The Configuration app allows you to configure the Magnolia Web application, its modules and its apps. It displays the content of the config workspace in a tree and list view. Here you find configuration nodes that influence how the application behaves. The Configuration app is also used to define sites, templates, dialogs and everything else. The app is accessible at Manage > Configuration.


The Configuration app is installed by the UI Admincentral module. The app is based on the content app framework so its configuration is typical of any content app, except that there is only a single subapp, browser. Permission to access the app is limited to users assigned the superuser role. The app is configured at Configuration > /modules/ui-admincentral/apps/configuration.

Node name






The Configuration app operates on the config workspace.

Node types
