Unless otherwise specified, all configuration settings on this page are to be made in the `.env` file of the application in question. Each application has a file named `.env` in its root directory.
By default, users **are not** able to self-register on the DFE Console. To change this behavior, set this variable to `true`.
When self-registration is disabled (the default), users are directed to specific route. The default is to send them back to the login page. Changing this variable selects the route to which users are redirected.
The system gathers metrics daily for reporting. This information is kept for 365 days by default. Changing this variable will set the number of days which metrics information is kept.
By default, a basic DFE installation does not have SSL configured. There are outside dependencies that are beyond the scope of the installation utility. However, once you're in possession of an SSL certificate and want DFE to produce *https* SSL URLs, change this variable to `https` from `http`.
By default, all user-created exports have a shelf life of 30 days. The daily maintenance task removes expired snapshots. If you wish to lengthen or shorten this time frame, simply change the value of this variable.
By default, users **are** able to self-register on the DFE Dashboard. To change this behavior, set this variable to `false`.
By default, dashboard users are not allowed to upload their own personal export files. The system manages a list of exports it has created, and by default, users may choose only from that list.
If you wish to allow your users to upload their own export files, set the value of the `DFE_ALLOW_IMPORT_UPLOADS` to `true`.
