2.1 Site Tab





The Site menu option contains five items- Manage Sites, Manager Server, Manage Help Links, Event Viewer and FacilitiesMap Licensing. 

Manage Sites


Editing the Site

Click the pencil icon at the beginning of the row to edit the site entry.



Site (required): Enter the name of the site. This value will appear as the web site title for the web site. If the FacilitiesMap installation has more than one site defined, then this value will be used in the drop down for the default login screen.

Site Type (required): Select the type of Mapping Engine that will be used for the site. Currently ArcGIS Server 9.3 and MapGuide Enterprise 2010-2013 are supported.

Enabled: Select this option to enable the site. Un-checking the option will make the site inaccessible and remove it as an option in the login site selection drop down list.

Site Title (required): This is the name of the site, which is shown at the top of the browser window.

Enable Print Legend: When using custom plotting, this will display the legend at the bottom.  More information on customizing the Legend here.

Allowed Print Scales: When using custom plotting, this will set the select-able scales in the drop down.

Print Footer: When using custom plotting, this is the text on the bottom of the page.  Mouse over the ? icon for custom output information.


Encryption Key/Encryption IV (required): These values are used for passing security credentials to an outside application using FmStringParser.Encrypt/Decrypt functions. These need to match on the sending (FMv2) and receiving (outside application) end. These are a comma-delimited list of 24 integers from 0-255 (no spaces). You can generate random values on each by clicking on the randomize (die) icon in the parent site listing page.

Background Login Image URL (optional): This allows you to set up an alternative background image for the map site login screen. This must be a fully qualified domain that links directly to a web-friendly image (.jpg, .png, .gif, etc).

Domain Name (optional): This value only has an effect if more than 1 site exists. In this case, if the domain of either the administrator or login pages match the value here, then no dropdown will be shown to select sites, it will be assumed that the domain of the matching site is the one to be logged into.

Site Login URL (optional): This field is used to specify the URL for the FacilitiesMap application. This value, if set, overrides the Site Login URL in the Server settings for this site only.
Administrator Login URL (optional): This field is used to specify the URL for the FacilitiesMap Administrator. This value, if set, overrides the Administrator Login URL in the Server settings for this site only.
Administrator Root URL (optional): This value must be set to the URL or virtual directory of administrator site where the default.aspx page is located. This is setup within the web server. For example: http://websiteurl.com/fmv2/admin. This value, if set, overrides the Administrator Root URL in the Server settings for this site only.

Administrator Name: Enter the name of the administrator of the site.
Administrator Email: Enter the e-mail for administrator of the site. This e-mail will be used when notifications are sent to users or when users are activated or try to retrieve their passwords.


New Users Start Activated: If this field is selected, when a user registers to access the site, they will be automatically be activated and will be able to use the site immediately.  Otherwise an administrator will have to activate the account.  If unchecked, a new user will also receive an email verification email (with a link to click to verify their email).

Notify Administrators of New Account: If this field is selected, when a user registers to access the site, the administrators will be notified via e-mail.  If "New Users Start Activated" is not checked, the administrators will not receive an email until after the new user verifies their email address.

Custom Logo URL (optional): This value can be used to replace the FacilitiesMap logo in the top bar panel of the Front End Interface.

Logo Panel Height: This value controls the height of the logo panel on the front end interface. This value can be ignored, unless you’re using a Custom Logo URL. If so, then this value should be set to the height of the custom logo image.

Maximum Selection Count: Limits the number of features that any individual user can select on the map and still get a result in the information panel. This limit exists to prevent users from overloading the server with extremely high selection requests. In general, this value should be less than or equal to the "Maximum Combined Results Count", which limits the amount of records that can be displayed (since most feature to record ratios are at least 1:1).

Maximum Combined Results Count: Limits the number of records that can be returned via a search or by map feature selection and still get a result in the information panel. This limit exists to prevent users from overloading the server with extremely high search/selection requests. In general, this value should be greater than or equal to the "Maximum Selection Count", which limits the amount of features that can be selected (since most feature to record ratios are at least 1:1).

Default Report Behavior: The options define how the application behaves when options are selected from results displayed in the Search Results (Infobar) pane. (Only supported with version 2 of the Search Results Pane)  This section allows you to edit the site settings for your site. These settings will affect the overall functionality and display of the FacilitiesMap Application.

The settings are described below:


On Zoom Button:

§ Zoom: zoom to all of the objects in the result set

§ Select/Highlight: select/highlight all of the objects in the result set
