The About Magnolia app displays installation and configuration information about the current instance. You can report JIRA issues directly from the app.


The About Magnolia app is based on the small app concept. The Tools app group that this app belongs to is only available to the superuser role. This is configured in the app launcher layout. The app is configured at Configuration > /modules/about-app/apps/about.
