THIS EXTENSION DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE!
It has been made obsolete by the Global Variables module and has been eliminated.
We leave the previous explanation below as a historical reference.
The Configuration Editor extension permits us to edit global configuration variables to adjust the functionality of our application.
All of these variables are saved in the main config.inc.php file and can also be edited there. This is just an easy way of modifying those variables without needing access to the server.
The functionality of this extension is straight forward; as soon as we access we are greeted with an edit screen for the available variables and their current value. Clicking on the save button will update the config.inc.php file and the new values will be available on the next load of any page in the application.
If the config.inc.php file is not editable by the webserver user you will see a warning message indicating this state and you WILL NOT be able to change any variables.
There is a warning message that states:
“You are editing the configuration details. Please do double check before saving the values.”
I stress this here again: any incorrect value in any variable will break the WHOLE application, please be careful and use correct values for each variable!
The available variables are:
|Mini Calendar Display||boolean||Calendar on global tool bar|
|World Clock Display||boolean||Clock of the world on global tool bar|
|Calculator Display||boolean||Calculator on global tool bar|
|Use RTE||boolean||Whether to use Rich Text Editor or not in a few places that it is available|
|Helpdesk Support Email-Id||string||This is the email that will be used when sending emails related to tickets|
|Helpdesk Support Name||string||This is the name that will be used when sending emails related to tickets|
|Max.Upload Size (Max 5MB)||number||This is the application file size limit of files you can upload. Note that your PHP may have more restrictive values.|
|Max. entries per page in listview||number||The number of records to show in the list views. Note that incrementing this value will affect loading time.|
|Max. History Viewed||number||This number controls the number of entries you see when you click the history icon at the Tools Area.|
|Default Module||string||Module that will be loaded when we log into the application|
|Max. text length in listview||number||Values in listviews are truncated to make the table easier to read. This variable establishes how many characters are shown. A maximum of 100 characters is permitted|
|Domains authorized for CORS||string||Space or comma separated list of domains we will accept Cross-origin resource sharing from|
There are more fine tuning variables available directly in the config.inc.php file and also in config.performance.php
