Default values and overriding values in the "User > User settings" module

Default values and overriding values in the User > User settings module

Properties from the list below are available the different prefixes setup.default and setup.override, and there is another prefix to hide single fields:

Properties

setup.default.[someProperty]

setup.default.[someProperty]
Type
any

This sets default values of the property. A user may override these using its User Settings module. This affects only new users who did not login yet. It is not usually not possible to set new defaults for users who already logged in at least once. The only way to apply new defaults to existing users is by Reset Backend User Preferences in the Admin tools > Maintenance section of the install tool.

setup.override.[someProperty]

setup.override.[someProperty]
Type
mixed

This forces values for the properties of the list below, a user can not override these setting in its User settings module. So, overriding values will be impossible for the user to change himself and no matter what the current value is, the overriding value will overrule it.

setup.fields.[fieldName].disabled

setup.fields.[fieldName].disabled
Type
boolean

On top of being able to set default values or override them, it is also possible to hide fields in the User Settings module, using setup.fields.[fieldName].disabled = 1. You can find the names of the fields in the Configuration module by browsing the "User Settings" array, example:

EXT:site_package/Configuration/user.tsconfig
# Do not show the 'emailMeAtLogin' field to the user in "User Settings" module
setup.fields.emailMeAtLogin.disabled = 1

# And force the value of this field to be set to 1
setup.override.emailMeAtLogin = 1
