Maximum Number of Objects to Display Before Foldering (NAVCAP)

By default, the maximum number of child objects (that is, site collections, sites or lists) that can display directly beneath a single parent in the left navigation pane is 45.  (That is, up to 45 site collections can display beneath a Web application, up to 45 sites beneath a site collection, and so on).  This limit is set to provide you with predictable performance when opening nodes within the navigation tree; it takes additional time to open a node that contains a large number of objects.

If the number of child objects beneath a particular node exceeds the set limit, ControlPoint generates a series of subfolders which contain subsets of objects, grouped alphabetically, as shown in the example below.  

Hierarchy Foldering

ControlPoint Application Administrators can modify this number by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Maximum Number of Objects  to Display Before Foldering.

NOTE:  While you may want to decrease this value, it is generally recommended that you not increase it, as performance may be negatively impacted and may trigger a warning message in the browser.

Config Setting NAVCAP

This setting applies to site collections, sites, and lists.  The maximum number of SharePoint users and groups that display beneath a site are configured via different parameters.  See:

·Maximum Number of SharePoint Groups to Display in SharePoint Hierarchy (SPGROUPCAP)

·Maximum Number of Users to Display in SharePoint Hierarchy (SPUSERCAP)

 

Menu Style(s) Available to ControlPoint Users (NAVIGATIONMODE)

By default, the ControlPoint application allows for the use of both context menus in the left navigation pane and ribbon-style menus in the application header.

Ribbon or Right Click Menus

When both are enabled, individual ControlPoint users have the action of turning one or the other on or off for their own ControlPoint sessions.

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, specified which style(s) of menus are available for the farm by updating the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Menu Style(s) Available to ControlPoint Users.

Valid values are:

·B (both, which is the default option)

·C (context only)

·R (ribbon only)*

Config Setting NAVIGATIONMODE

* IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that in a multi-farm environment the ribbon will always be disabled, so this option should be used for single-farm installations only.

 

Preload All Site Collections in Server-side Cache (PRELOADSITECACHE)

By default, whenever you expand a Web application in the SharePoint Hierarchy,  site collections are loaded—and any folders within which site collections are grouped are built—in real time.  For Web applications that contain an excessively large number of site collections (such as thousands of MySites), the time it takes to expand a Web application may be prohibitively long.  

ControlPoint Application Administrators can configure ControlPoint to load site collections and folders from a server-side memory cache—so that the contents of Web applications can be displayed immediately—by changing the Value for the ControlPoint Setting Preload All Site Collections in Server-side Cache from false to true.

Config Setting PRELOADSITECACHE

This server-side cache is updated on the first request to ControlPoint after its application pool is recycled.  If IIS is configured for a nightly recycle, the restart would occur shortly thereafter.  Normally the first request is from the ControlPoint Scheduled Job Review task.  The server-side cache can also be refreshed on an as-needed basis from the Manage ControlPoint panel.

NOTE:  The child objects within a site collection are not affected by this setting and will always load in real-time.  

Whenever the Preload All Site Collections in Server-side Cache Value is changed, the application pool must be recycled for the change to take effect.

 

Show SharePoint Groups with No Permissions in Hierarchy (ShowNoPermSPGroup)

By default, SharePoint groups display in the SharePoint Hierarchy and group pickers only if they have an associated permissions level.  This prevents the navigation tree from being cluttered with groups that do not have an associated permissions level, and therefore are not being actively used in SharePoint.  

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, choose to display groups without permissions in the ControlPoint application interface by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting ShowNoPermSPGroup from the default (false) to either:

·True (to have groups without permissions display in both the SharePoint Hierarchy and group pickers)

OR

·False (to have groups without permissions display in group pickers but not in the SharePoint Hierarchy).

For example, you may choose not to clutter the SharePoint Hierarchy with groups that have no permissions, yet you may want to have them available to choose from when performing a ControlPoint action such as Set SharePoint Group Permissions.

Config Setting ShowNoPermSPGroups
