Edge Compute
To enable and configure Edge Compute functionality in Portainer, select Settings from the menu then select Edge Compute.
To learn how to use our Edge Compute functionality, please refer to the Edge Compute section of this documentation.

Edge Compute settings

Use the following options to configure and enable Edge Compute functionality within Portainer.
Field/Option
Overview
Edge agent default poll frequency
Select the interval used by default by each Edge Agent to check in with the Portainer Server instance. The default value is to check in every 5 seconds.
Enable Edge Compute features
Toggle this on to enable Edge Compute functionality including Edge Device features.
Enforce environment ID
Enable this option to require that the environment ID used by an Edge Agent deployment exist within Portainer's database (in other words, have an environment with the matching ID already created) in order to connect.
Trust on first connect
By default, when an Edge Agent first connects to the Portainer instance, Portainer will automatically trust the Edge Agent. You can disable this automatic trust by toggling this option off. When this option is off, you will have to manually accept Edge Agent associations with Portainer.
When you are done, click Save Settings.

To create a new profile, click Add Profile. To edit an existing profile, click the name of the profile you want to edit. You can also check the box next to a profile and click Duplicate to create a copy of it, and Remove to delete the profile.

Once you've finished with your script, click Save Profile.
