admin general




[angled-project] : Visualisation profiles

In the section admin/angled/profile/ you can configure viusalisation profiles.
Those profiles are used to filter and organize the information displayed to users in [angled-project] app.

nb : it is only related to data visualization, not data access control, and all profiles are available to use by anyone.

It is possible to display two types of informations :

Views are specific visualisation widgets.

Layout system

The layout system uses the following components :

Exemples :

Boxes can contain other boxes, UIs or views.

illustration Layout principle exemple with empty boxes

It is usually a good practice to start the design of a new profile on paper.


Options can be used to customise the output of a IU or view, they are declared using key=value

Exemple :


ex : unit note title="another_title" will override the default title of the IU “note”.


usecase : show the IU in write mode but not in read mode. Usefull in combination with a view element, so you encode the datas, but only display the computed view.


Will add an extra css class on the IU.
This allows to invoke special style on the IU.



It is possible to filter the content of a IU based on the Terms it uses.

The filter can be used this way : filter="field_name/term_ID"
Separators can be / or . or =.

Exemple : unit note filter="type/315" will display only the note content related to the Term ID 51 (which is “source/bron” ).

Since it is possible to display multiple times the same IUs in profiles, it this bring a bit of complexity, but gives the administrators a great flexibility to create highly customized profiles.


To display all values except one, it is possible to exclude a specific value by using exclude="field_name/term_ID"

Exemple : unit note exclude="type/314" will display all notes except the one related to the initial import (tagged with term 314).

[angled-project] : Audience

Audience are created to restrict the visibility of the information to specifics users.

It is defined by informations authors in angled-project app, and used everywhere angled-project datas are used, such as in the angled-query app or in the maps showing project datas.

When visualizing a project in angled-project, users without the right Audience permissions will be nonetheless advertised that there is an information, that they are not allowed to see.

Create a new Audience

To create a new Audience, visit the section /admin/angled/audience/.

To add one, just give it name, a description, and attach it to a group.

The users part of that group will then be part that Audience.

[angled-project] : Domain field mapping

To limit the number of domains displayed in a list, it is possible to map a domain to a unit field in admin/angled/domainfieldmapping/
