User Settings

This article applies to the Admin Console > TreeGeneral.png General > TreeGeneralNode.png User Settings.


The User Settings give administrators choices about how to store and utilize users’ preferences, such as which Dashboards and/or Reports to execute when they enter Exago.

User Preference Storage Method

How to store User Preferences such as which Dashboards and/or Reports to execute when a user enters Exago.


A user is identified by the values of the system parameters @userId@ and @companyId@.

There are four possible values:

  • None — Users cannot modify User Preference features, and the user interface icon is hidden.
  • Local Storage (default) — User Preferences are stored in the browser’s HTML5 local storage. However, a user’s preferences will not be carried over to other machines or browsers and will be lost if the user clears the browser cache.
  • External Interface — User Preferences are stored and retrieved via the External Interface. This is a deprecated extensibility feature that should not be used for new installations.
  • Server Events (recommended) — User Preferences are stored and retrieved via Server Events. This requires the global events onGetUserPreferences and onSetUserPreferences to be implemented.

Startup Report(s) Replace Getting Started

Set to False to display both the Getting Started Content and any Dashboard and/or Reports that were set to run at startup. Set to True to hide the Getting Started Content if any Dashboards and/or Reports execute when a user enters Exago.

Maximum Number of Startup Reports

Sets the number of Dashboards and/or Reports that can be executed when a user enters Exago.

Allow User Reports

Set to False to prevent users from saving changes made to reports in the Report Viewer as User Preferences. Set to True to allow changes in the Report Viewer to be stored in User Preferences and applied to future report executions.
