Configure locale settings for the User Console

Configure locale settings for the User Console

The KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA) supports several locales. The Administrator Console, System Console, and online help can be displayed in English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.

In addition to these languages, you can translate the User Console into other non-supported locales, such as Afrikaans (South Africa), as needed. When you translate the User Console to a non-supported language, its help contents appear in English, while other elements of the KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA), such as the Administrator Console, System Administration Console, and the associated online help, are displayed in the selected language.

By default, the browser locale determines the language in which the User Console is displayed. When the User Console is translated to another languages and properly configured (as described below), any users whose browsers use that locale display the User Console in the translated language.

1.
Go to the appliance Control Panel:
If the Organization component is enabled on the appliance, log in to the KACE SMA System Administration Console, http://KACE_SMA_hostname/system, or select System in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page, then click Settings.
2.
Click Localization to display the User Console Localization Settings page.
a.
On the User Console Localization Settings page, under Export Gettext PO (portable object) File, click Export Locale, and select the locale from which you want to translate. The list that appears includes all of the supported languages, as well as any languages to which you previously translated the User Console.
b.
Click Export.

After a few moments, a ZIP file with the following contents is available for download:

a.
Under Import Gettext PO (portable object) File, click Import Locale, and select the locale you want to associate with the PO file you are importing. This is the locale to which the User Console is translated using the translations from the imported PO file when the browser locale matches.
b.
Under Translated PO (portable object) File, click Choose File, and navigate to the translated PO file.
c.
Click Import.
6.
If you want to delete any locales that you previously imported, under Delete an Uploaded Locale, click Delete Locale, and select the locale that you want to delete. Click Delete.

Configure locale settings for organizations

Configure locale settings for organizations

If the Organization component is enabled on your appliance, you configure locale settings for each organization separately.

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. Locale settings also determine the date and time formats used in email sent from the Service Desk.

1.
Go to the General Settings page:
a.
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.
b.
On the left navigation bar, click Settings, then click General Settings.
a.
In the Locale Settings section, select a locale in the Organization Locale drop-down list.
b.
Click Save and Restart Services at the bottom of the page.
a.
In the Locale Settings section, select a locale from the Organization Locale drop-down list.
b.
In the Locale Settings section, select a locale from the Command Line Console drop-down list.
c.
Click Save and Restart Services.

The selected locale is applied. Organization users who log in to the Administrator Console and User Console see the formats for this locale, provided that the browser settings are also set to display the locale. However, user locale settings take precedence over organization locale settings.

Configure locale settings for users

Configure locale settings for users

You can configure locale settings for each user. User locale settings take precedence over organization and System-level locale settings.

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.

1.
Go to the User Detail page:
a.
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.
b.
On the left navigation bar, click Settings, then click Users.
2.
In the Locale drop-down list, select a locale.
3.
Click Save.

The locale you selected is used when the user logs in to the Administrator Console or User Console, provided that the browser settings are also set to display the locale. User locale settings take precedence over the locale settings of the user’s organization.

Configuring the default theme

Configuring the default theme

In a default installation, the Administration Console appears in a default Light theme for every new user. Two additional themes are available: the Dark and Hybrid themes. You can change the default theme for the appliance. If the appliance theme is not suitable for your use, simply choose a different theme for your profile.

For example, if the Light theme is set by default for the appliance on the System level, and you associate the Dark theme with your user profile, the Dark theme is applied each time you log in.
