Parameter Description


ADCM’s URL to receive information from the host

Bundle verification public key

Bundle verification GPG public key to verify the bundle signature (the SIG file) when the bundle is uploaded to ADCM

Ansible settings

Parameter Description


The default number of parallel processes to spawn when communicating with remote hosts

Data retention policy

ADCM provides the way to erase the data related to jobs. Such data is, essentially, the job logs that are displayed in the Jobs section. Time period can be specified for the database and for the container file system. When the specified time period to store the logs expires, the logs are deleted from the database and from the container file system. The default value for both time periods is 365 days.

ADCM also provides the way to erase the data related to objects (for example, cluster or service) configurations. The default value for the time period is 0 days. The 0 value means an infinite storage period (configurations are not being deleted).

In addition, you can configure the data retention period for auditing operations and authorizations in ADCM.

Parameter Description

Job log retention period from file system

Number of days after which the logs are deleted from the file system

Job log retention period from database

Number of days after which the logs are deleted from the database

Objects configurations retention period

Number of days after which the objects configuration is deleted from the database. 0 means infinite storing

Audit data retention period

Data storage period (in days) for operations and authorizations in ADCM

Enable audit data archiving

Enables archiving of data on operations and authorizations after the period specified in the Audit data retention period field

LDAP integration

See the configuration settings at the page about enabling LDAP.

Authentication policy

Below are the settings for the password policy. The password length must be between the specified minimum and maximum values. In addition, you can set the allowed number of login attempts to counteract brute-forcing methods. If a user exceeds the specified number of login attempts, a user account is blocked for a specified period of time.

After the user’s blocking period expires, the login attempts counter for this user is reset to zero. Users with ADCM administrator rights have the ability to reset the login attempts counters of other users.

Parameter Description

Minimum password length

Minimum allowed password length

Maximum password length

Maximum allowed password length

Login attempt limit

Number of login attempts allowed before the user account is locked

Blocking time period

Defines a period (in minutes) of inactivity after which old failed login attempts will be cleared

Statistics collection

ADCM is able to collect and transmit insensitive statistics on user clusters created with the community edition bundles. Switch off this option if you don’t want to send those statistics to Arenadata. The option is available if the Show advanced switch is turned on.
