Managing a database

The available actions can be selected via the context menu that is accessed using the right mouse button or also via the ribbon.

Database settings

All database settings are saved in the database. It is necessary to log in to the database before editing the settings. Any user that exists in the database can be used for this purpose. You can always restore Global settings via the ribbon.

Multifactor authentication

This area can be used to configure which services will be used for multi-factor authentication. The available services are: RSA Secure ID, SafeNet, YubiKey NEO, and YubiKey Nano. After selecting the required service, specify the respective access data. You must also configure various services. In this case, you can specify on the client which methods will be used by the individual users.

Further information on this subject can be found in the section Multifactor authentication.

PKCS#11

Via the PKCS # 11 interface, the server keys can be protected via a hardware security module (HSM). The interface can be configured here.

Automatic clean up

If desired, the logbook, notifications, session recordings and also the historical documents can be automatically cleaned up here. You merely have to enter how old the data needs to be before it is deleted. Logbook entries can be exported before the deletion process.
