If you're the administrator of your local Miris Manager platform, and you want to control it down to the last detail, then it's important to take a look at the possibilities offered by the general site administration settings.
You don't need to know the subject inside out, but this page contains a number of features and settings that can be very useful in adjusting your site to your needs. We will list them together in the next few lines.
As an administrator, you can access the Admin tab, which is hidden from other users. You should have discovered the various possibilities offered by this tab in the article "Create Miris Manager accounts for your coworkers", but here we're going to focus solely on the "General settings" panel.
The first section is "Site settings", where general actions are possible. Note that on this page, each editable field is annotated with an explanatory sentence in italics. So we won't dwell on the explanations of these functions, but simply list them:
You can enter, modify or retrieve :
- the url of the site.
- the title appearing on the site pages.
- the site name attached to emails sent by the instance.
- the language used by the site (English or French only).
- activation of antivirus scan (highly recommended). Please note that a minimum of 8 GB RAM is required for the antivirus scan to work.
- the full name of the entity that owns the site.
- the API key for the Miris Manager system.
- the matching secret key.
It is also possible to add monitoring tools or other tools at the bottom of the site's pages by writing your custom HTML code and adding it in the dedicated field. Finally, you can set up email addresses for sending and receiving messages to and from users, for feedback or communication on maintenance operations, for example.
In addition to the general information about the site, this page also allows you to configure certain aspects of the platform's behaviour towards the fleet and users, as we will see in the next chapter.
Authentication and fleet control adjustments
The "General Settings" section allows you to modify two authentication parameters: the length of inactivity after which the logged-in user's session expires, and the choice of whether or not to close the session when the logged-in user closes their browser.
But it is also possible to :
- set the port to be used for SSH requests.
- define an IP address rather than the default MAC address for the wake-on-lan of your Miris Boxes.
- define arguments to set fleet control options for users.
- prevent remote control of machines currently recording.
- allow the Speaker to ignore this lock so that they can control their recording. This can be done by Speaker's ID and/or email address linked to the user's Miris Manager account.
You can define a list of IPs authorised to use remote control rather than allowing all connected users to do so. It is also possible to enter a custom message on the remote control pages of your Miris Boxes.
Finally, you can activate the debug toolbar, and enter the list of IPs authorized to use it once activated. We strongly recommend that you only activate this module on request from UbiCast, and that you only authorize identified and secure IPs to use the module when activated. This module should remain deactivated by default. Don't forget to click on "Save" before leaving the page !
You now know how to entirely set up your Miris Manager, but don't hesitate to consult the other articles in the "Miris Manager" section to find out more about this platform !
We wish you a pleasant experience with our solutions!
