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 .
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)
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 .
