Introduction to eXo Platform

Configure your platform step by step

Step 1. Brand you platform

You can change the platform’s branding in Administration/General settings: change your logo, apply your colors, choose your flavicon and your login image.


Step 2. Set-up your home page

By default, the homepage holds a simple uniframe that redirects to a public webpage – Compose the page to your liking, using the administration icon on the top right of the screen.


Step 3. Configure your news targets

Set-up news targets in Administration/News targets menu. For starters, create one new target, authorized for admin users.


Step 4. Create your spaces

Start by creating a communications space. Create some articles and publish them on your home page, open to all users.
Then create more initial spaces for your users depending on your goals.


Step 5. Provision your users

There are many ways to invite users in the platform. You can use Administration/Users to import a csv, invite them by email or create them directly. It is also possible to connect your LDAP and import users that way. Use groups, roles and each objects settings to configure their rights and memberships.
