Statistics Settings

The Statistics Settings page will allow you to define global settings related to generating statistics from your IdP log files.

In the top left hand corner there is a button to “Regenerate Statistics”. This button will force a re-import of all the log files which are on the IdP to re-process all statistical data. This is particularly useful if you’ve uploaded an older set of logs from an older IdP, or if you’ve just migrated to our Overt IdP.

Next to the “Regenerate Statistics” button is a “Force LDAP Group Sync” button, this forces a re-import of all Active Directory groups into the Dashboard software. The Dashboard will pull from Active Directory the values of the attribute set below in the “Group Attribute” input box. So if your Active Directory uses “memberOf” for your user groups you would enter “memberOf” into the Group Attribute input box and then click “Update”. Clicking “Force LDAP Group Sync” would then re-import every memberOf value from Active Directory into the Dashboard to be used as a search filter in the resource and authentications statistical reports and granular access rules. Some organisations may use an extension attribute or a different AD attribute to memberOf so feel free to use whatever attribute that you feel best contains groups of users.

The Service Providers section below is a table of all service providers the Dashboard has identified from your IdP audit log files. Here you have the ability to set a friendly name for these resources as opposed to their service provider entity ID. If no friendly name has been set for a service provider then it will appear as “Empty” in the list. To set or update a friendly name, simply click on the name you wish to amend. A pop up will appear in a modal window with an input box which will allow you to set the friendly name. Press the blue tick button to apply this friendly name to the service provider. This resource will now show up as the friendly name set in the various reports on the Dashboard instead of the entity ID.
