The Administration > Settings section sets global configuration parameters for the Morpheus appliance, whitelabeling, provisioning, monitoring, backups, logs, software licenses, and the license for Morpheus itself.


Appliance Settings

Appliance URL

The default URL used for Agent install and Agent functionality. All Instances and Hosts must be able to resolve and reach this URL over 443 for successful agent install and communication.


Alternate Appliance URLs can be configured per Cloud in the Edit Cloud > Advanced Options section.

Internal Appliance URL (PXE)

For PXE-Boot your appliance needs to be routable directly with minimal NAT masquerading. This allows one to override the default appliance url endpoint for use by the PXE Server. If this is unset, the default appliance url will be used instead.

API Allowed Origins

A CORS-related field which specifies the origins that are allowed to access the Morpheus API. For example, if you were designing a web application which needed to make AJAX calls to Morpheus API. The origins should be specified here. By default, all origins are allowed. When this field is filled, an exclusive whitelist of allowed origins is established.

Cloud Sync Interval

Data is refreshed through cloud integrations at the interval specified here in seconds, the default value is 300 seconds (five minutes). Appliances managing a very large number of clouds may be adversely affected by setting this value too low.

Usage Retainment

Determines how many days to keep account usage (metered costing data) records. Retainment period is not set by default. Usage records will remain indefinitely if Usage Retainment is not set. Note this does not affect generated Invoice records.

Incident Retainment

Enter the number of days Morpheus should keep incident records in the database. In general, this setting can be left alone but in certain cases may need to be adjusted as very large incident database tables can affect the stability of the application.

Stats Retainment

Select 30, 60 or 90 days period for stats retainment. Selecting a larger period gives the ability to analyze stats, such as Instance metrics, over a longer period of time. For example, in the Monitoring tab of an Instance detail page, users can select a 60 or 90-day analysis period if the stats have been retained that long

Denied Hosts

A comma-delimited list of IP addresses and/or hostnames which should not be allowed sources for HTTP Tasks or REST-populated Option Lists.

Approved Hosts

A comma-delimited list of IP addresses and/or hostnames which are the only approved sources for HTTP Tasks or REST-populated Option Lists. By entering any values here, all others are automatically denied.

Enable SSL Verification of Agent (Communications)

Enabling SSL Verification of Agent Communications requires a valid Certificate be installed on the Appliance.

Disable SSH Password Authentication

Only allow ssh login using SSH keys. When true, SSH Password Authentication will not be enabled for VM’s and Hosts provisioned after the setting is enabled.

Default Appliance Locale

Sets the default language and region for all users on the Morpheus appliance. Users with individual language preferences may also override this selection on their User Settings page

Default Console Gateway

Select a configured Morpheus Worker as a console gateway or VDI gateway. For more on installation and configuration of a gateway, see the VDI Gateways section of Morpheus documentation.

Tenant Management Settings

Registration Enabled

If enabled, the appliance login screen will have a “NEED AN ACCOUNT? SIGN UP HERE” link added, enabling new Tenant registration.

Default Tenant Role

Sets the default Tenant Role applied to Tenants created from Tenant Registration.

Default User Role

Sets the default User Role applied to the User created from a Tenant Registration.

User Management Settings

Min Password Length

User passwords must at least be as many characters in length as the entered value

Min Password Uppercase

User passwords must include at least as many uppercase characters as the entered value

Min Password Numbers

User passwords must include at least as many numerals as the entered value

Min Password Symbols

User passwords must include at least as many special characters as the entered value

Session Expires (Minutes)

A user session is forcibly logged out after the entered number of minutes of inactivity

Session Warning (Minutes)

A pop-up warning is shown to the user when they have been inactive for the number of minutes entered. Example: If sessions are set to expire after 90 minutes, warn the user after 60 minutes if you intend to provide 30 minutes advance warning

Expire Password After (Days)

User account passwords will expire after the entered number of days. Enter 0 or leave the field empty to opt out of this feature.

Disable User After Attempts (Number of Attempts)

Disable a User account after a specified number of failed login attempts. Enter 0 or leave the field empty to opt out of this feature.

Disable User If Inactive For (Days)

Disable a User account if inactive for the entered number of days. The User will not be able to log into the appliance again until another User with sufficient rights enables the account. Enter 0 or leave the field empty to opt out of this feature.

Send warning email before deactivating (Days)

Enter the number of days prior to account deactivation that a warning email should be sent. For example, enter “5” to warn the User when they are five days short of the deactivation time entered in the prior field. Enter 0 or leave the field empty to opt out of this feature.

Email Settings

In this section, you can configure an SMTP server for email notification delivery. You will need to provide Morpheus the following information, your mail server systems administrator can assist you in filling these fields and with the preferred encryption method.

