Custom Manager Page

To use the component, navigate to your manager and click on "Extras > CrossContextsSettings".

You could create a new context setting in several contexts with a click on the Create New Setting button on the top left above the contexts settings grid.

The grid could be filtered by the namespace, the area and with a search input on the top right above the cronjob grid.

Each context setting can be edited inline with a double click on the text of the setting.


The context setting create window has a variety of options that can be set.

You could set the setting key, the setting name, the setting description, the setting field type, the setting namespace and the setting area. The fields in that window are the same as in the default context setting create/edit window.

The values of each context setting can be filled below those fields in a (sometimes scrollable) section. Each possible context setting is listed there with Value (context name):

Clear Cache

The clear cache tab allows you to clear any context cache manually.
