  • Optional:
    • “server_polling_seconds” : (integer) Number of seconds between data collection probes for a NAS (minimum 10)
      • [WARNING] Changing this value will automatically trigger a close/restart of the NAS connection.

    • “ssl_accept_selfsigned” : (boolean) Accept self-signed certificates when establishing a connection to a NAS.

    • “ssl_ignore_all” : (boolean) Ignore any SSL errors with certificates when connecting to a NAS. When enabled, this will overwrite take precedence over the self-signed and hostmismatch options.
    • “nas_ssl_only” : (boolean) Require SSL connections to all NAS’s. TC will not attempt non-secure connections.
    • “nas_ignore_alerts” : (string or JsonArray of strings) Ignore passthrough alerts of the listed type(s) for all NAS connections.
      • Valid types: “information”, “warning”, “critical”, or “all”

    • “ldap_create_users” : (boolean) Allow valid LDAP authentication to dynamically create user accounts as needed. See the “ldap_default_teams” value to determine which teams/permissions these dynamically-created user accounts are allowed.

    • “ldap_servers” (JsonArray of objects) : List of LDAP settings objects * See the ldap settings page for details
