This topic provides information about managing the system settings.


The system settings are applied to all users in the system.

To apply system settings

Navigate to Administration > System Settings, provide the following information, and click Save to apply the settings to all users in the system.

Enable Data Access Control

Use this setting to apply access permissions to the user groups specified at the time of creating data collectors, for accessing and viewing data.

Note: By default, this check box is already selected. If you disable this setting and then later enable it after creating a data collector, the access permissions might not be applied.
Maximum Data Retention (in days)

This value indicates the maximum number of days for which the data collected is retained in the system. After this duration, the data is not available for searching.

By default, this value is set to 7.

While creating data collectors, you can set the Read from Past (#days) field to a value within the limit specified in this field.

For example, if this value is set to 30 (the number of days), then the data collector cannot read past data beyond 30 days and must be set to a value within the 30-day limit. Again, you cannot search data with a custom time set to a duration other than that specified while creating the data collector.

Default user passwordThis value indicates the default password for all users.
Tag names

Enter a value and click Add Tag  to add tags for the system. Use these tags when you are adding a data collector.

Select a tag from the list of tags and click Delete Tag  to remove the tag from the system.
