Miscellaneous and Custom Configuration Settings

These configuration settings display in the ControlPoint Settings list under the category Miscellaneous and Custom.


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).  

IMPORTANT: Currently,  if you need to modify the connection string,  you will need to update the parameter <connectionStrings>  in the CPConfiguration.exe.config file on the machine where ControlPoint Online is installed (located by default in the directory C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint Online\ControlPointFeatures).  If you update the SQL Server Connection String for xcAdmin Database setting directly, it will be overwritten the next time you upgrade ControlPoint.  However, the setting will reflect any changes made in the config file.

Url for ControlPoint Outside the Default Zone (INBOUNDCONTROLPOINTURL)

When ControlPoint is first installed, the ControlPoint Setting Inbound ControlPoint URL is populated with the value http://<MACHINENAME>:<portnumber> where MACHINENAME is the name of the server on which ControlPoint is installed and <portnumber> is the port number used for the ControlPoint Web application.

If an alternate access mapping or SSL is used to access ControlPoint, this default URL will continue to be used to access another ControlPoint page from within the the application.


ControlPoint Application can, however, ensure that the alternate URL is used instead by specifying it as the value of the ControlPoint Setting Inbound ControlPoint URL.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.


No Dashboard (NODASHBOARD)

By default, 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.
