The fields in the General properties section set values that control Ark behaviors:
Use the Console DNS Name field to specify a custom DNS name for the console. The property does not assign the DNS name to the console, but any notification emails that refer to the console will refer to the console by the specified name. If you do not provide a custom DNS name, the IP address of the console will be used in notifications.
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.
Set the CC From Address field to true to instruct Ark to send a copy of the email to the Email From Address anytime a notification email is 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 Template Restrict New Users field to configure the Ark console to make any new user a Template Only user by default. You can later modify the user definition in the User Administration table to specify that a user is not a template only user.

Select DISABLE to indicate that clusters deployed on the host should not be registered with the PEM server.

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.
Specify the port on the PEM server host used for PEM API connection attempts by the Ark server in the PEM Server API Port field. Not valid if the PEM server mode is DISABLED or LOCAL.
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.
