3.2. Centralised configuration

Some of the settings for Virtual Postman Scan Client are managed centrally on the Virtual Postman server. These settings include the the list of nodes the Scan Client user has access to as well as the names and configuration of the indexes for each node.

When the Scan Client is logged into for the first time, these settings are downloaded from the Virtual Postman server automatically. If the central settings on the server change, the new settings need to be re-downloaded to the Scan Client. This can be done by selecting the Download settings option from the Settings menu in the Virtual Postman Scan Client as shown below:
