Global Statistics

Advanced-UI NOVA-UI

The "Global Statistics" plugin provides an overview of all assets as well as the storage and license usage. Different users can be allocated different storages to track the consumption individually.

If you use individual (userId-based) properties, you'll want to run the Globalstatistics task after installing in order to update the usage cache. It recalculates the storage sizes for set users. Usually, this task runs at midnight.


To be configured in {home}/appserver/conf/


type: String, required: yes, default: -

License key (delivered by brix IT Solutions)


type: boolean, required: no, default: false

This property has to be set to true to enable the global statistic plugin, otherwise the submenu-entry will not appear.


type: long, required: no, default: -

The available storage size (in GB) can be set individually for different users. Only the users who have a configuration like this can see the plugin. This does not apply to Superusers, who always see the plugin.


type: long, required: no, default: -

Total storage size in GB. If this property is set, superusers can see the storage usage percentage.


type: boolean, required: no, default: false

If set, total size of assets and storage size is calculated in binary data size unit ("B", "KiB", "MiB", "GiB", "TiB"). Otherwise, the decimal calculation is applied ("B", "KB", "MB", "GB", "TB" ).


type: time (seconds minutes hours days months years, separated with "space") ,required: no, default: 0 0 * ?

The sizes for the users who have been configured are determined on the times set in this property. As a result, the statistics display appears faster when it's called. On the other hand, the data will not be quite up-to-date.


type: double, required: no, default: 0.9

If a storage size has been set, the corresponding user is notified with an E-Mail if the percentage (set in this property) of the size is used.


type: string, required: no, default: -

If this property is set percentage is ignored and mails are only sent when the storage size is less than the given threshold. The threshold can have the following units: B, KB, MB, GB, TB, PB, EB, ZB, KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB, PiB, EiB, ZiB. If no unit is specified GiB or GB is assumed depending on the binaryUnits property. E.g. "200 GB" or "0.2 TB".


type: int, required: no, default: 7

After as many days as stated in this property, the user will get a new E-Mail, if the used storage percentage is still above the limit.


type: string, required: no, default: -

Link to the Support Overview


type: string, required: no, default: -

Link to the Support Overview, if different users need to see different links. Superusers will see globalStatistic.supportlink.default


type: string, required: no, default: -

This property defines an email address to send the information about low disk space and license violation (amount of users)


type: boolean, required: no, default: true

If this property is set to false, no emails will be sent from the plugin.


type: int, required: no, default: 1

The number set in this property will be subtracted from the total amount of powerusers.


type: string, required: no, default: -

Instead of using the actual name of the node type, you can instead configure an arbitrary message bundle key, where {name} will be replaced by the name="folder" property of that node type. Known values are:

  • containerType.{name}
  • containerType.{name}s
  • maintab.{name}title

type: NodeTypeId, required: no, default: -, since: 3.0.9

If set, assets in the trashbin that have no assettype are not included in the total of assets without assettype.


type: boolean, required: no, default: true, since: 3.0.14 (6.4: 3.0.13)

If set to false, storage information are not calculated and not shown in the Dashboard.

Properties for Node-Informations

Since version 2.0, information about the selected node are shown in the sidebar.


type: list of string (comma separated), required: yes, default: node_generalinfo,node_metadatainfo,node_pinoverview

The nodeInformationSection needs to be added to the list of sidebar content in this property. They will be displayed in the provided order. guiPlugin.sidebar.nodeContent=node_generalinfo,node_metadatainfo,node_pinoverview,nodeInformationSection


type: list of long (comma separated), required: no, default: -

This property takes a list of group-ids which can see the information in the sidebar. If this property isn't set, all users can see the information.


type: list of long (comma separated) , required: no, default: -

This property takes a list of comma separated ids for nodetypes where the sidebar info should appear. If this property isn't set, the information will be shown on all nodetypes.

Node Informations


If the main window shows an error like:

Error: /jsp/globalStatistic.jsp (line: x, column: y) attribute value for [test] is not properly terminated

... then your Tomcat is too old (this is a known issue in older releases, but was fixed in 7.0.66, 8.0.30 and 9.0.0.M2 onwards). In that case, you need to update your Tomcat to the latest supported version.
