Configure Column Settings


In Adaxes Web Interface, information in Active Directory object lists is divided into columns.

Initially, object lists are displayed with the default columns and users can add, remove and reorder them by clicking the Columns button located above the list.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure which columns are displayed in object lists by default, change the default sorting and grouping settings and restrict which columns users can add to the lists.

  1. Open Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    • On a computer, where Web Interface Configurator is installed, open the Start menu.
    • On the Start menu, select Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    The permissions to configure the Web Interface are delegated via Security Roles. By default, only Service Administrators have the appropriate rights. To enable other users to configure the Web Interface, grant them the corresponding permissions.

    • In Adaxes Administration Console, right-click your Adaxes service, point to New and click Security Role.
    • Enter a name for the new Security Role and click Next.
    • On the Permissions page, click the arrow inside the Add button and select Configure Web Interface.
    • Click Next and follow the steps in the wizard.
  2. In the top left corner, select the Web Interface you want to customize.

  3. In the left navigation menu, click Browsing.

    Scroll down to the Columns section.

  4. To modify the default column settings for a Web Interface component:

    • In the Columns section, select the Web Interface component for which you want to modify column settings.

      Columns for Reports and Business Units are configured in the settings of each report and Business Unit.
    • In the Columns visible by default list, specify the columns that will be visible by default for the selected Web Interface component.

    • Use the Group By and Sort By options to specify how to group and sort columns by default.

      Sorting or grouping objects can negatively affect the performance, as instead of loading only the objects that are visible in the list, all objects will be fetched.
  5. In the Available Columns section configure which columns users will be able to select in the Columns dialog.

    If a column is not in the list of available columns, it will not be displayed in the Web Interface, and users will not be able to add it using the Columns dialog.
  6. Save the changes.

    The settings in a section can be applied to other Web Interfaces. For this purpose, in the top right corner of the section, click the down arrow button and choose Apply to other Web Interfaces.
