Enable/disable and configure the heartbeat which sends non-commercial system information to Openbravo.

What is the Openbravo Heartbeat?

The Openbravo Heartbeat is a process which sends Openbravo periodic updates regarding your technical system specifications (e.g. Operating System, Database, and ERP Version).

When the System Administrator first logs into Openbravo ERP after installing the application, a popup window is displayed explaining what the Heartbeat is and giving the user the option of enabling or disabling it, or leaving the decision to enable/disable until a later date. If Enable is chosen, the user is redirected to the Heartbeat Configuration window to configure the Heartbeat. If disabled, the Heartbeat is disabled. If the decision to enable/disable is postponed, the System Administrator will be prompted with the popup again after 3 days.
