System Settings

You can change the System settings in the IT Management Console. Navigate to Global SettingsSystem Settings to view and edit the available settings.

You can edit the following system and e-mail settings:

System settings

Description

Application server

The URL that is used for internal communication with the Application Server. The URL and its port are set during installation and cannot be changed.

Default page size

The default number of rows that is fetched when no page size is specified by the Application Server.

You can leave this at its default value of 30.

Max page size

The maximum number of rows that is fetched when no page size is specified by the Application Server.

You cannot change this setting.

Session timeout [minutes]

The maximum number of minutes a user can remain logged in, while not being active. Users will be asked to login again when this time expires.

Session history [minutes]

The session history of an expired session will be saved during the specified number of minutes. After this time, the session history of an expired session will be deleted.

Poll Model server [seconds]

The interval between automatic checks for the status of the Model Server by the Application Server.

Model server timeout [seconds]

The number of seconds before a timeout occurs when the status of the Model Server has been requested by the Application Server.

Model Server metadata timeout [seconds]

The number of seconds before a timeout occurs during retrieval of Model Server metadata by the Application Server.

Max domain size for search

This setting is related to fields of type 'set' in the field chooser and determines how many elements (enumerated values) are retrieved when executing an Angle. Use this setting to prevent the system from overloading, as many elements can exist in a domain (field).

Cache validity

The default time in minutes during which cached items remain valid. After this time, cached items will be removed from cache and will have to be loaded again.

Minimum number of label categories required to publish Angle

Publishing an Angle or Dashboard is only allowed if the assigned privilege labels originate from at least this number of label categories. The minimum is 1, because the default label category Business Process is mandatory.

Example: If you set the number of label categories to 2, users must assign at least 2 labels, and these labels must be in 2 different label categories.

Check expired sessions [minutes]

The number of minutes after which the system will check if there are any inactive sessions.

Example: If you set this setting to 2 minutes and the 'Session timeout' to 5 minutes, the system will check every 2 minutes if a session has been inactive for more than 5 minutes.

Instances to keep per model

The number of model instances that are kept in the database (as history). When this number of instances is reached, the import of a new instance will cause the instance with the oldest modeldata_timestamp to be automatically deleted. The minimum value is 1.

Scheduling Time Zones

The time zone set by the user. When you update your time zone in this field, the timings set for all scheduled tasks are updated to your time zone. By default, all tasks are scheduled based on UTC, that is, GMT.

For example, if a task is scheduled at 13:00, it will be run at 1300 UTC by default. Now, if you update the Scheduling Time Zone to IST, the task will be run at 13:00 IST. Note that the time does not get adjusted to the updated time zone. So, 13:00 UTC is not changed to 18:30 IST.

​In the task page, by default, the time will be displayed as follows: ​GMT​​[​your time zone​​]

So, if your system is set to IST, the time displayed by default is: 13:00[18:30] ​

If you update the Scheduling Time Zone field to IST, the time will be displayed as IST only. ​ If you are in a region that follows Daylight Savings Time (DST), the Scheduling time zone will automatically get updated based on DST changes.

Active Directory size limit

The maximum number of users or user groups that are returned when querying an authentication provider. The number of users may be very large. Therefore, use this setting to limit the number of users requested per query to keep the load under control. The value may not exceed 999.

Include Self in export headers

Check this field to include 'Self' in the export headers. This setting is valid for both Export to Excel and Export to CSV, manually from the Web Client and automatically using an Automation Task.

The following table shows the Angle Export settings.

Angle Exports

Description

Enable Grouping in Pivot exports

When enabled, additional data groups are exported to support grouping in Excel.

When disabled, grouping in the export of pivots to Excel is not supported. The result is an output document with a pivot without the extra fields that are needed for grouping.

Default maximum export page size

The maximum page size used when exporting to Excel or CSV. The value may not exceed 999999.

Program/scripts folder

The location of the folder for program/script files for use in Automation Tasks. Any file in this folder of type .cmd, .exe, .ps1 and .bat will become available in the dropdown list when setting up an Action of type Program/script.

Note:

The specified location must be a full file path on the Application Server.

Fallback export field length

The fallback field length for text fields in SQL Server.

This value is used during Metadata import and Data export to SQL Server.

The default value is 255.

Default approval state Automation task actions

The default Approval state of newly added Actions in Automation tasks.

Default value: Requested

Actions can only be executed when the Approval state is "approved". The manage_system privilege is required to change the Approval state of an Action.

Number of tasks to run in parallel

While running Angle export tasks, there is a high chance of system overload. To avoid that, you can specify the number of tasks that can be run in parallel, based on the capacity of the server.

By specifying a number, you reduce the chances of system overload. For example, if you have a total of 15 tasks to run, and the number of parallel tasks specified is 5, the tasks are run in 3 batches of 5 tasks each.

The following table shows the Retention settings.

Retention settings

Description

Max retention time log tables [months]

The maximum retention time in months for system log records, which are saved in the database. Use this setting to clean up old system logs automatically.

The value 0 means the setting is off, so the logs will not be cleaned up. The maximum value is 120 months.

Max audit log history [months]

The maximum number of months during which the history of Audit Log records is saved. Use this setting to clean up old Audit Log records. The value 0 means the setting is off, so the Audit Log will not be cleaned up. The maximum value is 120 months.

The following table shows the Email settings.

E-mail settings

Description

E-mailserver (SMTP)

The Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the SMTP server.

E-mailserver port (SMTP Port)

The port number of the SMTP server.

Refer to the list of port numbers and ranges in the Firewall Guidelines to decide on the correct SMTP port.

Sender

The email address of the sender of the SMTP server.

Use SSL

Check this field to enable SSL. When selected , the Application Server will connect to the SMTP server using the SSL protocol, which means authentication is done securely based on certificates.

Username

This username will be used when the SMTP server requires authentication.

Password

This password will be used when the SMTP server requires authentication.
