Configure an app
Customize the settings for your applications on a per-application basis.

Application settings

There are different settings you can apply on a per-application basis.
These settings can be accessed from the Settings tab on each application's Guard page:
  • Reason required - A reason must be provided before the application can be invoked. (default: yes)
  • Block new sessions if Cased can't be reached - If Cased can't be reached due to network errors, then deny session requests until the network error is resolved. (default: yes)
  • Session request timeout (in minutes) - If a session hasn't been approved before this timeout is reached, it must be requested again.
  • Custom waiting message - Message shown to the person requesting access in their shell while waiting for approval.
  • Peer approvals - Require approval (via Slack) for access.
  • Allow self-approval - A user can approve their own session request via Slack. (default: yes)
  • Session approval duration (in minutes) - If a user already has an active, approved session for this application, any additional sessions will be automatically approved within this time window.

Running `cased sync`

If you update Block new sessions if Cased can't be reached, you'll want to make sure to run:
cased sync
to update the client. The other settings changes do not need this.
