The Site Settings page shows license, culture, .NET, and web server information plus allows configuration of lookup data and event log settings. You can also enable all users to view the Custom Tools. Updating the file hashes used for the scripts in the Custom Tools can be performed here as well.

Lookup Data

Next is the Lookup Data section:

Lookup Data

There are 3 aspects that can be configured under the Lookup Data section.

1. Categories

Categories can be configured for Custom Tools so that they may be grouped for ease of interaction. You can add new categories or edit an existing one.

Lookup Data – Categories

2. Environments

Objects, such as servers or workstations, all have an Environment field, which helps in distinguishing the usage for any particular object. Like in the Categories page, you can add or edit the Environments used for objects in your installation.

Lookup Data – Environments

3. Status

Computer objects can have different statuses applied to them based on your definitions. Examples include statuses of Active, Inactive, Decommissioned, or Maintenance. You can use the same status names currently used in your organization, if desired.

In the same manner as the Categories and Environments page formats, you can add or edit statuses on this Status page.

Event Logs

If there are a lot of Event Logs being returned during a query, it can hinder your UI performance. In the Event Logs section of the Site settings, you can limit the number of Event Logs returned as well as restrict the Event Log results to a more recent date range.

The objective is to improve the user interface performance. Returning Event Log entries from a computer with a very large Event Log can impact your experience since it can take up resources to pull that information. Confining the number of results to a narrower range will also help if that is something under your consideration.

Event Logs configuration

Read-only View of Custom Tools

Near the bottom of the page you can enable a read-only view for all users so that they can view a list of all of the Custom Tools. This will help them with knowing what is available and to which tool they may wish to request access. The view is located at Tools > All tools (Read-only).

File Hash Update

You can update the script file hashes by clicking on the Update button on this page:

Be sure to read the User Guide for more information.
