Web Manager


The Docsvault Web Manager dialog allows you to manage most aspects of your Docsvault Web Application.



Only the Docsvault administrator user admin or any member of the administrators group can log into the Docsvault Web Manager with full access.



The Docsvault Web Manager is divided into many nodes and they will be discussed below.

This node displays the current information about the Docsvault Web Application like its application pool it is running under, its primary site and its installed location. The Site bindings list displays all the sites currently bound to the Docsvault Web Application. The site bindings along with many other site parameters for this application can be changed in the IIS manager dialog under the site named 'DocsvaultWeb'.

You can clear the user session by clicking on Clear Connection button.


note Important Connection Note:

User connections are managed by the application pool running the site and cannot be disconnected from this dialog. If users are inactive while still logged on they will automatically be logged off as per their idle timeout settings in their user options for web client (if it is set). If this option is not set and the user closes the browser without properly logging out of the application, the connection will be cleared by the application pool as per its Idle Time-Out settings.

Restarting the DocsvaultWeb site from IIS manager will also clear out all active connections
