The following lists settings you must configure from the global site:

  • System Settings > EMS Settings:
    • Shared Settings:
      • Hostname
      • Listen on IP
      • Use FQDN
      • Remote HTTPS access
      • SSL certificate

    • EMS Settings:
      • Listen on port

  • (On-premise EMS-only) License management: You must license EMS from the global site. You can then assign the licenses to other sites. For example, consider that you have three other sites: Sites A, B, and C. If you then activate 500 ZTNA licenses on the global site, you could assign 200 ZTNA licenses to Site A, 150 to Site B, and 150 Site C. See Editing a site.
  • EMS Alerts
  • SMTP Server

On the global site Dashboard, you can only view the System and License Information widgets. The other widgets, which display endpoint information, are available at the site level.
