Select this check box to enable the Management Server to send a notification message when the configuration file for a fully managed device is updated.
Send an email notification when a device with a dynamic IP address contacts the server with a new IP address
Select this check box to enable the Management Server to send a notification message when a managed device with a dynamic IP address contacts the Management Server for the first time after the IP address of the device changes.
For information about how to specify where notification messages are sent, see Configure Logging Settings for Your WatchGuard Servers.
Control Configuration Change Settings
You can set several global configuration parameters to control the log messages sent from the Management Server to the Log Server, and control which versions of TLS are used for management connections.

To configure additional logging settings for the Management Server, select the Logging tab. For more information, see Configure Logging Settings for the Management Server.
Log audit information at startup
Select this check box if you want the Management Server to collect log information on managed devices, VPN resources, VPN firewall policy templates, security templates or Device Configuration Templates, and managed VPN tunnels when they start up. You must select this check box to get accurate information in Report Manager for managed Fireboxes.
Disable TLS 1.0
Select this check box to make sure your Management Server does not accept connections from your Fireboxes that use the TLS v1.0 protocol.
Your Management Server can use TLS v1.0, v1.1, or v1.2 for connections from your Fireboxes. If your Management Server does not manage Fireboxes that use the TLS v1.0 protocol, you can disable TLS v1.0 in your Management Server settings. Fireboxes that run Fireware OS v11.8 or higher do not use the TLS v1.0 protocol. If you change the TLS setting on your Management Server, you must restart your Management Server.
