Address editor

What is the address editor?

You can think of the address editor in terms of list of contacts or a phone or address book, it includes 2 sections - one for wallets (and usernames for pools that require username passed instead of wallet address) and one for pools. You fill the entries (addresses), give each a name (tag name), and after saving can use the entries in configs, config templates, profit switch, without the need to fill the entries manually every time.

How does the address editor work?

Here we can see the sections of Pools and Wallets, where there is a table underneath each.

Tag name

To the left, the column is called "Tag Name", and in our Contacts List analogy this is the Contact's Name field. Tag name can be anything you like as this is only the label you will be using across your minerstat dashboard. Tag name must be unique though (you can't use same tag names for different pools or different wallts).

Address

To the right, the column is called "Pool Address" when in Pools section and "Pool username or wallet address" when in Wallets section. This is equal to the address of the Contact in the analogy.

Export/Import

We can also see the export and import buttons on top right for backing up or restoring multiple pools or wallets at once.

Using the address editor

Notice The processes are exactly the same with wallet and username entries, just select the Wallets section instead of Pools section.

Adding a pool or wallet

Let's say we want to add Ezil.me ETH+Zil pool address and name it EZIL-ETH.

First, let's navigate to the pools section of address editor.

Fill the Tag Name with "EZIL-ETH" and the "Pool Address" with the address.

Don't close the address editor just yet, otherwise the tag will not be saved.

Now press "Add", you will see a checkmark appear in place of the "Add" button, after which the added entry will move down and we'll be presented with another empty field where we can add another pool.

You can see two buttons appear on the right, one to Edit the entry (the pencil), and one to remove it (the trash bin).

Editing an entry in address editor

Open the address editor page, then the section in which you want to edit the address.

You can proceed to click the Edit button on the right of the entry, or simply click the field you want to modify. It's possible to edit both the tag name and the contents of the tag (pool address or wallet address or username) at the same time, and then you need press the Save button to the right of the edited entry.

Let's say, we use the example address we created above and want to change it to the USA West server of the pool, and make it clear that the address is for USA West server by changing the name.

Don't forget to click the appeared Save button. You will see a circled checkmark appear in place of the Save button for a brief moment of time which means that our changes have been saved.

Removing an entry from address editor

Right next to the edit button, there is the remove button, which looks like a trash bin.

Upon clicking it, you will be presented with a warning that you should make sure that no configurations are using it, otherwise those configurations will not work.

If you missed a configuration where you're using the Tag you had removed, you will see a Red warning on the page of the worker, stating "Undefined tags":

Alternative way to add or edit tags

You can also add or edit tags whenever a tag selection menu opens. Simply fill the "Tag name" and "Pool address with port" fields and press Save. To edit an existing entry, hover over the entry and click the pencil icon, then follow the adding procedure.

Note For some pools, if you don't know the exact address, you can start typing the pool and coin names into the "Pool or address" field located on top of the selection menu. Upon clicking on one of the presented options, the fields on the bottom will be filled with displayed values, where you can press save to apply the newly added pool to the edited config.
