Edit Defaults Configuration

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Settings menu, and click the Configuration icon.
  2. Click the Defaults tab to change the following application settings:

    Please note, the system will restart OnApp services automatically after you save new configuration.

    Enable password protection on user deleting - move this slider to the right to enable confirmation of user deletion by means of administrator password.

    Enforce password complexity - move this slider to the right to specify the following password complexity configuration settings:

    • Minimum length - specify minimum required password length (0-99). The default value is 6.
    • Enforce at least one upper and lower case letter - move this slider to the right to enforce user using both uppercase and lowercase letters in their password.
    • Enforce at least one letter and number - move this slider to the right to enforce user using both letters and numbers in their password.
    • Enforce symbols - move this slider to the right to enforce user using symbols in their password.
    • Enforce unique password every time - move this slider to the right to make user enter unique password each time they change password (the last 12 passwords are saved in OnApp configuration). This refers to the user account passwords only.
    • Lockout attempts - the number of unsuccessful login attempts that are allowed before user's account is locked out.
    • Expiry (Months) - specify the password expiry period in months.

      To save password complexity configuration disable the Enforce Password Complexity option and enable it again.

    New Virtual Servers

    • Default Image Template - choose a particular OS template as the default for VS creation. A new virtual server will be created using this template, unless otherwise set in the wizard.
    • Service Account Name - specify the service account name that will be automatically created on VMware virtual servers to be able to communicate with them.


    • Default firewall policy – default settings for a VS's Networking > Firewall tab (accept/drop). Changes in the default firewall policy will be applied only to those VSs, which will be created after these changes.
    • Enable KVM anti spoofing - move this slider to the right to run the anti-spoofing mechanism for IP addresses of the network interfaces attached to KVM-based virtual servers. To apply anti-spoofing, it is necessary to restart the httpd service (onapp-frontend-httpd-group-cluster for HA installation) and OnApp Daemon.

      Anti spoofing option does not support IPv6 addresses. It is applicable for VSs based on Centos5 KVM compute resource only.

    • Allow to start more than one Virtual Server with the same IP - move this slider to the right to allow starting up virtual servers with one IP address.

    SSH Options

    • SSH port – specify the port used to connect to Compute resources and backup servers.

     SSH Keys

    • SSH-keys – click to manage the administrator SSH keys. The keys will be automatically assigned to all VSs which will be created in the cloud later.
      To assign the keys to existing VSs, go to VS Overview > Properties menu.

  3. Click the Save Configuration button to finish.
