Simple grid can be used only for Archive views and Auditing, Search result pages use full grid.


oFull is selected - standard list-view is displayed; the number of items displayed per page can be set only under Profile / Settings / Grid section / Items per page. This grid works with the whole record-set at once, therefore this grid option is not recommended for huge data.
