  • Sort by number of adapters in default view (required, default: True)
    • If enabled, the default sorting the Devices/Users page is according to the number of adapters correlating the device, meaning devices with more adapters are shown at the top of the table. This option is selected by default.
    • If disabled, the default sorting in those pages is based on the order the data was retrieved from the database.
  • Perform a query every keypress (required, default: True)
    • If eanbled, the filter expression configured in the Query Wizard filters the devices or the users as you are writing the query
    • If disabled, the filter expression configured in the Query Wizard filters the devices or the users only when you click Search.
  • Use exact match for assets search (required, default: True)
    • If enabled, searching for assets will be faster, as when you use the search bar to find assets in the Devices/Users page, Axonius runs the following search logic on the specified value:
      • 'Case sensitive exact match' search in any of the selected columns.
      • 'Case insensitive exact match/ start with' search in the following columns:
        • Devices page: Hostname, Last Used Users.
        • Users page: User Name, Email.
    • If disabled, when you use the search bar to find assets in the Devices/Users page, Axonius runs 'contains' search to find the specified value in any of the selected columns.
  • Require Connection Label on each adapter connection (required, default: False)
    • If enabled, the Connection Label field will be mandatory on each adapter connection.
    • If disabled, the Connection Label field will be optional on each adapter connection.
  • Number of values displayed in each column (required, default: 2) - Select whether Device and User multi-value fields display a single or two values. If such fields have more values than the selected option, those values can be viewed by hovering over the "+x" indication.
  • Export CSV delimiter to use for multi-value fields (optional, default: empty) - Specify a delimiter to separate between values within the same field of an exported CSV file.
    • If supplied, values within the same field will be separated by the specified delimiter once the CSV file has been generated.
    • If not supplied, values within the same field will be separated by "\n" (new line) once the CSV file has been generated.
  • Date format (required, default: YYYY-MM-DD) - Select the date format to be displayed in all Axonius pages. You can choose between:
    • YYYY-MM-DD (for example: 2020-12-31)

    • If enabled, the Remember me checkbox will not be displayed on the login page.
    • If disabled, the Remember me checkbox will be displayed on the login page.
  • Session idle timeout (minutes) (required, default: 1440) - Configure user idle duration (in minutes) before the system automatically ends a user session and logs that user off the system.
