- Go to System > Config > Backup.
- Select one of the Configuration Save options:
- Automatically Save—The system automatically saves the configuration after each change.
- Manually Save—You must manually save configuration changes from the Backup link on the System > Dashboard.
- Manually Save and Revert Upon Timeout—You must manually save configuration changes. The system reverts to the saved configuration after a timeout. You can set the timeout using the CLI:
config system global
set cfg-revert-timeout <integer>
