Other Settings

Administrative options that do not fall into any of the previous categories are found in the "Other" category.

The following Other Settings are available:

Excel Export Target

Choose the type of Excel export you would like. Choosing 2003 will automatically split the workbook into multiple worksheets when Excel’s row limit is reached.

Note: Linux does not support setting the Excel export target to 2003.

External Interface

Provide a Web Service URL or .NET Assembly to interface with the external module. For more information see External Modules.

Enable Paging In the Report Viewer

Controls when data for Report Viewer output is sent to the client. Set to 'True' to send data as each page is requested.

Note: This will cause multiple hits to the server.
Note: If this is set to 'False', it restricts the interactive HTML hide/show column option in the Report Viewer.

Set to 'False' to send all the data to the client browser at once.

Renew Session Automatically

This setting is used to bypass the session timeout property set in web.config. Set to 'True' to send a server side AJAX callback every two minutes to keep the session from expiring.

Note: This will only work if the timeout period set in web.config is greater than two minutes.

Write Log File

(v2017.2+) Set the level of detail logged in the Exago log file. See Application Logging for information about the different log levels. This setting will be overridden by a log4net.config file.

(pre-v2017.2) Set to 'True' to write a log file for debugging purposes. For more information see Reading the Log File.

Enable Debugging

Set to 'True' to enable debugging. For more information see Manually Creating a Debug Package.

Max Report Execution Time

(v2016.2.12+) Specify how long reports should run before timing out. Default is 240 minutes (4 hours).

Maximum Age for Temp Files

Determines the maximum number of minutes a temp file can exist before Exago’s automatic cleanup of temp files will remove it.

Important: Understand that setting the maximum age too low may cause an error, as users might spend some time viewing a report executed in HTML, which uses AJAX to read temp paging files.

The default value is 1440 minutes (1 day). The minimum this value can be set to is 30 minutes.

Enable Web Service/Assembly Data Mapping

Allows Web Service and .NET Assembly methods to replace Data Field names.

Limit Report to One Category

Limits reports to Data Objects within a single category. Set to 'True' to enable this behavior.

Cache External Services

Caches external Web Services and .NET Assemblies. Setting to 'False' may reduce performance due to loading/unloading of services.

Global Schema Access Type

Specifies whether to query the Data Source for an object’s schema or to read it from Column Metadata. See Retrieving Data Object Schemas for more information.

Allow Multiple Sessions

Allows multiple sessions of Exago per user. Set to 'True' to enable this behavior.

Allow MD5 Hashing on FIPS Server (v2016.3+)

Allows a FIPS-complaint server to encrypt PDF files by using an alternate MD5 library to the built-in System.Cryptography.

Write BOM to CSV Files (v2019.1.1+)

Attaches a Byte Order Mark (BOM), an optional abstract character used to declare and recognize Unicode encoding of a text file, to the beginning of CSV file exports. Set to True to enable.

‘LoadImage’ Cell Function Parameter Prefix

A string that is prepended to the LoadImage Function when the report is run. This setting allows an administrator to hide the report path of images on your server. This field is ignored for images loaded from a database.

Ignore Inaccessible Report Folders

If 'False', Exago throws an error message if a folder has an accessibility issue. Set to 'True' to ignore the error and hide the inaccessible folder.

User ID

Sets the User Id necessary to gain access to the Administration Console and REST API. Leave blank to permit unverified access to the Administration Console.


Used in conjunction with User ID to gain access to the Administration Console and REST API.

Confirm Password

Used to confirm the value of “Password.”

Debug Password

A password that enables clients to send a debug package directly to Exago Inc. Leave blank to disable Debug Extraction. When set to 'True', correct permissions must be set on the ./Debug Folder. For me details see Submitting a Debug Package.

Exago Expiration Date

A date when users will no longer be able to access Exago.

Custom Code Supplied by Exago

Used for custom functionality.

License Key

Used to activate purchased add-on Exago features.
