Episerver CMS iconAdministration interface

Note:   This topic is intended for administrators and developers with administration access rights in Episerver.

Depending on which parts of the Episerver platform are implemented, you have various administration options in the user interface. The options in this topic apply to a standard installation of Episerver and related products; a customized site might have additional administration options.

Administration view

The admin view in CMS contains core administration features for the Episerver platform where you manage access rights, website languages, and scheduled jobs. You also manage the export and import of data between websites, and configure new websites in a multi-site solution.

Visitor groups

Visitor groups are used by the personalization feature, and are managed from the Visitor Groups option in the global menu. You need administration access rights to manage visitor groups.


Note:   It is recommended to install add-ons via Visual Studio and NuGet packages. For more information, see Episerver World.

The add-on system keeps track of system dependencies and lists installed and available add-ons and updates. You can also manually upload unlisted add-ons to the website.

The following views are available:

  • Installed lists installed add-ons. When an update is available a notification appears. Click the header columns to sort the list of available add-ons.
  • Episerver Add-ons, Episerver Beta and Third-Party Add-ons list available add-ons from Episerver or third-party providers.
  • Updates lists available upgrades for your website, based on products and system versions installed in your environment.