  • From Address

  • SMTP Server

  • SMTP Port

  • SSL Enabled

  • TLS Encryption

  • SMTP User

  • SMTP Password

We recommend that you add the Morpheus server to your SMTP whitelist as well as using user authentication as an additional security measure.

Once you have added your SMTP server information into Morpheus, scroll down to the bottom of the page and press the blue SAVE button which can be found under the Enabled Clouds section.

When you have saved your SMTP server settings in the Morpheus appliance you will then need to restart the UI. To restart the morpheus-ui, connect to your Morpheus server via SSH and run the below command:

sudo morpheus-ctl restart morpheus-ui


If you do not restart morpheus-ui, the notifications will not be sent. Please note it can take up to three minutes for the UI to become reachable again.

Twilio SMS Settings

Configure SMS text message delivery for Morpheus alerts. Previously, customers could use Morpheus’ own account for delivery, but for security reasons clients must now supply their own. Complete the fields indicated below and then restart all Morpheus nodes to apply the changes.

  • Account SID: Twilio Account SID

  • SMS From #: The “From” number to receive the text message from

  • Auth Token: The Twilio API authentication token for your account

Proxy Settings

The Morpheus Appliance can be configured to communicate through a Proxy server for Cloud API’s and Agent communication back to the Appliance.


Additional Proxy configuration is available in the Infrastructure > Network > Proxies section. Added Proxies can be scoped to Clouds in the Edit Cloud > Advanced Options section of the Cloud.

Add a Global Proxy server by entering the following:

  • Proxy Host

  • Proxy Port

  • Proxy User

  • Proxy Password

  • Proxy Domain

  • Proxy Workstation

Currency Settings

In Morpheus, Tenants are separate environments which can be defined as using currencies that are unique from one Tenant to the next. In addition, these currencies may be different from the currency in which Price Sets have been defined. In order to present pricing to Subtenant users in their designated currency, Morpheus allows for integration with currency conversion services “open exchange rates” and “”. This article goes through the process of setting up the integration and how it works to determine pricing conversions.

Integrating With a Currency Exchange Provider

  1. Navigate to Administration > Settings > Appliance

  2. Under the Currency Settings heading, make a “Currency Provider” selection

  3. Enter your “Provider API Key”

The service is now integrated and can be used as described in the next section.

Consuming Currency Exchange in Morpheus

Currency exchange data is synced from the integrated provider once every 12 hours. When needed, Morpheus will use this cached data to present currency conversions rather than hitting the API directly each time. This limits the total number of API hits and reduces costs.

Exchanged currency values will be shown under conditions similar to the following scenario:

A user is working in a Subtenant configured for Currency B. The user is attempting to provision an instance with pricing sets that have only been defined in Currency A. Morpheus will convert the pricing data from currency A to Currency B for this user (and all users in this Subtenant) since price conversion has been enabled.

Enabled Clouds (Types)

Controls which types of Cloud can be created.

  • When a Cloud type is disabled, it will be removed from the available options when adding new Clouds in Infrastructure > Clouds. Existing Clouds are not affected by changes to this setting.


Whitelabel Settings


Morpheus Tenants can be WhiteLabeled with custom Logos, Colors, Copy, and custom CSS. Sub-Tenants can be individually white-labeled, or the Master Tenant Whitelabel can apply to all Sub-Tenants.

​UI Loading Page

When the Morpheus UI is restarted or loading, a default “Morpheus is Loading” page is displayed. This page can be changed by adding the following to /etc/morpheus/morpheus.rb and adjusting the values.


morpheus-ctl reconfigure must be ran for any chnages to /etc/morpheus/morpheus.rb to take effect.

nginx['web_root_internal'] = "/opt/morpheus/embedded/nginx/html"
nginx['loading_pages']['max_loops'] = 6 * 10 # 10 secs per loop x 6 times to get 60 seconds * 10 to get to 10 minutes
nginx['loading_pages']['timeout_page'] = '/timeout.html'
nginx['loading_pages']['iteration_time'] = 10_000
nginx['loading_pages']['loading_page_title'] = 'Morpheus Loading'
nginx['loading_pages']['loading_page_h1'] = 'Morpheus is Loading...'
nginx['loading_pages']['loading_page_h2'] = 'please wait'
nginx['loading_pages']['timout_page_title'] = 'Morpheus timeout, please try again...'

nginx['loading_pages']['failure_page_h2'] = 'Please contact your system administrator for assistance.'

Email Templates

Email Templates

Morpheus sends out email to its users periodically to alert for various conditions such as an Instance provisioning success, warnings about upcoming Instance expiration, requests for password reset links, and more. Morpheus includes system-default email templates for all of these emailed conditions but allows users to create their own email templates to override the default template.

