Customising web config

Revision as of 13:08, 6 July 2015 by Colin Overton (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
  • KeepAlive - New in Version 8.1. XLCubed will make a web request to the server every minute to keep the session alive, and stop open reports from expiring.
  • GoogleMapsJavascriptUri and GoogleMapsMarkerManJavascriptUri - New in Version 8.1. Allows specifying a non-default location for the map javascript. Useful when google.com is not reachable, e.g. in China.
