User settings

In this section, you can customize your user settings. Click User account at the top right corner of the ESMC Web Console (to the left of the Logout button) to display all active users. You can be logged into ESMC Web Console from different web browsers, computers or mobile devices at the same time. You will see all your sessions here.


User settings only apply to the user who is currently logged on. Each user can have their own preferred time settings for ESMC Web Console. User-specific time settings are applied to each user regardless of where they access ESMC Web Console.

Time Settings:

All information is stored internally in ESET Security Management Center using the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) standard. UTC time is automatically converted to the time zone used by ESMC Web Console (taking daylight saving into account). ESMC Web Console displays the local time of the system where ESMC Web Console is running (not the internal UTC time). You can override this setting to set the time shown in ESMC Web Console manually.

If you want to override the default Use browser local time setting, you can choose the Select manually option, then specify the console time zone manually and decide whether to use daylight saving time or not.


validation-status-icon-warning IMPORTANT

In some cases, the option to use a different time zone (for example, the local time of a client on which ESMC is running) will be made available. This setting is important when configuring triggers. When this option is available, it is indicated in ESMC Web Console and you will be able to choose whether to Use local time or not.


Click Save Time Settings to confirm your changes.
