The administrators page gives you the possibility to manage the users which have administrator privileges. Your changes will be written directly to the ivy.yaml file.

Defining an email address for the administrators is mandatory. Notifications of critical events, such as license violations, are sent to administrator email addresses.


Changes to administrators will only take charge after you restart your the engine.


System Database

For a successful configuration please consider the documentation on the Setup Wizard.


Before you save your configurations, be sure you can connect to the database. Otherwise, you may have problems on your startup.


Changes to system database will only take charge after you restart your the engine.


Web Server

This Web Server view gives you the ability to quickly change your Tomcat Connectors or Frontend Server settings. There is also a data panel, that shows you all the headers of the current request and how the engine generates some URLs.

You may also get some messages here. These appear if the URL of your Browser and the external base URL or the frontend base URL do not match.


We add the RemoteIpFilter servlet to our Axon.ivy Engine by default to resolve data represented by a proxy or load balancer via request headers (e.g X-Forwarded-For). You can configure the name of these headers by adding a new entry in our web.xml as below.

2  <filter-name>org.apache.catalina.filters.RemoteIpFilter</filter-name>
3  <filter-class>org.apache.catalina.filters.RemoteIpFilter</filter-class>
4  <init-param>
5    <param-name>protocolHeader</param-name>
6    <param-value>x-forwarded-proto</param-value>
7  </init-param>

System Configuration

On the system configuration page you will have an overview about all your configurations defined in your running engine. Configurations which are grey, are default values. If you click on the New button, you can add new configurations. If you want to edit an existing configuration, click on the Pencil button. If you click on the button More, you have the possibility to reset a configuration or view the configuration file.


Application configurations are not shown on this view. You can see defined application configurations on the Application detail view.


For more information about the configuration, please have a look at the Configuration section.



If your engine runs with an Enterprise Edition licence, your are able to define Axon.ivy Cluster. In addition your engine cockpit will provide a Cluster navigation menuitem. This will give you an overview of your running nodes and a detail view dialog if you click on one node.
