Global Settings

Click Change in the Global Settings section to update the controller database, server database or administrator’s e-mail address and options related to the R engine.

When you install Predixion Insight, Setup creates two SQL Server databases: Predixion and PredixionDB. PredixionDB is the controller database, which is used to monitor state of the main (controller) server. Predixion is part of the core analytics engine. You cannot change the connection string to either database.

To change global settings:

  1. Update the administrator email address.
  2. Click Custom to define a custom support link instead of using the default link.
  3. Click Require SSL for clients to require SSL and use the HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP when connecting to the server.
  4. In Download R Packages from, change the location of the R packages that you want to use.
  5. In R Max session memory, specify the MBs the R session can use.

    Notifications are not stored. If you disable the notifier and then enable it again, you do not receive notifications of changes to workspaces and packages that occurred while the notifier was disables.
