The Configuration Manager

From the Configuration Manager, a system administrator can centrally store and manage INFOConnect Enterprise Edition configuration files on MCS. By saving user-defined information to a central location, a roaming user can access his or her configuration from any workstation.

INFOConnect configuration files include the following types:

Session (.ADP, .APP)
Compiled CASL macro (.XWC)
Source CASL macro (.XWS)
Navigation (.QPR)
HotSpot (.EHS)
QuickPad (.EQP)
Color scheme (.EUC, .E3C, .E5C, .EDC)
Toolbar (.ETB)

These configuration files are created or modified from within INFOConnect Enterprise Edition, and are then uploaded to MCS using the INFOConnect Configuration Publisher utility. After being uploaded to MCS, the configuration files appear on the Manage INFOConnect Enterprise Edition Configurations page in the MCS management panel.

From the list of files that appear on the Manage INFOConnect Enterprise Edition Configurations page, the administrator can create a configuration package. A configuration package is implemented on MCS as a named folder and can be one of two types:

After creating any desired configuration packages, you assign configuration files or packages to users or groups.

You can also use the Configuration Manager to copy, rename, or delete configuration files or packages. However, only configuration packages can be edited from MCS; single files must be edited from the workstation and then uploaded to MCS.

Downloading and Modifying Files

Upon startup of INFOConnect Enterprise Edition, configuration files are downloaded to the user's computer after the File Synchronization service determines which files, if any, should be downloaded. Subsequently, the user can choose to create or modify an existing configuration file. When INFOConnect Enterprise Edition shuts down, the user-modified file is uploaded to MCS. When INFOConnect is started again, the File Synchronization service compares the version information of all configuration files on the workstation with that of the corresponding files assigned by the administrator. If a configuration file assigned to the user does not exist on the workstation, or if the version of a file on MCS has been modified by the administrator and is newer than the version of the same file on the workstation, the file is automatically downloaded to the workstation.
