PowerSearch: Overriding Standard Searches
Version: 8.6 and Above
Generally speaking, PowerSearch report configuration is maintained by NETcellent and delivered in EL860S.Cfg. Customers should never modify this file, as it is overlaid with the latest version from NETcellent whenever your software is updated.
Customer modifications to PowerSearch behavior are accomplished in EL860U.Cfg, which is never overlaid during an Elliott update.
For PowerSearch, here are the sections that can be adjusted:
- To change which reports are available and/or what their descriptions are, use the following sections:
This entry says that when ARCUSGEN is called, allow two options: the legacy program ARCUSGEN and the PowerSearch, ARCUSSCH. The user will be prompted to select the desired search.
This section allows you to specify or change the descriptions of PowerSearch searches.
- To limit which reports are available for your users, you may add the following entry to EL860U.Cfg, which tells Elliott to ignore the PowerSearch searches list in EL860S.Cfg and only make available the reports specified in EL860U.Cfg.
NOTE: You may need to contact NETcellent support if you need some assistance completing these entries.
