Creating a User Control List

You can control which users can login to ContentStore by creating a user access control list on the Proxy Server for ContentStore client. Only the users that you include in the list will be able to log in to ContentStore and access their emails from the ContentStore Email Viewer.

Before You Begin

You must deploy the proxy server for ContentStore in your CommCell environment.


  1. Log in to the client where the proxy server for ContentStore is deployed.
  2. Create a new text file and enter a list of the users who should have access to ContentStore. Enter each user on a separate line as domain\username.

    For example:


    Note: If you do not include a user in the list, then that user cannot access messages from ContentStore Email Viewer.

  3. Save the text file to a location on the client. You can give the text file any name.

    Tip: Remember the path to the text file because you will need to enter it later.

  4. In the file system, open the Commvault software installation directory, and then open ContentStore/CVProxyService.
  5. Open ProxySettings.xml using a text editor.
  6. Before the closing </appSettings> element, add the following:

    <add key="USER_LIST" value="path to user list text file" />

    For example:

    If you saved the user list file to E:\files\contentStoreUserList.txt, enter the following element:

    <add key="USER_LIST" value="E:\files\contentStoreUserList.txt" />

  7. Save your changes to ProxySettings.xml.
  8. Restart the Internet Information Services (IIS).
