The Control Panel is a central administration point for dmBridge. For the most part, it is a web-based front-end to the dm/data/config.xml file. It also enables point-and-click moderation of social data, among other things. It could be thought of as the dmBridge equivalent of the CONTENTdm® administration module. It supplements, but does not replace it.

[Note]Note

The Control Panel does not regularly receive testing in Internet Explorer and has been known to have issues in IE in the past. Whether this remains the case is unknown. If you have problems with the Control Panel in IE, please try another browser.

The Control Panel is accessible at the following URL:

http://my_cdm_server/dm/admin

By default, dmBridge uses the CONTENTdm® authentication system, so only users who are able to log into the CONTENTdm® administration module are able to log into the Control Panel. To change this, see Chapter 9, User authentication.

Basic Setup

This very simple section enables customization of the institution name. The institution name is output in Atom feeds, the HTTP API, and, potentially, other places.
