User configuration files

There are several configuration files that determine a user's permissions and properties. These files are normally edited via the web administration interface, however some advanced configuration can be achieved with direct editing.

The configuration files are read with the following precedence:

admin/users/_user_.ini

The particular user's configuration.

conf/admin-ui.ini

The customised system-wide settings for Funnelback administration.

conf/admin-ui.ini.default

The system-wide defaults for Funnelback administration.

conf/file-manager.ini

folder rules for the file-manager

So, for example, the values in the user's configuration file take precedence over those from the system-wide defaults.

Configuration file formats

The configuration files are plain text files, similar to INI files, items are grouped together into sections and each line comprises a key/value pair, for example:

# begin this user's info...
[user-info]
collections = shakespeare
email = fred@funnelback.com
fullname = Fred Nurke
info = Phone 123456

[reporter]
limit.details = 999
limit.summary = 8

A list of keys and their description can be found in the INI file template under SEARCH_HOME/share/sample-super-user.ini.dist.
