SQL Server Connection String for xcAdmin Database (xcAdminConnectionString)

The ControlPoint Setting SQL Sever Connection String for xcAdmin Database is populated at the time ControlPoint is installed, based on the SQL server identified as the location for the ControlPoint Services Database.  

Config Setting xcAdminConnectionString

The xcAdminConnectionString Value should be modified only under rare and special circumstances (for example, if the location of the ControlPoint Services database or the authentication method for connecting to the database has changed).  

If you cannot connect to ControlPoint to update this setting:

1Open the ControlPoint Configuration Site.

2Navigate to the ControlPoint Settings list.

3Under the category Miscellaneous and Custom, open xcAdmin Connection String and edit as necessary.

Initial Screen (INITSCREEN)

If the ControlPoint Setting No Dashboard is set to True, ControlPoint Application Administrators can customize the content that displays when users log into ControlPoint or refresh their browsers by entering a web page url as the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Initial Screen.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

CP Setting Initial Screen

Init Screen Example

If you are using Chrome as your browser and the Content Security Policy (CSP) is enabled for the web page, ControlPoint will be unable to load the page content.

No Dashboard (NODASHBOARD)

By default, if you are using ControlPoint with SharePoint 2013 or later (Non-Standard installation)whenever you log into ControlPoint or refresh your browser, the right pane displays a dashboard which includes statistics about your SharePoint as well as links to popular ControlPoint features.


ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, choose to display a blank page by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting No Dashboard from False to True.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

Config Setting NoDashboard

This setting can also be used in conjunction with the setting Initial Screen to display a web page of your choice.
