The user settings page is accessed by clicking the gear icon at the bottom of the left sidebar or by selecting the Preferences menu that appears after clicking the person icon at the top right. Users can change the preferred Console Environment from the language setting, SSH keypair management, editing user config script, and even to using Beta features.
Enables or disables the desktop notification feature. If the browser and operating system support it, various messages that appear in the GUI console will also appear in the desktop notification panel. If disabled from the operating system during the first run, the desktop message may not be displayed even if the option is turned on here. Regardless of the value of this option, the notification inside the GUI console still works.
Set the language displayed on the UI. Currently, English and Korean are supported. However, there may be some UI items that do not update their language before the page is refreshed.
- OS Default: Use the operating system’s default language.
- English: Set English as the default language.
- Korean: Set Korean as the default language.
SSH Keypair Management¶
When using the GUI console app, you can create SSH/SFTP connection directly to the compute session. Once you signed up for Backend.AI, a public keypair is provided. If you click the button on the right to the SSH Keypair Management section, the following dialog appears. Click the copy button on the right to copy the existing SSH public key. You can update SSH keypair by clicking GENERATE button at the bottom of the dialog. SSH public/private keys are randomly generated and stored as user information. Please note that the secret key cannot be checked again unless it is saved manually immediately after creation.
SSH/SFTP connection is available only with the Backend.AI GUI desktop app and is not supported on a web browser.
Backend.AI uses SSH keypair based on OpenSSH. On Windows, you may convert this into PPK key.
Automatic Update Check¶
A notification window pops up when a new version of the GUI console is detected. It works only in an environment where Internet access is available.
Log out automatically when all Backend.AI console pages are closed except for pages created to run apps in session (e.g. jupyter notebook, web terminal, etc.).
EDIT USER CONFIG SCRIPT¶
You can write scripts to mount and run automatically when creating a compute
session. Currently, three files can be edited by the user:
.Renviron. The scripts are saved for each user and can be
used when certain automation tasks are required at the start of a compute
session. For example, you can modify the
.bashrc script to register desired
alias or specify that certain files are always downloaded to a specific
Use the drop-down menu at the top to select the type of script you want to write and then write the content. You can save the script by clicking the SAVE or SAVE AND CLOSE button. Click the DELETE button to delete the script.

If you only have one page logged in, clicking the REFRESH button may not seem to work properly. Logs pages are collection of requests to the server and responses from the server. If current page is the log page, then it will not send any requests to the server except refreshing the page explicitly. To check logs are being stacked properly, please open another page and click REFRESH button.