On accessing the Email Templates tab, users will see a list of all email templates that currently exist. We can also see the owner which created the template as well as the associated Account (Tenant). System-default templates are shown as being owned by “System” and show no associated Account (Tenant). When a Master Tenant user creates a template, the option is given to tie the template to an Account or to make a global template. The Accounts column will show “Global” for global templates. Templates will apply in order of specificity: Tenant-specific templates apply first, then custom global templates, and finally system templates if no others exist for that email type.


Email templates apply in order of specificity. Tenant-specific templates apply over custom global templates which apply over system-default templates.


Creating Templates

Before creating the first template, it’s important to realize email from custom templates will still come wrapped in the standard Morpheus email headers and footers. It will also have included styling. This styling comes directly from your Tenant whitelabel configuration and will include Morpheus standard styling or your custom whitelabel styling depending on appliance configuration. The template itself should only include email body content which will be inserted within the styling wrapper.


It is possible to break the functionality of certain types of generated email by creating a custom template. For example, in a password reset email, you must ensure the password reset button is still included with the template. Other functionality-breaking scenarios may also be possible. Review the system-default template of any email type to copy syntax examples for such vital components.

Some template types will have variables accessible, such as the logged in user’s name (to address the email) or an Instance name. To see the available variables, click on the info button for the system-default template of the type you wish to create. You’ll see the variables mentioned in a comment at the bottom of the template such as in this example Confirm Password Update Template:

<p>{{{i18n ""}}}</p>
<p>{{{i18n ""}}}</p>
<a href={{{url}}}>{{{i18n ""}}}</a>
<p>{{{i18n ""}}} </p>
<!-- available hbs variables are user.displayName and user.username -->

To begin creating a new template, from the Email Templates tab of the global settings page (Administration > Settings), click + CREATE. The following configurations must be set:

  • TYPE: Select the email type for the new template

  • TEMPLATE: The HTML markdown for the new custom email template

  • TENANTS: This option is only available in the Master Tenant. Select a specific Tenant to tie the template to that Tenant or leave it empty to create a global template

The following is an example of a Forgot Password Template. Note that it calls in the variable for the associated user display name and username.

<p>Hello {{{user.displayName}}},</p>
<p>You have requested to reset the password for the account with username: {{{user.username}}}.</p>
<p>To reset the password, please click the button below. If you did not make this request, you can ignore this email but you should change your password.</p>
<a href='{{{forgotPasswordUrl}}}' class="btn-primary">Magical Password Reset Button</a>

Logging Settings


Morpheus contains a built-in logging solution that aggregates logs from hosts and services. Logs are displayed, searchable, and filterable in the Instance, App, Host and global Logs (Monitoring > Logs) sections. Logs can also be forwarded using Syslog forward rules to any external solution that supports Syslogs.

The logs displayed in the Instance, App, Host and overall Logs (Monitoring > Logs) sections are only from managed VMs and Hosts that have the Morpheus Agent installed. Morpheus Agent will watch /var/logs for any .log file and report them back accordingly. Containerized Instances can be configured to show additional logs by configuring the LOG FOLDER in the Library NODE TYPE. Logs from any .log file in the specified folder will be forwarded by the Morpheus Agent to the Morpheus appliance or forwarded with Syslog forward rules.


The Logs section does not contain Morpheus appliance logs, which can be found in /var/log/morpheus/ and in Administration > Health.

Logs are stored in ElasticSearch and retention can be set by adjusting the Availability Time Frame in the Administration > Settings > Monitoring section. Logging can also be disabled with a simple toggle switch just above the Availability Time Frame configuration.

Morpheus guidance is an important tool that makes recommendations for resource and cost optimization. It analyzes CPU, memory, and storage activities over time to make intelligent recommendations on sizing and power state. These recommendations can free up resources and save organizations significant amounts of money over time. Out of the box, Morpheus is configured for sensible thresholds used in making these recommendations but they can be edited here if needed.

Power Settings

Morpheus will recommend shutting down a resource if all three of the baselines in this section are exceeded:

  • Average CPU (%): Shutdown will be recommended if the average CPU usage is below this value. Values over 100% are possible as this value factors the number of CPU cores. Default value: 75

  • Maximum CPU (%): Shutdown will be recommended if the CPU usage never exceeds this value. Values over 100% are possible as this value factors the number of CPU cores. Default value: 500

  • Network Threshold (bytes): Shutdown will be recommended if the average network bandwidth is below this value. Default value: 2000 bytes/second

CPU Up-size Settings

CPU up-size will be recommended when both of the following baselines are exceeded for a resource:

  • Average CPU (%): CPU up-size is recommended if the average CPU percentage exceeds this value (and other criteria are also met). Default value: 50

  • Maximum CPU (%): CPU up-size is recommended if the maximum CPU percentage exceeds this value. Default value: 99

