General Settings

In General Settings, system admins can configure the email server, root URL for accessing ECP, user invite method, log settings, monitoring and alarm configurations, and system language settings.

In addition to the ability to configure settings like the email server, access URL, user invitation methods, Telegraf image, and language preferences, ECP also supports configuring logs, monitoring, and alarms at the system level. For more instructions, see Logs and Observability.

Manage User Invite Method

System admins can create users directly or invite them via email to join the ECP platform. Inviting users through email is particularly useful for those with specific security requirements for usernames and passwords. It also enables efficient batch user addition.

  2. In the left navigation menu, click System Settings -> General Settings.

You can use this function to push ECP logs and audit information to a specified Syslog server to connect to a third-party log system.



On the Monitoring configuration page, you can set EMQX monitoring rules, NeuronEX monitoring rules, NeuronEX detection interval Settings, and monitoring counter collection.

The monitoring indicator collection needs to specify an address for the Prometheus service, an access username and password, and a PushGateway service address.


Floating License Configuration

The offline active time of NeuronEX can be configured through this function. The offline active time of NeuronEX refers to the time it can run normally after being separated from ECP management. If set to 14 days, NeuronEX will run normally within 14 days after leaving ECP management. After 14 days, NeuronEX's operating functions will be limited.
