Options let you fine tune Security Zen to work best for you. Options will automatically be saved upon closing the window.
"Security Protocol" may be set to use TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2.
Note that Salesforce is requiring the change to TLS 1.2 in 2019 per this knowledge article: Salesforce Disable TLS 1.1.
"Retrieve Max Number of Polls" is the maximum number of times that the server will be contacted to determine retrieve status.
"Retrieve Poll Time (seconds)" is the amount of time to wait between Polls during a retrieve.
Note: For larger data sets, the above numbers may need to be increased.
"Load System Permissions" determines whether System Permissions should be added to the workspace when a retrieve is performed. Available Options:
"Color Scheme" determines the colors assigned to cells based on permissions. Available Options:
"Font Size" determines the font size within the workspace. Valid values are from 1 to 96, but more realistic values are usually between 6 and 12. Default is 8.
Note that large font sizes may cause the column headers to take up the entire height of the screen which makes the scroll bars disappear. Don't panic! To correct this, either use a smaller font size or go to the bottom of the headers and resize the height of the headers to be smaller.
"Column Width" determines the column width in Pixels. Default value is 70. Specifying a Column Width of 0 enables Automatic Column Width based on the cell contents, however, this feature significantly slows down retrieval times on large grids. Do not set to 0 for large grids. Note that changing Column Width does immediately impact the current workspace.
"Sort Rows Upon Retrieve" will cause the rows to be sorted upon retrieval, however, this feature significantly slows down retrieval times on large grids. Recommend unchecking this box for large grids.
"Active Users Only" determines whether all users, or just active users, are included in user queries. This affects the following features:
Changes in Display Options are applied during the next retrieve operation except as follows:
"Max Characters" sets a maximum number of characters per cell populated during the Security Assignment Analysis. Default is 32,767 which is maximum number of characters in an Excel cell. If 0 is specified, no maximum number of characters is imposed.
"Max Lines" sets a maximum number of lines per cell populated during the Security Assignment Analysis. Default is 252 which is near the maximum number of lines in an Excel cell. If 0 is specified, no maximum number of lines is imposed.
If "Max Characters" or "Max Lines" are specified and these are exceeded for a given cell, the last line of the cell will indicate how many more lines were not written.
If the maximums cell limits are not imposed and the contents of cells exceed the maximums that Excel support, columns may not display properly.
"Deployment Method" determines the method used to deploy security changes to Salesforce:
Options for API Deploy Method:
During an API deploy, Security Files are deployed in batches. "API Batch Size" represents the number of security files deployed at one time when using the API deployment method. Valid values for batch size are from 1 to 10.
Larger batch sizes will generally deploy slightly quicker, but there could be timeout issues with large batch sizes if you are deploying a large number of entities.
Smaller batch sizes will generally deploy slightly slower, but you are less likely to run into timeout issues.
Options for ANT Deploy Method:
"ANT Deploy Max Number of Polls" is the maximum number of times that the Salesforce server will be contacted from Security Zen to determine ANT deploy status.
"ANT Deploy Poll Time (seconds)" is the amount of time to wait between Polls from Security Zen during an ANT deploy.
Note: The above numbers do not affect the actual deploy within Salesforce, they only control how frequently and how long Security Zen Polls for information about the deployment on the Salesforce server.
IMPORTANT: Using the "ANT" method creates a separate deploy process on the Salesforce server that is independent from the Security Zen application. If the maximum number of Polls is reached and the deploy is not yet complete on the Salesforce server, the deploy process will continue on the Salesforce server. You should go to Setup->Deploy Status within Salesforce to monitor the deploy and determine if the deploy is successful.
"ANT Deploy Run Tests" controls whether tests are run as part of the ANT deploy.
