The Common page allows you to define settings that are common to all the installed QPR products such as the default language, E-mail settings, alert settings, and shared resources.



Installed QPR Components

The installed QPR components are shown in this section. To disable a component from the view on the left side, remove the selection from the checkbox for the component.




In the Language section you can define the default language for QPR products from the drop-down menu. The default language setting affects the language that is used in login screens and is also the language that all the new users will be using when they log into the software for the first time. Users can override the default language by selecting another language for themselves. However, login screens will always use the default language.



User Interface Preferences

You can select the skin used in all QPR client applications from the "Skin Name" drop down menu. The default setting is "QPRBlue". Selecting "<None>" will disable the skinning and make the applications use the native Windows theme. Note that if you have other QPR client applications running when you change the skin, you need to restart those other applications for the setting to take effect in them. User interface modes supported by QPR are the QPRBlue skin and the skinless mode (i.e. "<None>" is selected as the skin). Other skins are provided "as is" and they are not guaranteed to be fully compatible with QPR products.



E-mail Settings

In this section you can define settings for QPR Portal's and QPR ScoreCard's e-mail alerts and notifications.


In the SMTP-Server field you need to define the SMTP server for the administrator's e-mail address. The address is usually smtp.yourmailprovider.com. If you want to use some other SMTP port than the default one, remove the selection from the checkbox and define the port number in the Port field.


Check the Use authentication checkbox in the case your SMTP server requires authentication and provide the corresponding user name and password combination into the SMTP user name and SMTP password fields.


Enter the e-mail address where the error messages will be sent to the Administrator e-mail address field.


In the Reply address field enter the address that will appear as a sender's e-mail address and will also act as a reply address for users of the e-mail notification system.



Alert Settings

Check the Enable e-mail alerts checkbox to set the User Management System to send you messages about certain User Management Server errors and events.


In the Enable alerts for field you can select the cases where e-mail alerts are sent. With the System notifications option checked the administrator will receive notifications of basic system functions like starting or stopping the User Management System. With the Critical errors option checked the alarm message is sent in cases when the User Management Server is shut down due to a critical error.



Shared Resources

From the Shared Resources section you can enter the root folder for all the installed shared resources in order to view e.g. common settings as well as define the folder where server cache files are stored. The folder in which the data root is located is <path to All Users profile>\Application Data\QPR Software\QPR 8\8.1\ (C:\ProgramData\QPR Software\QPR 8\8.1 on Windows Vista and later versions). To view the folder containing the shared resources, click the Open folder button btn_browse_folder.


The Cache folder settings defines where cached files (e.g. cached models) are stored. By default a folder called Cache under the data root is used, but if you need to change the folder, define a new folder by clicking the Browse button btn_open_folder and locate the correct path. To view the contents of the current cache folder, click the Open folder button btn_browse_folder.



Script Settings

In this section, you can define settings for executing scripts in QPR products.


In the Script security section you can define where scripts are allowed to run. You can disable the use of scripts by selecting No scripts allowed to run, selecting the As previous, IWA allowed option will enable scripts in all development clients and Windows Explorer, and in addition Integrated Windows Authentication is allowed.


To set a default script timeout for scripts that do not contain the setting themselves, enter a number in the Default script timeout field. The value is the interval (in seconds) for displaying a notification about a time-consuming script being executed. Setting this value to 0 disables the notification.
