Aeries.Net - Aeries.Net AppSettings.Config


This document details all available settings that can be set in the AppSettings.config. This file is located in a Virtual Directory located off the Aeries.Net website in IIS. The physical directory should be located in some other location on the file system and NOT within the Aeries.Net directory.

You can manually create the AppSettings.config file by creating a New Text File and renaming it to AppSettings.config. To Edit AppSettings.config, Eagle Software recommends Notepad. Use the Right-Click Menu to Edit AppSettings.config using Notepad.

  • SystemType
    • Valid Values:
      • Admin
      • Parent
      • Teacher
    • This establishes when Aeries.Net is supposed to focus its feature set to a certain type of user. Using "Admin" will allow Aeries.Net Users and Admins to access Aeries.Net normally. Using "Parent" will redirect page requests to LoginParent.aspx. Using "Teacher" will do nothing except when combined with the "LimitToCurrentPortalType" setting (see below).
  • LimitToCurrentPortalType
    • Valid Values:
      • True
      • False
    • When combined with "SystemType" values of "Admin", "Parent", or "Teacher" a setting of "True" will restrict the current instance of Aeries.Net to only allow logins from the specified type. For "Parent", attempts to hit Login.aspx will redirect to LoginParent.aspx. For "Teacher", login attempts by non-teachers will be rejected. For "Admin", login attempts by non Aeries.Net admins or Aeries.Net users will be rejected.
  • DistrictName
    • This setting is used in conjunction with the "ProductKey" setting to enable access to Aeries Analytics features of Aeries.Net. The value entered into this setting should be given to you by Eagle Software personnel.
  • ProductKey
    • This setting is used in conjunction with the "DistrictName" setting to enable access to Aeries Analytics features of Aeries.Net. The value entered into this setting should be given to you by Eagle Software personnel.
  • External
    • Valid Values:
      • True
      • False
    • This setting can be used in conjunction with the Portal Option "Disable Attendance if Site is External." It will disable the taking of attendance for this instance of Aeries.Net when the value is set to "True".
  • Beta
  • Valid Values:
    • True
    • False
  • This setting, when set to "True" will enable pre-release features of the system. Do not use this setting unless you are working with Eagle Software development staff on beta, custom, or personalized development. Most features enabled by this setting are dependent on back-end database changes that must be made with very specialized SQL scripts.
