Identify Web Interface sites

The Web Interface page in the Configuration Center main window lists all Web Interface sites of the current version that are deployed on the Web server running the Web Interface. For each Web Interface site, the list provides the following information:

  • IIS Web site  The name of the Web site that holds the Web application implementing the Web Interface site
  • Web app alias  The alias of the Web application that implements the Web Interface site, which defines the virtual path of that application on the Web server
  • Configuration  Identifies the object that holds the Web Interface site’s configuration and customization data on the Active Roles Administration Service

From the Web Interface page, you can open Web Interface sites in your Web browser: Click an entry in the list of Web Interface sites and then click Open in Browser on toolbar.

Create a Web Interface site

You can create a Web Interface site by clicking Create on the Web Interface page in the Configuration Center main window. The Create Web Interface Site wizard appears, prompting you to:

  • Choose the Web site to contain the Web application that implements the new Web Interface site
  • Supply the desired alias for that Web application. The alias defines the virtual path that becomes part of the Web Interface site’s address (URL).

Then, the wizard lets you specify the object to hold the configuration and customization data of the new Web Interface site on the Active Roles Administration Service. You can choose from the following options:

  • Create the object from a template

    The new site will have the default configuration and customization based on the template you select.

  • Use an existing object

    The new site will have the same configuration and customization as any existing Web Interface site that also uses the object you select. This option is intended for the scenario where you create an additional instance of one of your existing Web Interface sites on a different Web server.

  • Create the object by importing data from another object

    The new site will inherit the configuration and customization of the site that used the object you select for data import. This option is mainly intended for the upgrade scenario where you create Web Interface sites of the new Active Roles version that have the same configuration and customization as your Web Interface sites of an earlier Active Roles version. In this scenario, you import the configuration data of the earlier version to the Administration Service of the new version (which also imports the site configuration objects of the earlier version), and then create configuration objects for Web Interface sites of the new version by importing data from site configuration objects of the earlier version.

  • Create the object by importing data from an export file

    The new site will inherit the configuration and customization of the site whose configuration data was saved to the export file you specify. You can choose an export file of any supported Active Roles version.

For further information and step-by-step instructions, see the “Additional configuration” topic in the “Installing and configuring the Web Interface” section in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.

Modify a Web Interface site

From the Web Interface page in the Configuration Center main window, you can make changes to existing Web Interface sites: Click an entry in the list of sites and then click Modify on the toolbar. The Modify Web Interface Site wizard starts, allowing you to:

  • Choose the Web site to contain the Web application that implements the Web Interface site
  • Supply the desired alias for that Web application. The alias defines the virtual path that becomes part of the Web Interface site’s address (URL).

Then, the wizard lets you specify the object to hold the site’s configuration and customization data on the Active Roles Administration Service. You can choose from the following options:

  • Keep on using the current object (default option)

    The site’s configuration will remain intact. The wizard displays the name and version of the current configuration object.

  • Create the object from a template

    The site will have the default configuration and customization based on the template you select.

  • Use an existing object

    The site will have the same configuration and customization as any existing Web Interface site that also uses the object you select. You could use this option to deploy an additional instance of one of your existing Web Interface sites on a different Web server.

  • Create the object by importing data from another object

    The site will inherit the configuration and customization of the site that used the object you select for data import. You could use this option to deploy a Web Interface site of the new Active Roles version with the same configuration and customization as one of your Web Interface sites of an earlier Active Roles version. In this case, you import the configuration data of the earlier version to the Administration Service of the current version (which also imports the site configuration objects of the earlier version), and then create the site configuration object by importing data from the appropriate site configuration object of the earlier version.

  • Create the object by importing data from an export file

    The site will inherit the configuration and customization of the site whose configuration data was saved to the export file you specify. You can choose an export file of any supported Active Roles version.

For further information and step-by-step instructions, see the “Additional configuration” topic in the “Installing and configuring the Web Interface” section in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.

Delete a Web Interface site

On the Web Interface page in the Configuration Center main window, you can delete Web Interface sites: Click an entry in the list of sites and then click Delete on the toolbar. This operation only deletes the Web Interface site from the Web server, without deleting the site’s configuration object from the Administration Service.

When you delete a site, the site’s configuration object remains intact on the Administration Service. You can set up a Web Interface site with the same configuration as the site you have deleted, by choosing the option to use that object on the Configuration step in the wizard for creating or modifying Web Interface sites.
