This chapter describes how to change the basic functionality of Oracle WebCenter Content Server.

This chapter includes the following sections:

The instructions in this chapter are for changing system settings on Oracle WebLogic Server. Oracle WebCenter Content can also be deployed to an IBM WebSphere Application Server. For more information, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Third-Party Application Server Guide.

5.1 About Changing System Settings

Oracle WebCenter Content Server has a number of features that you can set up to change features systemwide according to your needs. For example, you can use the following administration tools within Oracle WebCenter Content Server to customize your content management system settings:

5.2 Changing System Settings Through the Admin Server

The Admin Server is a collection of web pages that you can use to configure systemwide settings for Oracle WebCenter Content Server. To access these web pages, click Admin Server from the Administration tray in the portal navigation bar, which displays the Admin Server main page. From this page, you can check the status of each server that is running, and you can check console output.

For more information about changing system settings through the Admin Server, see "Managing System Settings" in the Oracle WebCenter Content System Administrator's Guide for Content Server.

5.3 Changing System Settings Through the System Properties Application

The System Properties administration application is used to configure systemwide Oracle WebCenter Content settings for content security, Internet settings, localization, and other types of settings. In the System Properties application, you can set these options:

The application server is the primary tool for setting system properties for Oracle WebCenter Content; however, for some purposes you must use the System Properties application. You do not need administrative-level permissions to set these options; just access to the directory where the instance is installed.

For more information about changing system settings through the System Properties application, see "Managing System Settings" in the Oracle WebCenter Content System Administrator's Guide for Content Server.

5.4 Customizing the Library and System Home Page with the Web Layout Editor

The Web Layout Editor is used to customize the Library and system home (portal) page. To access this editor, click Web Layout Editor on the Admin Applets page. With the Web Layout Editor, you can change the organization of local web pages in the Library and build new portal pages for your site. You can create links to web sites outside your local site.

For information about the screens you can use to create web pages with the Web Layout Editor, see "Web Layout Editor Interface" in the Oracle WebCenter Content Application Administrator's Guide for Content Server.

5.5 Defining Security and Accounts for Users with the User Admin Application

You can define security groups, aliases, roles, and accounts for the users at your site using the User Admin function. To access this screen, select Admin Applets from Administration tray or menu, then click User Admin on the Administration Applets for user page. Options on this screen are used to create aliases, set permissions for security groups, establish roles and permissions associated with those roles, and customize information that is stored about users.

For more information, see "Managing Security and User Access" in the Oracle WebCenter Content System Administrator's Guide for Content Server.
