Zoomdata Version

Configuring Key and Value Settings

Zoomdata administrators may use the supervisor credential to manage certain settings (or server level variables) in Zoomdata. Essentially, as the supervisor, you can toggle variables and determine whether they are available to admins and users. This capability is handled from the Advanced menu, in the Key-Value Store .


Figure 1

As shown in Figure 1, variables that can be toggled include:

  • Ability for users to switch accounts they are assigned to
  • Availability to share using iFrames
  • Micro-query capability for a data source
  • Ability to set attribute-level security
  • Display certain messages in the program
  • Disable or enable the time bar's animated indicator for live data sources (such as Twitter and Kinesis)
  • Access to a new prototype custom chart template in the Chart Studio (tornado chart)
With Zoomdata v2.5, the ability to toggle connector variables has been moved to the dedicated Connectors page. See Managing Connector Services for more information.

To add a new key-value pair, log in as supervisor and click the Advanced tab. The Server Level Variables page listing all the key-value pairs are displayed.

To add a key-value pair, click Add and specify the key and its value in the corresponding fields. Click Save .

Below is the list of key-value pairs supported in Zoomdata.