Memory Up-size Settings

Memory up-size will be recommended when both of the following thresholds are met for a resource:

  • Minimum Free Memory (%): Memory up-size will be recommended if free memory dips below this value. Default value: 10

Memory Down-size Settings

Memory down-size will be recommended when both of the following thresholds are met for a resource:

  • Average Free Memory (%): Memory down-size is recommended if the average free memory is above this value. Default value: 60

  • Maximum Free Memory (%): Memory down-size is recommended if free memory has never dipped below this value. Default value: 30



Morpheus includes pre-configured OAuth clients and allows the user to create as many additional clients as they’d like. The pre-configured clients are editable but cannot be deleted. Once configured, access tokens may be generated or re-generated from the API Access section. Their expiration times may be viewed as well. Client settings are available only in the Primary Tenant and affect all Tenants.

Creating an OAuth Client

To create a new OAuth Client, click + ADD and configure the following:

  • CLIENT ID: A reference name for the client in Morpheus

  • SECRET: An optional OAuth client secret

  • ACCESS TOKEN VALIDITY INTERVAL (SECONDS): The length of time (in seconds) during which the token should be enabled

  • REFRESH TOKEN VALIDITY INTERVAL (SECONDS): The length of time (in seconds) during which the refresh token should be enabled

Once the client is configured, click SAVE CHANGES.

Editing and Deleting OAuth Clients

From the OAuth client list view (Administration > Settings > Clients), click the pencil (✎) or trash can (🗑) icons to edit or delete the OAuth Client.


Pre-configured Morpheus-default clients may be edited but not deleted. User-created clients may be edited or deleted.



The Environments section is where you create and manage your environment labels, which are available in the Environment dropdown during Instance or App provisioning. An Instance’s environment label can be changed by editing the Instance.

Provisioning with Licenses

When a Virtual Image is added to a license, Morpheus will automatically apply the License to Instances configured with the Virtual Image during provisioning, including Instance Types with a Node Type that is configured with the Virtual Image, or if the image is selected when using generic Cloud Instances types (VMware, AWS, Nutanix, Openstack etc). Virtual Images can be removed from a License by editing the License.

Managing Licenses

Created Licenses details are displayed in the License page, including the number of copies applied per License, the Tenants added to the License, and the Virtual Images attached to the License.

The Name, Version, Copies, Description, Virtual Images and Tenant Permissions are editable but selecting the Actions dropdown on a License.


License Types, Keys, Org Names and Full Names are not editable after a license has been created.

License can also be removed using the Actions dropdown on a License.



Morpheus requires a valid license for provisioning new Instances, Apps and Hosts, and converting existing Instances and Hosts to managed. Licenses can be applied and updated in this section, and the current license status can be checked.


Morpheus is licensed for a certain number of concurrent workload elements (WLEs) that may be managed or inventoried at any one time. See our Knowledge Base for specific information on the types of WLEs that count against Morpheus licensing.

Current License

If a License Key has already been applied, the License status is shown in the Current License section:

Tenant Name

Company name the License was generated for.

Start Date

Date and time the current License started.

End Date

Date and time the current License expires.


Amount of used and unused Managed RAM under the current License.

EXAMPLE: On a 1 TB License with 182 GB of RAM under management, the Space section will show Used Space 182.9GB Unused Space 841.0GB


Once a current License expires or has reached its Space limit, users will no longer be able to provision new Instances, Apps, Hosts, or Bare Metal, or convert existing Hosts, Virtual Machines, or Bare Metal to managed. Morpheus will otherwise continue to function.

Upgrade License Key

To add a new or update an existing License:

  1. Copy the License Key into the License Key field

  2. Click UPDATE

If valid, the new License will be applied.

Request new License

Licenses can be requested at, or by contacting support@ or sales@


System administrators have access to a utilities panel with the following options:

  • Reindex all searchable data: Execute

  • Toggle Maintenance Mode: Enable


Maintenance mode cleanly places Morpheus into a state where maintenance can be performed on the appliance. This drains any active sessions and queues so an auto-scaling group can scale down. It also drains active sessions across services. Restarting Morpheus UI disables maintenance mode.


When using Morpheus in a Highly Available (HA) environment, it is important to navigate to a node directly and enable maintenance mode, as opposed to using the load balancer virtual IP (VIP). A local host entry to the specific node may be required to ensure the correct node enters mainteance mode. In fact, it is recommended to use the analogous API endpoint to toggle a specific node into maintenance mode to avoid redirects back to the VIP address.

A Morpheus node in maintenance mode can still be accessible through the load balancer VIP/target group and can queue requests but will not process anything in queue, while in maintenance mode. A node can be removed/paused from the load balancer VIP or have VIP health checks implemented, if the node UI/API will become inaccessible due to maintenance.
