There are many ways to make COmanage Registry your own. The following features provide personalization for your COmanage users in the way that they see and interact with the software.


Even if you love the default COmanage Registry interface, you may want to make changes in how it looks, perhaps to match the look and feel of your organization’s website. Through Style Sheets (CSS), you have significant flexibility over which components of the user interface are displayed to your users and how they look.


Registry v3.2.0 introduces Dashboards, simple information portals. Information is provided by Dashboard Widgets, which are implemented as Dashboard Widget Plugins. Multiple Dashboards can be defined within a CO. Dashboards include header and footer text areas appropriate for providing arbitrary html content on the landing page of a CO.

Email Message Templates

COmanage Registry provides the concept of Message Templates. These formatted emails allow for notifications and messages to be specified once and reused in multiple instances within a supported context. Message Templates can use substitution codes to enable email personalization and the inclusion of other important information. Both plain text and HTML versions are supported.


COmanage Registry can be localized to allow for a full translation of the interface, for example, to display it in a different language. In addition, it provides the ability to change specific text within a CO, for example, to change a label so that it uses language that is common for your CO.

CO Navigation Links

Registry allows for the creation of custom navigation links that can persist across the entire platform or just for a specific CO. These can be used to create links back to your organization or as a custom, static menu for Registry itself.


Registry v4.0.0 introduces Dictionaries, which are basically customizable lists that can be used in various contexts, such as Attribute Enumerations and Identifier Validation. The semantics of using a Dictionary varies according to the context in which it is used. 

Attribute Enumerations

As of v2.0.0, Registry supports Attribute Enumerations, which allow the possible values of free-form fields to be constrained to a selection of pre-determined values.

Self-service Permissions

COmanage Registry allows certain attributes to be managed by users directly, via the Identity menu accessible from the top menu bar (the gear icon with the user's name). This feature is called "Self-service Permissions".
