The Application Settings pages enable Managers to update configuration settings that are required by various components of the WebFOCUS Business User Edition web application. You can view or edit the application settings through the Administration Console.
Initially, WebFOCUS Business User Edition reads the configuration file to locate parameters and their values. If a parameter does not exist in the file, WebFOCUS Business User Edition will then obtain the parameter and its value from the web.xml file of the web application currently deployed by WebFOCUS Business User Edition.
Change Management settings determine which file types can be exported during the change management process, the format of the exported file, and whether some legacy functionality is preserved.
Determines, by file extension, which files from the Reporting Server or the web will be included in exports created by the change management feature. The values included by default are acx, bmp, css, fex, gif, htm, html, ico, jpe, jpeg, jpg, js, mas, mnt, png, sty, and svg.
This option is not relevant to WebFOCUS Business User Edition.
When selected (True), the export package is compressed and delivered in a zip file.
Select an option from the drop-down menu to specify the name format of the zip file.
When selected (True), the export package is flagged for signature verification, which ensures that the code has not been tampered with and that the signature was produced with the expected key.
Deferred Reporting settings determine how deferred reports are processed.
When this check box is selected, the default setting, users are prompted to optionally customize the description for the deferred report, which defaults to the title of the report being run deferred. This occurs whenever the description defined in the parameter (IBIMR_defer_description) has not been submitted with the run deferred report request.
When this check box is cleared, the title of the report being submitted to run deferred is assigned to the deferred report description automatically, and no prompt appears.
When this check box is selected, the default setting, the Deferred Request Submitted window displays to confirm a successful deferred request. The user clicks OK to close the window.
When this check box is cleared, the Deferred Request Submitted window does not display.
Activates an automated message that prompts the user to confirm the deletion of a deferred report. When this check box is selected, which is the default, a message prompts the user to confirm the deletion, so a deletion requires two clicks. When this check box is cleared, the user is not prompted to confirm the deletion, so a deletion requires only one click. Making a large number of deletions is faster when suppressing the confirmation message.
ESRI settings defines the connection to the local application that supports Esri-based maps.

Note: Managed Reporting uses a separate variable setting, which is IBIMR_prompting.
The HTML template that defines the auto prompt layout.
Specifies the value (_FOC_NULL or FOC_NONE) that the client assigns (in a -SET command) to the amper variable when the dynamic multi-select list No Selection value is selected. The default value is _FOC_NULL.
Text Generation Server settings define the connections to an independent server that provides narrative descriptions for chart headers, footers, and tooltips.
Identifies the URL of the external natural language generation (NLG) server that provides narrative descriptions for chart headers, footers and tooltips. If your product installation supports natural language generation for charts, type the URL of the text generation server in this setting. This setting is blank, by default.
When you activate the use of an external natural language generation (NLG) server, this setting contains a value, typically:
