Managing System Settings in Micro Edge


This article provides some detail on the general system settings which don't have a direct effect on traffic. These configuration options are found in the Settings page, under System.



This page contains configuration options for widgets displayed on the Dashboard, enabling the admin to remove default widgets, add additional ones, or change the order they are displayed in. For more details on Dashboard widgets, please refer to Understanding the Micro Edge Dashboard

This page also has a selector for the UI theme: Light or Dark.


These options enable the admin to specify the Micro Edge's hostname, domain name, time zone, and admin account password (used to access the appliance's command line).

Also located on this page:

  • Backup and restore
  • Factory reset (to return the appliance to its unconfigured/"just out of the box" state)
  • Manual reboot


Please refer to this article for more details on upgrade settings: Upgrading your Micro Edge

  • the appliance's UID
  • the software version & build
  • a link to the Contact Support information page
