System settings affect the entire deployment. You can access the following settings from this page.

Authentication Settings

Security Questions Management. An authentication method used for logging on to the Self-Service Console, and can be used as an identity confirmation method for risk-based authentication (RBA). The user enrolls by answering questions, and provides the same answers during authentication. For more information. see Managing Security Questions and Methods for Enabling Users for Risk-Based Authentication.

Security Questions Requirements. Enrollment and authentication requirements for users who enroll to use security questions.

Password Dictionary. A text file that contains words that cannot be used as passwords. A deployment can have one password dictionary. For more information, see Password Dictionary.

On-Demand Tokencode Delivery. Allows users to receive tokencodes on their mobile phones or through personal e-mail. For instructions, see Configure On-Demand Tokencode Delivery.

Tokens. Allows you to configure authentication and token replacement settings. You can also change host name and port number in CT-KIP URLs. For instructions, see Configure Token Settings.

Agents. Allows you to configure auto registration of the authentication agents in the deployment. You can also define the port number for the agent to communicate with the Authentication Service, and configure domain name mapping between the NT LAN Manager (NTLM) name and the User Principal Name (UPN). For instructions, see Configure Agent Settings.

RSA SecurID Authentication API. Allows you to configure the RSA SecurID Authentication API for authentication agents. You can also generate the Access ID and Access Key for communicating with agents, and you can update the communication port. For instructions, see Configure the RSA SecurID Authentication API for Authentication Agents.

Security Console Display Options. Display settings for users and attributes. For more information, see Set Console Display Options.

Session Handling. Limits the number of concurrent sessions allowed, the number of concurrent sessions an individual user is allowed, and determines how to handle users that exceed that limit. For more information, see Configure Session Handling.

Basic Settings

Logging. Set log levels and the log data destination. For more information, see Log Configuration Parameters.

Critical System Event Notification. Configure e-mail notification for administrators if a critical system event occurs, for example, if data replication between the primary instance and a replica instance stops. For instructions, see Configure Critical System Event Notification.

Report Notification. Configure a standard group of administrator email addresses that you can select when you run a report. The administrators receive an email notificationthat includes the report name and a link to the report. You can enter additional email addresses as needed. For instructions, see Configure Report Notification.
