You can configure your user settings by going to Preferences and opening the User Preferences tab. These settings affect different aspects of the web application and are divided into four different categories.
User vs Domain
On a general basis, when a setting is present both in the user and domain preferences, the user will always take preference over the domain.
These preferences affect how your user will experience Devo.
|Inactivity Period for session expiration (in minutes)||After selecting the Set an inactivity time checkbox, indicate how many minutes of inactivity should pass before your Devo session automatically expires.|
|Set an inactivity time||Check this box if you want to set a timeout for your Devo session (indicated in the field above). If not checked, your session will never expire.|
|Home page||Select the area of the application you want to set as your home page when you start a session.|
|Language||Select the language of the application.|
|Use browser language|
Check this box to use the language configured in your browser. When this box is checked, the Language field will be disabled.
Unsupported browser language
If your browser language is not supported by Devo, English will be the language automatically applied. However, you need to close and reopen the Devo Platform for it to work correctly.
|Data Search server mode||Check this box if you want to access the search window in server mode after running a search, recommended when dealing with large amounts of data. Learn more in Best practices for data search.|
|Default case sensitivity in searches|
Some query operations have a case sensitive and a case insensitive version, for example, Contains - case insensitive (weakhas) and Contains (has, ->). This setting will make appear by default only the selected type ones (Case sensitive or Case insensitive) in the Operations over columns when you run a search. Operations that don't have a sensitive and insensitive version will be visible no matter the option selected.
Note that you can change this option anytime in the search window, but the default list when you run a new search will depend on the value set here. Learn more in Build a query using the search window tools.
This setting will also affect the behavior of global searches in your domain. If you select the Case sensitive option, the global search will be case sensitive, and the operation used to filter the data will be Contains tokens (toktains). Otherwise, if you select Case insensitive, the operation used will be Contains tokens - case insensitive (weaktoktains). Learn more in Run a global search.
