The General Settings fields are as follows: 

Server Name (mandatory)
The name of the server to be displayed on the title of each page.
Custom URL Base

By default, URLs generated in JFrog Container Registry use the context URL returned by your servlet container as a base.
A custom URL base is useful when JFrog Container Registry is running behind a proxy. In this case the base for URLs generated in JFrog Container Registry for links and redirect responses must be specified manually.

Another reason to change the base URL would be to have non-request-based operations in JFrog Container Registry use the correct address, for example in generated emails.

This may also be modified using the Update Custom URL Base REST API.

Overriding the Custom URL Base

You can override the Custom URL Base by adding an X-Artifactory-Override-Base-Url HTTP header to your request. This can be useful if you need JFrog Container Registry to answer to more than one host name.

File Upload Max Size
Maximum size allowed for files uploaded via the web interface.
Bintray Max Files Upload
The maximum number of files that can be pushed to Bintray in a single operation.
Date Format (mandatory)
The date format for displaying dates in the web interface.

When checked, JFrog Container Registry will behave as if it is not connected to an external network (such as the internet), and therefore, will not query remote repositories (regardless of the offline status of any specific remote repository).
