Set auto-refresh properties

Set auto-refresh properties

You can set auto-refresh to show the latest results on list pages, or you can turn auto-refresh off so that pages are refreshed only when they are reloaded in the browser.

Setting the refresh frequency to 30 seconds or less is useful for pages that display status, such as the Provisioning Results page and the Devices page. On other pages, such as the Software Catalog page, a longer refresh rate, or turning auto refresh off, might be more appropriate, because these pages can take longer to refresh.

Auto-refresh settings are page-specific and user-specific. The settings for each page and each user account are separate.

1.
Log in to the KACE SMA Administrator Console, http://KACE_SMA_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
The Devices page appears.
3.
In the Auto Refresh drop-down list, above the list to the right, select a frequency.
4.
Click the Refresh button in the top-right corner of the page to refresh the page immediately.
5.
Optional: In the Auto Refresh drop-down list, above the list to the right, select OFF to turn off auto-refresh.

Configuring locale settings

Configuring locale settings

Locale settings determine the language used for text in the Command Line Console, Administrator Console, and User Console.Locale settings determine the formats used for date and time information displayed in the Administrator Console and User Console. All text in the interfaces is displayed in English regardless of locale settings.

The locale options available through your license agreement. See View the KACE SMA version, model, and license information.

How locale settings are applied

How locale settings are applied

Locale settings are applied in a particular order.

When choosing the locale for text in the Command Line Console, Administrator Console, and User Console, the appliance uses the following priority:

1.
User: If the user locale is set, use it.
2.
Organization: If the user locale is not set, use the organization setting (available only if the Organization component is enabled on the appliance).
3.
Browser: If neither the user nor organization locales are set, use the browser setting.
4.
System (Command Line Console): If the user, organization, and browser locales are not set, use the System setting.
5.
Default: If none of the preceding options are set, use the default locale (English).
