Customize Help and Support links

In this tutorial you will learn how to customize the Help and Support links in Adaxes Web interface. The links are located in the footer of the Web interface.

By default, the Help link is disabled and not visible. The Support link is visible and points to the default Support page. You can configure the links to point to your local help and support pages or change the purpose of the links.

  1. Open Adaxes Web interface configurator.

    • On the computer where Web interface configurator is installed, open Windows Start menu.

    • Click Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    To configure the Web interface, you need to have the appropriate permissions.


    The permissions to configure the Web interface are delegated via security roles. By default, only service administrators have the appropriate permissions. To enable other users to configure the Web interface, grant them the corresponding permissions.

    To create a security role that grants the permissions to configure Web interface:

    • In Adaxes Administration console, right-click your Adaxes service, point to New and click Security Role.

    • Enter a name for the new security role and click Next.

    • On the Permissions step, click the down arrow embedded into the Add button and click Configure Web Interface.

    • Click Next and follow the steps in the wizard.

  2. In the top left corner, select the Web interface you want to customize.

  3. In the left navigation menu, click Footer.

  4. In the Help and Support links section, activate the Help or Support tab, depending on the link you want to customize.

    If you want to hide the link from the Web interface, clear the Display the Help link or Display the Support link checkboxes.


    In the Text field, change the text of the link.


    In the URL field, specify the URL of the link.

    To create an e-mail link, enter mailto: followed by the e-mail address in the URL field.

  5. Save the changes.

    The settings in a section can be applied to other Web interface types. For this purpose, in the top right corner of the section, click the down arrow button and click Apply to other Web interfaces.
