Customising web config

Revision as of 15:20, 16 June 2015 by Leela (talk)

There are several settings that administrators can edit in the web.config file to alter the default behaviour of XLCubedWeb.

If these don't exist in the <appSettings> section they can be added.

  • StartupReport - Replaces the default startup page with the specified report. The report should be in the form:
   <add key="StartupReport" value="Folder/reportname.xml"/> 


  • CustomHelpUrl - Allows you to direct your users to a custom help portal you have created.
  • ProgressBarUrl - Sets a custom image for the progress bar.
  • ProgressBarCss - Custom css class for the progress image. Built in values are "xl3-progress", the standard position and "xl3-progress-center" which centers the image.
  • AllowHtmlColon - Allows outputting or raw html into workbooks. True/False.
  • ShowReportsBeforeFolders - New in Version 8.1. Set to True to display reports before sub-folders
  • UsePathsForSQLRepository - New in Version 8.1. Set to True so that the "Get URL" or reports selected in the SharePoint web part are referred to using the path rather then a Guid when running the SQL Repository
