Managing general settings
You can view and set various cluster settings in the Settings > General page.
Entering a Cluster Key
After purchasing a cluster key and if your account has the “Admin” role, you can enter the key in the Cluster key field, either during initial cluster creation or at any time afterwards. The key defines various cluster settings, such as the maximum number of shards you can have in the cluster.
The page also displays general key details.
Viewing the maximum number of allowed shards
The maximum number of allowed shards, which is determined by the Cluster Key, appears in the Max number of shards field.
Viewing the cluster name
The cluster name appears in the Cluster name field. This gives a common name that your team or Redis Labs support can refer to. It is especially helpful if you have multiple clusters.
Setting your time zone
You can set your time zone in the Timezone field. This is recommended in order to ensure that the date, time fields, and log entries are displayed in your preferred time zone.

To enable receiving alerts by email, fill-in the details for your email server in the email server settings section and select the requested connection security method: TLS/SSL, STARTTLS, or None. Upon completing to fill-in all details, it is advisable to verify the specified settings by clicking Test Mail.
