Account Settings

Overview

The Account Settings screen provides administrators the ability to modify global settings for the selected account. These are top-level settings, meaning that they affect all sites, directories, users, and groups within the account. Account settings in the SuperAdmin interface are the same as the account settings available to a Level 10 administrator when logged in to a site.

By clicking on an account name in the Accounts list view, an administrator is taken to the Account Settings screen. Additionally, administrators can access this screen by hovering over the account name in the Accounts list view and selecting Edit, or by selecting the checkbox next to an account name and selecting Edit from the table header.

The Account Settings screen is divided into sections. Each section has specific features and functionality. For more information on these sections, visit the following sections of this page:

  • General Settings: Allows administrators to edit general account information, such as first and last name or email address of the primary contact.
  • Login Settings: Allows administrators to edit settings pertaining to logging in to the account, such as the number of failed login attempts before a user is locked out.
  • Publish Settings: Allows administrators to edit settings that are available for or control the publishing of pages within the account’s sites.
  • Login Page: Allows administrators to set a custom login page and controls which authentication process to use.
  • Auxiliary Sites: Setting auxiliary sites is a way in which additional file location options can be made available to the users when they wish to insert links or media.
  • Add-Ons: Allows administrators to configure Add-Ons that appear in the global navigation bar of the account.
  • Optional Features: Controls miscellaneous tools and features that can be enabled or disabled.

Resource Sharing

Certain content resources are shared at different levels within the OU Campus CMS. For example, toolbar assignments apply at the site level. Page templates, on the other hand, are shared at the skin level.
