Configure Various Features via Platform Settings

The platform settings allow you to activate or configure selected features on the GoodData platform that are currently not universally available (for example, enable Analytical Designer). Use the platform settings to test if a feature works in your particular platform environment. If you are not happy with the results, you can easily revert to your original setting.

Some features may not be available for all GoodData plans.

Change only the settings that are documented in this section. Other settings can be removed or may stop working at any time without warning.

Only carry out these actions if you are sure of what you are doing. Otherwise, contact GoodData Support.

For more information on the GoodData terminology, see GoodData Glossary.

Hierarchical Levels of Applying Platform Settings

In GoodData, terms workspace and project denote the same entity. For example, project ID is exactly the same as workspace ID. The term 'project' remains in use primarily at the back-end of the platform to ensure compatibility with API-driven applications. For more information, see Find the Workspace ID.

When you configure the platform settings, the activated features are applied in your environment hierarchically in the following order:

domain -> project group -> workspace

For example, settings configured at the domain level are inherited by the project groups (that is, by all the workspaces that have the same authorization token, see Find the Workspace Authorization Token) and the workspaces under this domain. Settings configured at the project group level are inherited only by the underlying workspaces (including those that may be created using the same authorization token in the future).

  • If you have a domain (both white-labeled and not white-labeled), you can configure the platform settings for the domain, a project group, or a specific workspace.
  • If you do not have a domain, you can configure the platform settings only for a specific workspace. To configure the platform settings for a project group, contact GoodData Support.

You cannot configure the platform settings for an individual user.

Configure a Platform Setting

For the list of the available platform settings to configure, their names and available values including the defaults, see Available Platform Settings.

  • To configure a platform setting for a workspace, you must be a workspace admin and know the workspace ID (see Find the Workspace ID).
  • To configure a platform setting for a project group or a domain, you must be a domain admin.

Steps:

  1. Go to the gray page for configuring the platform settings.
    • For a specific workspace:

       https://{your.domain.com}/gdc/projects/{workspace_id}/config/
    • For a project group:

       https://{your.domain.com}/gdc/projectGroups/{authorization_token}/config/
    • For a domain:

       https://{your.domain.com}/gdc/domains/{domain_name}/config
    The page with the current platform settings opens.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to the Config section, and fill in the fields:
    • In the Key field, enter the name of the platform setting.
    • In the Value field, enter the value to set the platform setting to.
    For the list of the available platform settings to configure, their names and available values including the defaults, see Available Platform Settings.
  3. Click Create config.
    The platform setting is configured. The page with the details of the newly configured setting opens.
  4. Log in to the GoodData Portal, and check that the feature associated with the configured platform setting functions correctly.

Switch a Platform Setting to Its Default

For the list of the available platform settings to configure, their names and available values including the defaults, see Available Platform Settings.

  • To set a platform setting to its default in a workspace, you must be a workspace admin and know the workspace ID (see Find the Workspace ID).
  • To configure a platform setting for a project group or a domain, you must be a domain admin.

Steps:

  1. Go to the gray page for configuring the platform settings.
    • For a specific workspace:

       https://{your.domain.com}/gdc/projects/{workspace_id}/config/
    • For a project group:

       https://{your.domain.com}/gdc/projectGroups/{authorization_token}/config/
    • For a domain:

       https://{your.domain.com}/gdc/domains/{domain_name}/config
    The page with the current platform settings opens.
  2. Locate the platform setting that you want to switch back to its default, and click its self link.
    The page with the setting details opens. The current value of the platform setting is displayed in the Value field.
  3. Click Delete config.
    The page with the current platform settings opens. The updated setting is now set to its default value.
  4. Log in to the GoodData Portal, and check that the feature associated with the configured platform setting functions correctly.
