Use the OpenStack Region field to specify the region in which the OpenStack host resides.
Use the Domain field to specify the name of the OpenStack domain used for the console. For more information about OpenStack domains, visit:
Use the OpenStack Admin Role field to specify the name of the OpenStack administrative role. When a user that is a member of this role connects to the console, the console will display the Ark administrative console (which includes the Admin and DBA tabs).
Use the OpenStack Standalone Security Model field to instruct Ark to allow an OpenStack administrator to grant access to the Ark administrative console to non-administrative OpenStack users.
If you specify true, Ark will evaluate the clouduser table in the backing postgres database to determine if the user should have Ark administrative access. When the OpenStack Standalone Security Model field is true, the Administrative console will display the User Administration table, which allows an OpenStack administrator to manage user privileges.
If the OpenStack Standalone Security Model field is false, the Service Account ID must be an OpenStack administrative user; the Ark administrative console access will not be enabled for non-administrative users.
Specify true in the OpenStack Trust All Certificates field to disable SSL checks by the Ark console.
Use the Identity Service Endpoint field to specify the URL of the OpenStack Keystone Identity Service.
Use the Identity Service Admin Endpoint field to specify the URL of the OpenStack Keystone Administrative Service.
Use the Service Account ID field to specify the name of the OpenStack user account that Ark will use when managing clusters. The account must be a member of and be assigned the admin role for all tenants that are allowed to run Ark clusters.
Use the Service Account Password field to specify the password associated with the OpenStack service account.
Use the Contact Email Address field to specify the address that will be included in the body of cluster status notification emails.
Use the Email From Address field to specify the return email address specified on cluster status notification emails.
Use the Notification Email field to specify the email address to which email notifications about the status of the Ark console will be sent.
Use the API Timeout field to specify the number of minutes that an authorization token will be valid for use within the API.
Use the WAL Archive Container field to specify the name of the storage container where WAL archives (used for point-in-time recovery) are stored. You must provide a value for this property; once set, this property must not be modified.
Use the Dashboard Docs URL field to specify the location of the content that will be displayed on the Dashboard tab of the Ark console. If your cluster resides on a network with Internet access, set the parameter to DEFAULT to display content (documentation) from EnterpriseDB; to display alternate content, provide the URL of the content. To display no content in the lower half of the Dashboard tab, leave the field blank.
Use the Dashboard Hot Topics URL field to specify the location of the content that will be displayed on the Dashboard tab of the Ark console. If your cluster resides on a network with Internet access, set the parameter to DEFAULT to display content (alerts) from EnterpriseDB; to display alternate content, provide the URL of the content. To display no content across the middle section of the Dashboard tab, leave the field blank.
Use the Enable Console Switcher field to indicate if the console should display console switcher functionality. When set to true, the console will display the switcher; when false, the switcher will not be displayed. For more information, see Section 4.1.1.
Set Enable Postgres Authentication to true to instruct Ark to enforce the authentication method configured on the backing Postgres server. Supported authentication methods include password, LDAP, RADIUS, PAM, and BSD.
If false, Ark will use the default authentication method (password).
Use the PEM Server Mode drop-down listbox to select a deployment mode:
Select DISABLE to indicate that clusters deployed on the host should not be registered with the PEM server.
Select LOCAL to indicate that you would like to use the PEM server that resides on your local host. If you select LOCAL, the PEM deployment will use default values assigned by the installer:
The PEM Server Port will monitor port 5432.
Select REMOTE to indicate that you would like to use a PEM server that resides on another host, and provide connection information on the Ark console deployment dialog. If you select REMOTE, whenever a new cluster node is created on this console, it will be registered for monitoring by the PEM server.
If PEM Server Mode is set to either REMOTE or LOCAL, use the PEM Sync Mode drop-down listbox to specify if the PEM server will automatically sync the console with the PEM server.
A corresponding PEM user is created on the PEM server for each registered Ark user. The user will be listed in the Login/Group Roles section of the PEM Browser tree control. When a new cluster node is created, the PEM agent/server will be registered with the PEM server, and the resources will be owned by the corresponding PEM user and team.
Any Ark object that is registered with PEM will be owned by the PEM server user specified in the PEM Server Username field (if the PEM server is REMOTE), or by postgres (if the PEM server is hosted on the Ark console host). PEM users will not be created when an Ark user registers with the console.
Use the PEM Sync Mode drop-down listbox to ENABLE or DISABLE synchronization between the Ark server and the PEM server. For more information about syncing with the PEM server, see Section 2.2.1.
Use the PEM Synchronization Interval field to specify the number of minutes between attempts to synchronize the Ark console with the PEM server.
Use the Storage Bucket field to specify the name of the container that will be used to store files for point-in-time recovery. This location should not change after the initial deployment of the Ark console.
Use the Console Backup Folder field to specify a folder in which the backups will be stored.
Use the Storage Tenant field to provide the name of the tenant in which the backup will be stored.
Use the DB User New Password field to modify the database password.
Use the DB User Confirm Password field to confirm the new password.
Use the drop-down listbox in the Timezone field to select the timezone that will be displayed by the Ark console.
