Zoomdata Version

Configuring Server-Level Variables

Zoomdata administrators can use their supervisor credentials to manage certain settings (or server level variables) in Zoomdata. You can toggle variables and determine whether they are available to admins and users. This capability is handled on the Advanced menu, in the Key-Value Store.


You can toggle the following variables:

  • 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)
  • Whether LDAP user credentials should overwrite the user credentials of a Zoomdata user with the same user name
  • 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 .

Key-value pairs supported by Zoomdata are described in the following table.

Key Value Description
account-switching-allowed true/false By default, the value is set to true. Enable or disable the ability for the user to switch between active accounts.
If disabled, the users won't be able to switch between the accounts that they have been added to.
dashboard-visibility-require-all-datasources true/false
default-language
disable-screenshots true/false
force-refresh-UI true/false
i18n-ui-language true/false
iframes true/false Enable this option to allow users to share code that embeds Zoomdata in an iFrame.
keysets true/false
ldap-is-active-directory true/false
ldap-user-overwrites-local true/false

Enable this option to allow LDAP users to be imported and overwrite the credentials of Zoomdata users with the same user names.

Disable this option to hide LDAP users with the same user names as Zoomdata users during import. The LDAP users will not be imported and will not overwrite the credentials of Zoomdata users.

By default, this setting is disabled (false).

microquery-<source-type > true/false

Toggle the sharpening capability for the specified source type.

For example, microquery-ORACLE=false will disable sharpening for all Oracle sources.

multi-time-groups true/false
raw-data-export-by-start-vis true/false
security-attribute-level true/false By default this option is enabled. Therefore, you can configure the fields from the specific data source to be available or hidden for a user group. You can change this on the Server Level Variables page.
show-administer-column true/false By default, the value is set to false. Setting the value to TRUE enables the Administrator function for supervisors.
show-chart-studio true/false By default, this option is enabled. Use it to toggle whether Chart Studio is visible or not.
show-dashboard-saving-prompt-message true/false By default, this option is enabled. Toggles a message reminder when changes to a dashboard have not been saved.
show-live-data-animation true/false By default, the value is set to true. Disable or enable the animated indicator on the time bar for live data sources.
show-tornado-chart true/false By default, the value is set to false. Disable or enable the ability to create a custom chart based on the tornado chart style.
