Custom Query Options

Always hide Custom Query EditArea

This setting allows to override the hiding policy of the EditArea so that it is always hidden.

Prevent Non-Admin Users from viewing Custom Queries

(FULL version only) When using parameterized queries, a common requirement is not to display the EditArea when a Non-Admin users enter the Custom Query Mode. This can be done by setting this option.

Note the difference between this option and the previous:
When "Always hide Custom Query EditArea" is set, EditArea is initially hidden but can be shown by clicking the Custom Query EditArea link.
When "Prevent Non-Admin Users from viewing Custom Queries" is set, EditArea and the Custom Query EditArea link are never displayed to the Non-Admin users.

Number of columns in Parameter Panel

(FULL version only) The number of columns in which the parameters are displayed can be selected from this dropdown (from 1 to 5).

User Specific

Disable Custom Query Mode for the following Users/Roles

Custom Query Mode can be disabled for selected Roles. Also selected users can be prevented to access it, with the following rule:
Custom Query Mode is disabled to a user if it is disabled directly to him OR to its role.

New-inline.png Such a behavior may be reverted by selecting "Enable" in the Dropdown field at the beginning of the option: in this case Custom Query Mode is enabled to a user only if he or its role is selected.

Disable Additional Search for the following Users/Roles

Rules similar to the above also apply to Additional Search Fields
