System administrators can use the Scholantis Settings to easily configure a number of common web application settings without editing configuration settings or files. The appropriate configuration changes are made to all servers in your SharePoint farm.

Open Scholantis Web Applications Settings

  • Open SharePoint Central Administration and navigate to Manage web applications page found under the Application Management category.
  • On the Manage web applications page select the web application you wish to configure and then select Scholantis Settings.
  • The Scholantis Web Application Settings window allows you to modify various settings for each web application on your SharePoint farm.
  • Use the settings to modify your web application settings and press OK to apply. 

Applying settings will briefly interrupt the availability of the selected web application. A number of changes are made to the IIS web.config file which resets the application pool for the selected web application. This will cause a brief service interruption which typically lasts a few seconds.


Configuration Options

While the configuration settings should work correctly on any SharePoint web application we cannot guarantee compatibility with non-Scholantis web applications.

Scholantis Configuration

Use Auto Multi Login

When the Scholantis Mutli Login Installation feature is active, automatically bypass the multiple login option to the federated authentication prompt.

Warm Up Sites

When the Scholantis Farm Warm Up farm feature is active it connects to every site collection and sub-site in the web application to force pre-compilation and caching. By default the IIS application pools for any SharePoint web application is reset every night, so this greatly reduces the initial loading for users visiting a web application or site for the first time. You can also limit the warm up service to specific web servers such as Web Front Ends. The warm up job is limited to a maximum run time of 3 hrs.

SharePoint Configuration

Administrators should consider the implications for storage, performance and denial of service when modifying these values.
