Customise a Registry
In this article, we are going to go over how to customise a registry by changing the visual settings in the registry, like adding a custom logo or changing the colour of the header and footer, and also changing and editing registry settings in the registry, like changing the site name and enabling self sign-up options to the registry.
You must be an Administrator of the Registry or a Superuser to be able to access the Aristotle Cloud Dashboard and customise the Registry settings.
1. Go to "Aristotle Cloud Dashboard" on the side panel, it is located at the bottom.
2. Once in the Cloud Dashboard, select
3. You will be taken to the Cloud Settings Editor page, where you can customise different settings within the Registry.
4. These are the different visual settings you can change within the registry:
You can change the header and footer colour and add in links to the header or footer.
You can also add in a logo URL which will change the logo displayed in the registry in the header bar, see below:
5. Once done changing or editing the visual settings for the registry, don't forget to save at the bottom of the page.
From the Cloud Settings Editor page, you are able to change and edit registry settings as well. There are many settings you can change and edit, so we will run through them individually below.
1. General Registry settings
Here you can change the site name and site intro.
2. Metadata extensions, functionality extensions and separators
In the metadata extension settings, you can enable or disable metadata types within the registry.
Separators are where you can add in custom separators that appear in the metadata creator and editor for Data Elements and Data Element Concepts - these are used as the separators for those item types and encourages users to be consistent with creation guidelines for metadata.
3. Download modules
This is where you can enable or disable download types for downloading content in the system. You an also select the default page size for a PDF download, and add in a copyright statement if required.
4. Self signup options and allowed emails
From here you can enable or disable self signup options to the registry and add in allowed email extensions that are able to self signup to the registry. This is gone over in more detail in our Self sign-up options help page
5. Content security policies
Here you can set the security policies around what role in the registry has permissions to edit content once it is at a 'locked' state within the registry. To learn more about status levels and visibility of content within the registry, visit the Creating and managing registration authorities help page.
6. Once done changing or editing the registry settings, don't forget to save at the bottom of the page.
