Okera UI for Administrators

System Settings

Admins can change system settings for the Okera UI via Okera's configuration system, see Configuration. The Okera UI settings are:

  • CLUSTER_LABEL: a text label that will be shown in the UI navigation section to indicate this cluster's purpose to end users
  • UI_TIMEOUT_MS: the number of milliseconds (maximum 60000, or 60 seconds) the UI will wait before canceling requests. Defaults to 30000 milliseconds (30 seconds)

Configuring the UI timeout

If many pages in the Okera UI report timeout errors during basic interactions, it may be a good idea to increase the UI timeout. This can be done by setting the UI_TIMEOUT_MS configuration to a higher number, for example 60000 (1 minute). This value can be configured via okctl: see Configuration

Note

Increasing the UI timeout may not always work as desired: if a request is bound to take a long time, end users will simply have to wait longer before seeing a timeout error appear.
