Edit IDOL Site Admin Configuration Settings
The first time that you log on to IDOL Site Admin, the Settings Wizard guides you through the setup process. In subsequent sessions, you can use the Settings page to edit the IDOL Site Admin configuration file.
The Settings page enables you to carry out the following configuration tasks:
- Specify the connection type, host, and port information for the Coordinator server that IDOL Site Admin is deployed against.
- Specify the connection type, host, port, and logon type information for the IDOL Community component that handles IDOL Site Admin user authentication.
Choose whether you want to run IDOL Site Admin with an embedded database or a PostgreSQL database.
- Specify the host, port, database, and logon information for the PostgreSQL database that IDOL Site Admin uses for structured data storage.
- Configure a mail server to use to send email from IDOL Site Admin.
- Enable or disable email.
- Specify the amount of time for which alerts and tasks should display in the IDOL Site Admin interface.
- Specify the language in which the IDOL Site Admin interface should display.
Specify the method used to compress log files, the number of historic log files to retain, the frequency with which new log files are created, and the maximum log file size. You can also specify the host and port information for your syslog server, send a test message to your syslog server, and switch syslog integration and IDOL Site Admin logging off or on.
If you disable logging, IDOL Site Admin first logs that logging has been disabled and by whom.
- Set the default path for IDOL Site Admin to use to locate IDOL services on a host.
