Orchestrator Host Settings

On the Orchestrator host portal, system administrators have access to several global settings for Orchestrator. This page describes the options available in this portal and how to use them.

The Settings page enables you to change multiple configurations, such as the time zone, the complexity of your password, alert e-mail account information, and license information.

Note: Changes to the host settings apply to all tenants that did not update their settings with custom values.
Note: The Host Management Portal enables system administrators to configure external identity provider settings and to generate installation access tokens to be used for integrating with other UiPath products or services. Read here how to access it.

Localization

You can change the language using the drop-downs displayed on multiple pages at host and tenant levels. The following languages are available:

  • English (Default)
  • 日本語
  • Deutsch
  • español
  • español (México)
  • français
  • 한국어
  • português
  • português (Brasil)
  • русский
  • Türkçe
  • 中文 (简体)

    Note: Changes in the Orchestrator localization settings are not propagated to the until you log out and back in to Orchestrator. Localization settings are not propagated at all to the Identity Management Portal.

Host Level

According to their position on the pages, there are two types of drop-downs:

A. On the General tab - The language settings here affect the user interface at host level, the Login page, while also propagating at tenant level. The only way for the propagated language to take effect is if no other local changes have been made.

B. On the left-hand menu - The language settings here affect the user interface at host level only. This drop-down has priority over the first one.

Example:

  • If I choose English on A, and Japanese (日本語) on B, the user interface at host level is going to be in Japanese, while at tenant level, English is propagated.



Tenant Level

At this level, the drop-downs are disposed the same as at host level:

C. On the General tab - The language settings here affect the interface for the current user, while also propagating to the other users in the tenant. The only way for the propagated language to take effect is if no other local changes have been made for each user. This drop-down has priority over A.

D. On the left-hand menu - The language settings here affect the interface for the current user only. This drop-down has priority over C, and implicitly over A as well.

Example:

  • If I choose English on C, and Japanese (日本語) on D, the user interface for the current user is going to be in Japanese, while for the other users in the tenant, English is propagated.
  • If no language-related changes are done at this level (C or D), then the language selected on A has been propagated both to the current user and to the others in the tenant.

Bear in mind the following:

  • When choosing the language for the user interface, the users' choice from the left-hand menu has priority over any other settings at any other level.
  • "Propagated" doesn't necessarily mean the changes take effect, it means they are transmitted to the inferior levels. They only take effect if no local changes have been made on those levels.
  • The Login page is always displayed in whatever language is set at host level, on the General tab, unless you change it manually from the drop-down on the page itself.
  • The Become a Tenant and Reset Password pages are displayed in the language selected on the Login page, unless you change it manually from the drop-downs on the pages themselves.
  • The confirmation and reset password emails are sent in the language of the user.

    Note: In some cases, you might need to refresh the page, or log out and then log back in such that all elements on the page are localized.

Deployment

The Packages section

Enables you to set an internal or an external feed in which automation packages can be maintained. By default, an internal feed is used.

The feeds can be secured either by defining basic authentication credentials or by using an API key. Choose and configure the option that suits you on the Deployment tab.

Note: Packages settings made at host level are used as defaults for new tenants only.

The Libraries section

Enables you to configure the host feed when working with libraries, be it internal or external. By default, an internal feed is used. You may also configure whether tenants are allowed or not to upload into the feed. All these settings are available on the Deployment tab.

Prerequisites for Using an External Feed Through a Proxy

If you want to use an external feed while you have a proxy server configured on Windows, the following are required beforehand:

  • Set the Load User Profile option for the Orchestrator application pool (Internet Information Services > Application Pools) to True.


  • Add the proxy settings you used in the NuGet.config file associated with the application pool identity account (C:\Users\[YourAppPoolIdentityAccountName]\AppData\Roaming\NuGet\NuGet.Config):
    <config>
    <add key="http_proxy" value="http://ipaddress:port" />
    </config><config>
    <add key="http_proxy" value="http://ipaddress:port" />
    </config>
