Configuration settings

The Episerver Find integration comes with a shell module that adds a new top level menu item to the Episerver Online Center view. The shell module has three main views:

In order for the shell module to be visible, it needs to be configured. The configuration settings are described below.

Configuration settings

To configure Episerver Find to work with CMS, add a new element to the episerver.shell element in web.config. To configure the general Episerver module along with the CMS specific UI components, add the below element to the protectedModules element.

XML
<add name="Find">
  <assemblies>
    <add assembly="EPiServer.Find.Framework" />
    <add assembly="EPiServer.Find.Cms" />
  </assemblies>
</add>

After doing this, the complete episerver.shell element in web.config should look something like this:

XML
<episerver.shell>
  <publicModules rootPath="~/modules/" autoDiscovery="Minimal" />
  <protectedModules rootPath="~/epiui/">
    <add name="Find">
      <assemblies>
        <add assembly="EPiServer.Find.Framework" />
        <add assembly="EPiServer.Find.Cms" />
      </assemblies>
    </add>
    <add name="Shell" />
    <add name="CMS" />
  </protectedModules>
</episerver.shell>

Access rights

Access to shell module views is restricted to users in one of three groups:

  • WebAdmins
  • Administrators
  • SearchAdmins

Note: The first two groups have Admin view access in Episerver CMS, and they will also have access to shell module views by default. To grant users without administrator access, create the SearchAdmins group for the membership and role provider you are using, and add those users to it.

Supported browsers

As the shell module relies heavily on CSS 3, only modern browsers are supported. See the system requirements for Episerver Find.
