Deliver customized configuration file to user

Follow

If you want to deliver Password Depot to the users in your team, you have the possibility to adjust the default values for the program options. To do this, start Password Depot (Client) and set the options as you want them to be passed on to the users. Then quit the program and open the Windows Explorer.

Go to the directory C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\AceBIT\Password Depot <VERSION>.

Here you will find the file pwdepot.cfg, which contains the program options that you have just set in the program. You can open and edit this file with a text editor. This is an XML file and the identifiers should usually be self-explanatory. You can now optionally delete entries that you do not want to pass on.

To pass the customized cfg file to the users, it must be located in the user's program directory, i.e. together with PasswordDepot.exe.

At the first program start Password Depot takes over the options from this cfg file instead of the factory-set options.

Example of an individual configuration file in which you want to specify a server for your users:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Configuration>
  <TfrmServerLogin>
    <Server>localhost</Server>
    <PortNumber>25012</PortNumber>
    <Login>Heinz Mustermann</Login>
  </TfrmServerLogin>
</Configuration>

Note: If you want to make further settings for the behavior of the client, you can use the Server Manager from version 11 onwards to use the new security policies.
