16 System Settings Overview

Oracle Enterprise Repository's System Settings section allows administrators to configure the basic Oracle Enterprise Repository operation and to enable/disable specific features.

This chapter contains the following sections:

16.1 Access System Settings

To access the system settings, perform the following steps:

  1. Click System Settings in the sidebar on the Oracle Enterprise Repository Admin screen.

    Figure 16-1 Oracle Enterprise Repository System Settings Page

    Description of Figure 16-1 follows
    Description of "Figure 16-1 Oracle Enterprise Repository System Settings Page"

    The System Settings section opens in the main pane.

    System Settings are organized into categories. Each category is further divided into feature groups.

    Figure 16-2 Functional Settings

    Description of Figure 16-2 follows
    Description of "Figure 16-2 Functional Settings"

  2. Click the plus icon to expand the display of any category or feature group.

  3. Click the minus icon to collapse the display.

16.2 Search for System Settings

System settings for particular features can be located using the System Settings Search.

  1. Enter a search term in the System Settings Search box. The relevant category sections expand to display the relevant System Settings.

In some cases it may be necessary to enable specific properties in order to activate certain optional Oracle Enterprise Repository features. These properties is provided by Oracle Support.

  1. Obtain the necessary system setting property.

  2. Enter the system setting property in the Enable New System Setting text box.

  3. Click Enable. The appropriate System Setting category will open in the lower pane.

  4. Edit the system setting properties as necessary.

Notes on editing

  • The Status field can be set to Active or Inactive. When inactive, no email notification is sent for the specified event. Active is the default status.

  • Substitutions are dynamic variables that can be placed within the subject, message, and Mail From email address. When the notification is sent, these variables is replaced with the appropriate values. The following example demonstrates the syntax for entering a substitution for the name of the asset:

    You have submitted the asset called <%asset.name%>

    A list of acceptable substitutions is displayed with each email notification on the Email Templates screen.
