Managing Contexts

In MapStore the Application Context Manager is an administrative tool designed to build and configure MapStore's viewers: the administrator is able to configure a custom MapStore viewer by choosing:

  • The name of the context (the viewer will have its own specific URL)
  • The default map configuration and map contents (like layers, backgrounds, catalogs, CRSs etc)
  • The set of plugins available for the viewer

The Admin can access the Application Context Manager through the button available in the Manager option menu in Homepage.

In this page the administrator can:

  • Perform a search among the existing contexts

In each context's card the administrator can:

  • Remove the context through the Delete button

  • Edit the context through the Edit context button

  • Open the Edit properties through the Edit properties button

  • Sharing the context through the Share button
