Advanced configurations

The Main menu of UgCS can be used to set up more configurations.


The Core service section defines HCI and VSM connections to a UCS. By default, it points to the local instance. In the case of a multi-node deployment network, the address of the UCS can be specified.
UgCS uses the system's default proxy settings. If custom proxy settings are required, settings can be applied in components configuration files: MENU -> Configuration -> Connections. Changes in these settings can affect the map loading.


Records for each of the VSM servers. By default points to local instances. If using a dedicated VSM installation and want core services to connect to it, add a new record with the appropriate host and port fields.


Enable the option to add new geoservers or edit/remove the URL of existing geoservers.


Select the language of the user interface. The most popular language of UgCS users is available.


Choice of the measurement system as metric or imperial on the user interface.
