Overview of the dashboard interface

In their Qrator Labs account, customers can configure the services they use, as well as track progress reports for those services.

On this page, you can see a complete list of the different sections of the personal dashboard, divided into several parts:

Resources, Ingress settings and Other settings are displayed in the main menu of the dashboard, located on the left side of the screen. The list of visible elements in the main menu varies depending on the mode selected in the switch: Qrator or Ingress.

Resources settings are displayed in the additional menu of the dashboard, located in the right side of the screen. This menu is displayed only after you've selected a particular resource in the Domains or Services section.

Dashboard

Accessibility of some parts of the personal dashboard may depend on what services are enabled for the customer. If you have any questions, please contact Qrator Labs tech support.

Also, some sections or individual settings in them may not be accessible for accounts with certain roles. See the description in the Users section for more details.

Resources

The key concept for setting up most Qrator Labs services is resources. A resource can be, for example, a website or an API gateway that needs to be protected from attacks. For different Qrator Labs services, different types of resources are configured: domains or services.

To begin working with a service, add the new resource to the list using the sections listed in the table below. Then go to resources settings.

Section

Description

Domains

This is the domains settings for such services as reverse HTTP proxies and CDN integration. For each domain, load balancing is performed independently between the specified upstreams.

Prefixes

Settings for connecting to Qrator Labs via BGP, which must be performed before adding services in Services.

Services

Configuring the service map to work via BGP. Each service describes the type and volume of legitimate traffic for specific IP addresses. This allows the Qrator Labs network to drop traffic that uses ports and protocols not specified by the service.

Note

The Prefixes section relating to BGP settings should not be confused with the Ingress β†’ Prefixes section relating to ingress settings.

Resources settings

Most areas of the personal dashboard contain settings that apply to a specific resource.

To go to resources settings, first go to Domains or Services and select the desired resource from the list. After that, a list of sections related to this resource will be displayed in the additional menu.

The set of available sections differs for domains and services.
