General Settings & Audit

There are two tabs on the page: General Settings and Audit.

General Settings

These are general settings which will be applicable to all the users of QMetry unless the System Admin or the user makes any changes in the settings.

  • Paging: Customize the maximum number of records that can be displayed per page in the grid. You can restrict total number of records to be displayed on one page by setting value of Page Limit. Maximum 100 records per page can be displayed.

Note: "Records initially loaded" value in Default User Settings cannot exceed the number mentioned here.

  • Maximum Login Attempts: Specify the number of login attempts allowed for a user. Mention the number of attempts in the Login Limit field.
  • Account Reactivation After Failed Logging: Once user reaches the maximum Login Limit as mentioned above, the account will be deactivated. Set the time in the Re-activate after for a user-account to stay locked after exceeding the Login Limit.
  • Password Expiry Period: Specify the number of days after which password will automatically expire. Enable the Expiry Time Period and the enter the number of days in the Days field.
  • Edit Execution Time: To allow users  to modify test case execution date and time on the Execution Screen, enable Allow manual edit of last executed date/time.
  • The Executed At field is editable only if this flag is turned On. The Date and Time can be changed at two levels: individual test cases and bulk test cases through Bulk Operation.

  • Bug Reporting: Default settings are provided for reporting errors encountered during working with QMetry. Enable Report Bug Automatically option if you want to report occurrences of bug to QMetry development team automatically without extra efforts.

If the settings are enabled, the information related to error will be sent to QMetry development team. It saves time in collecting information from users whenever such bugs are reported. Users will not be asked for steps and logs for every incident.

The following information is captured automatically whenever some services / API calls fail from the QMetry UI.

  • Support Email: This feature allows you to specify a custom Email address where you want your users to be redirected for help if they forget their password or want to reset their password. This could be your IT Help Desk email.
