Customer ID is used by Reindex to define the customer in their database. It can be anything.
Tag: Is used to separate instances from one another. This is the tag referred to in ReIndex's documentation
Mail Domain: Is used to send information back to users. Mail Alias : If Mail Alias is not used, UMS will by default use username.
What happens after the configurations are done ?
When configurations are done in backend and frontend environments, inLogic is responsible for communicate technical details to Reindex. As soon as Reindex have implemented the technical details, teachers and students will have access to Reindex through UMS.
