The Cryptshare for OWA add-in Settings allow a user to change the preferred language and to setup a different server URL than the pre-configured URL. Furthermore it is possible to get the Client ID in order to activate remote logging for support purposes. To access the add-in settings, open the add-in in your browser.

Cryptshare Server URL

The Cryptshare Server URL for the add-in can be changed if the add-in resources are hosted elsewhere. The URL can be changed under Settings → User Settings.

  • The given URL must start with https://
  • The URL must point to a Cryptshare Server hosting Cryptshare for OWA add-in resources.

Language Settings

On first startup the language used in the add-in will be set to your default browser language, if the language packages are available. The language can be changed separately from the language settings configured in OWA. This setting is located under Settings → User Settings.

Language Packages reside on server-side
Please note, that in order to be able to switch between language packages, these must be installed on server-side first. For instructions on how to install new language packages please refer to Installing Language Packages in the server manual.


Remote Logging

Please go to 'Error Analysis, Support & Logging' for details about the Remote Logging Feature.

Storage Location for Settings


As the purpose for specific settings is different as on the one hand it is relevant for the specific user and on the other hand is relevant for the specific client, the Cryptshare for OWA add-in stores its settings in two different places, depending on that purpose.

Settings stored in the browser

The following settings are stored in the application storage of the browser and therefore are not persistent between different browsers:

  • Language Selection
  • Acceptance-State for the Terms of Use
  • Client ID

Settings stored for the OWA Account

The following settings are stored in the so called roaming settings of an account and are therefore persistent between browsers and systems where OWA can be executed:

  • URL of the Cryptshare Server
  • Maximum attachment size
