Administration and Licensing

If your user has administrative rights, you’ll see a menu-item “Administration” in the main-toolbar on the upper right-hand side.

Click on that, to go to the administration-panel of Congether.

From here you can manage the identities (users), the common Congether preferences and your Congether license.


In the Identities-Administration, you’re able to create or edit new users which can access Congether. A user can only get activated and deactivated. Removing a user is not available at this point. 

To create a new user-identity, click on “Add new User”. To edit a specific user, click on the user you want to edit. 

Create/Edit a User

In the User-Edit dialog, you can set following parameters.


Set the user to be active or inactive. An inactive user can be activated again at any time. Is the user inactive, all authentication-requests by that user will be refused.


Type in the e-mail address for the individual user. This address will be used, to notify the user at several tasks.


If you create a new user, an initial password is required. Inform the user about the assigned password and to change it afterwards. 

If you’re editing a user, this field will be blank. If you type in a new password, the new password will be set while updating the user. 

Is Administrator

If this option is active, the user can access the administration-panel and is able to access all administrative tasks.


On the preferences-page, you’re able to configure different service-settings for Congether.


External URL

The external URL is used for e-mails and other events, where an URL to your Congether-service has to be generated. Please set this URL to the external address, where your Congether-service is running. For example “https://my-congether-service.mycomany.com”. 

E-Mail Settings (SMTP)

In this section you can configure the mail-server configuration, which Congether should use to send mails to other users.

Congether will send users mails at various events. Please fill out the SMTP-Server informations, which you want to use, when Congether sends an mail to your users.

SMTP-Server Address: Host to your SMTP-Server (e.g. smtp.mycomany.com)
SMTP-Port: Port to use for sending mails (mostly 25 for unsecured servers and 465 for servers, which are using SSL/TLS encryption).
Username: Optional user-name for the SMTP-Authentication
Password: Optional password for the SMTP-Authentication
Use SSL/TLS: Set, if a SSL/TLS encryption is used by your SMTP-server.
Mailer Address: The mail address, which is used to send the mails.
Mailer Name: The name, which should be displayed as sender.

E-Mail Notifications

In this section you can set at which events you want to receive an e-mail with detailed informations (e.g. new application created, etc.). Provide an correct e-mail address and select the events, you want to receive as an mail.


At the license-page you can inspect your current and upload your purchased Congether-license. 

In the upper segment you can review your current licensed product including the expiration-date, support-voucher and other purchase- and license-details.

The lower segment is used to upload a new license-file. After you purchased Congether from our website or through our partners, you’ll receive a license-file (.stlic-file). You can simply select this file here and upload it. Congether will validate your file and apply the new license.


In the service-administration you can add external services, which can receive WebHook-calls from Congether at specific events. For more informations, visit the service-documentation.
