Authorization

In order to be able to access this chapter, you need the Settings permission.

Settings

The Settings module is where you manage all settings for your EVA environment. Settings can be set on OU-level, inherit to an OUs children and can be overridden on child-level as well.

Your overview can be filtered in several ways, starting off with setting Name and/or Organization unit. When filtering settings for a specific OU, the overview will also show any relevant settings that are inherited from a higher OU, and thus apply to the OU you're currently filtering for.

The second part of the filter relates to functionalities. You can search for settings related to any specific Functionality, or you can search by Functionality category. Whether or not you will be able to find (and/or edit) a functionality and its related settings, all depends on your current role. You can read more about functionalities in Roles & rights.


Tapping any existing setting will display three cards:

Masked values

EVA is not a password manager. Some settings are passwords that EVA needs to know for, well, reasons. However, you need to store these passwords elsewhere. EVA will mask passwords by default and can't be used as a source from where you can copy the password again when you so desire.

Adding a setting

To add a new setting, first make a choice whether it's an App setting or an umbrella type Setting from the left pane. Once you've made that choice, click the '+' icon in the top right corner.


Clicking the setting field will provide you with a list of settings to choose from. Once one is chosen, you can then specify the value and the organization unit to which this setting would impact. You can even assign the setting to a set of OUs at once.

note

You can create your own App setting using the Create option, and further use that setting as you deem fit. However, if you need this setting to influence any of our Apps then you will need to submit a change request.

Update setting

From the overview, clicking on an existing setting will present you with the possibility to change its value or delete the setting as a whole.


note

If you want to update the organization unit then you'll need to delete the existing setting and create a new one.

Child organization unit exceptions

The second card in this screen - Child organization unit exceptions - provides an overview of all the child organization unit(s) that have a setting applied to them that would override the setting you're currently viewing.

Clicking the child OU setting value will copy that value to your clipboard. Clicking the child OU name navigates you to the page for that specific setting.

Setting history

This card shows the history of value and OU changes (if any) pertaining to the setting. Within the card you're able to see the impacted OU, the time of change, the value, and changed by username. You can further filter the history by OU and value.
