Access Unlisted Lists

This field allows you to access confidential lists that are not listed in the archive index. Simply type the name of the list in the text box and click "Search". Note that this field will also work for non-confidential lists.

The "Confidential" list configuration keyword determines whether the list should be hidden from the archive index or not. "Confidential= No" is the default value and indicates that the list is not confidential. "Confidential=Service" indicates that the list is to be hidden from users who are not in the list's service area (see "Service=" keyword for more details) but not from other users. "Confidential= Yes" means that the list is unconditionally confidential.

Lists per Page

This parameter controls how many lists will be displayed on a single page. The default is 50. If you want to break the list table into pages of 10 lists, type "10" in the box and click "Update".
