Web-based System Manager Administration Guide
Web-based System Manager provides a variety of ways of obtaining assistance
and additional information.
- Hover Help
- Provides assistance for icons in the tool bar. Position the mouse
pointer over a tool bar icon and wait for a couple of seconds. A text
label displays, identifying the meaning of the icon.
- Provides assistance on common tasks performed with the currently active
plug-in. Tips are displayed between the menu and tool bars. Tips
are provided in the form of simple text instructions or hypertext links to
browser-based help. The user can hide or show the tips area according
to preference by using the Show submenu in the View menu. (See Tips Area for additional information).
- Context Help
- Provides assistance on the use of dialog windows. Access context
help by clicking the Help button in the lower-right corner of the
dialog. A small context help window displays. When you click on
individual controls in the dialog, assistance on the use of that control
displays in the context help window. When context help is running, you
can only access the controls in the dialog to view help. To use the
controls, you must first close the context help window either by clicking the
Close button on the context help window or clicking the
Help button in the dialog that you sought help on.
- Browser-based Help
- Provides extensive information for tasks in the browser-based help
system. To use the browser-based help system, you must first have a
document server configured. After the help server has been identified
to the managed host, you can access browser-based help by making a selection
from the Help menu in the menu bar or by clicking on a link in a Tips
When a plug-in supports Large Icons, Small Icons, or Details view, you can
make it easier to locate objects by filtering or sorting the view.
Filtering reduces the number of objects displayed in the contents area.
You can filter a view either by specifying the names of objects or by defining
one or more rules for excluding objects from the view:
- To filter objects, select the View menu, then the Filter
icon. The Filter tab lets you define a list of objects to
exclude from the view. To specify an object to hide, type its name in
the field to the right of the Add button. Then press the
Add button. Repeat this task for each object that you want
to hide. Alternatively, you can click the Browse button to
display a list of objects that can be hidden. Select those objects that
you want to hide and click OK. They display in the
Hidden Objects list. To remove the listed objects from the
contents area, press either OK or Apply.
- The Advanced tab lets you define one to three rules for hiding
objects based on specific attributes of those objects. For example, to
hide all of the administrative users from the All Users plug-in, open the
filter dialog and select the Advanced tab. Make sure the
Hide the objects check-box is checked. Then select the
Type property, and the = relationship. Enter the
matching value Administrator, and click OK or
Apply. All of the administrative users are removed from the
view. You can supply additional rules by clicking the Add
Rule button. An additional rule definition row displays.
Multiple rules are combined by an AND operation. To remove rules, click
on the Remove button to the right of the rule. To remove the
last rule, clear the matching value from the rule.
Both the Filter tab and the Advanced tab can be used
together if the Hide check-box is checked on both tabs.
