On the Serialized Logistics application --> Settings tab, you can manage the application-level settings.

  • You can set the default business channel for the application (if applicable). This setting is overwritten by the business channel setting of the warehouse.
  • You can provide an external GS1 Digital Link Resolver server URL (if applicable). When an operator requests electronic content by scanning a GS1 Data Matrix barcode of a pack in the mobile application, the application connects to the external GS1 Digital Link Resolver server. The server will redirect the user to an external website for product information.
  • You can provide a Scandit license key to use matrix scanning in the installed version of the mobile application.
  • You can control the access to the Admin UI for users with the "User" role.


The settings are optional and are strongly connected to certain business use cases. If none of them is applicable to your use case, you can leave the Settings panel in the default state.


Note: To access this page, the "Administrator" role is required.

Controlling the Access for Users with the User Role


You can customize the access to the Serialized Logistics application in the Admin UI for each user that has the "User" role:

  • The access is controlled on a tab basis. The tabs are organized in a tree view with selectable checkboxes. Access to the tab can be turned on or off. The application offers a default setting.
  • When a user has access to a tab, this means full access to that tab, including its child tabs with one limitation. Partner invitation is not allowed for a user with the "User" role.
  • A tab can contain a parameter that takes values from a page to which the user does not have access. In this case, the application offers the available values for selection but the user cannot manipulate the source page.
  • You cannot give access to the Settings tab for a user with the "User" role.
