Windows Admin Center Settings
Applies to: Windows Admin Center
Windows Admin Center settings consist of user-level and gateway-level settings. A change to a user-level setting only affects the current user's profile, while a change to a gateway-level setting affects all users on that Windows Admin Center gateway.
User-level settings consist of the following sections:
In the Account tab, users can review the credentials they have used to authenticate to Windows Admin Center. If Azure AD is configured to be the identity provider, the user can log out of their Azure AD account from this tab.
In the Language/Region tab, users can change the language and region formats displayed by Windows Admin Center.
In the Personalization tab, users can toggle to a dark UI theme.
In the Suggestions tab, users can toggle suggestions about Azure services and new features.
Development settings in Windows Admin Center consist of the following sections:
- Performance profile
The Advanced tab gives Windows Admin Center extension developers additional capabilities.
The Performance profile tab lets you collect performance data about your Windows Admin Center session.
Gateway-level settings consist of the following sections:
- Diagnostics & feedback
- Internet Access
- Shared Connections
- WebSocket validation
Only gateway administrators are able to see and change these settings. Changes to these settings change the configuration of the gateway and affect all users of the Windows Admin Center gateway.
The Access tab lets administrators configure who can access the Windows Admin Center gateway, as well as the identity provider used to authenticate users. Learn more about controlling access to the gateway.
In the Diagnostics & feedback tab, users can choose how much diagnostic data they want to send to Microsoft.
In the Extensions tab, administrators can install, uninstall, or update gateway extensions. Learn more about extensions.
In the General tab, users can select to have their UI session of Windows Admin Center expire after some period of inactivity.
The Internet Access tab lets administrators configure who can access the Windows Admin Center gateway, as well as the identity provider used to authenticate users. Learn more about controlling access to the gateway.
The Proxy tab allows users to configure a proxy server to redirect all Windows Admin Center outbound traffic.
From the Register tab, administrators can register the gateway with Azure to enable Azure integration features in Windows Admin Center.
Using the Updates tab, users can see which version of Windows Admin Center is running and if this version is up to date.
Using the Shared Connections tab, administrators can configure a single list of connections to be shared across all users of the Windows Admin Center gateway. Learn more about configuring connections once for all users of a gateway.
For WebSocket validation, administrators can now validate their WebSocket connections and customize these settings to various conditions. Learn more about WebSocket validation
