Advanced Settings (BB Learn LMS)

Advanced Settings allows you, the IntelliBoard Admin (main subscriber), to set up additional settings to your connection that will be applied for you and your Users.

Editing Advanced Settings

Most importantly, these settings will be applied for you and all your IB Users. To set them up follow the steps below:


  • From navigation menu go to Settings + Options > Servers > [Your connection]
  • From the connection page, click Advanced Settings
  • This page will show the following filters

1. Active Connection

This is the main check box that enables a connection in the IntelliBoard.

NOTE: This MUST be enabled to manipulate your data using reports, monitors, etc.

2. Debug Mode

Enable this box to turn on debugging on your IntelliBoard.

NOTE: This is useful for developers.

3. Auto-load reports

In BlackBoard, you have ability to load your reports Automatically or Manually.

If Auto-Load reports is enabled, your reports and monitors will be automatically loaded when any changes are done. E.g., if you change the Course in Course filter and click OK, the report will be automatically reloaded.

If Auto-Load reports is disabled, you will first need to select filters in the reports and monitors, and then manually load reports by clicking Apply.

4. Disable SSL verification

By checking this box you are disabling SSL certificates verification, which means that the connection will stop being encrypted. 

NOTE: We highly recommend to keep this box disabled (as defaulted) for the security safety and certificates verification. An SSL certificate is a type of digital certificate that provides authentication for a website and enables an encrypted connection. By ensuring that all data passed between the two parties remains private and secure, SSL encryption can help prevent hackers from stealing private information such as login credentials, personally identifiable information, addresses, etc. 

This option was created for clients that are located in China where certificates cannot be accessed by IntelliBoard due to firewall and security restrictions.

5. Course Filter Size

Select the size of the course filter in your reports. Whether it's a standard size or extended (to see more characters in the course titles), it's up to you! We recommend Extended for most Blackboard users. 

6. Course Filter Type

Select course filter type of the course filter in your reports. Hierarchy or complex filter - it's up to you! 

7. Course Filter Order

Want to see your course filter in Alphabetical order? We got you! This server setting allows course filter to display courses in Standard or Alphabetical order!

8. Course Filter Format

Select the format of the course filter in reports. This filter allows you to select how you want to see courses data inside IntelliBoard.  It can be filtered by Course Full name + Discipline, Course ID +Term, Course Unique ID + Discipline + Term and much more.
