OX6 GUI settings

This table shows a partial list of OX6 GUI settings. These settings are stored in a javascript object notation (JSON) which is directly computed by the GUI. Information about the used format can be found in the HTTP API . By default, this object does not existent upon user creation and is stored by the GUI after the first logout of the user. This object however can be manipulated through the RMI interface (as well as on the command line). It is not necessary to define all settings (inner objects), missing ones will be added by the GUI automatically. Please be very careful if you change the settings after it has been initialized and stored by the GUI, all existing settings will be lost because they will be overwritten! Please also take care the you use the correct format of that object, otherwise the user might not be able to login (e.g. on a missing comma or bracket). This article refers to the OX6 frontend settings, if your are looking for the AppSuite UI documentation please take a look here http://oxpedia.org/index.php?title=AppSuite:UI
