Views are configurable presentations of network information. A view can include maps, charts, summary lists, reports, events, and links to other resources. As an administrator, you can assign views to menu bars, and customize each view. You may also select the charts and device properties that are displayed on each view.

You can begin customizing the SolarWinds EOC Web Console by creating new views. Complete the following procedure to create a new view.

  1. Log in to the SolarWinds EOC Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Add New View.
  4. Type a name and description for the view.
  5. If you want to add the new view to the menu bar, select Add to menu bar, and then select the roles that should have access to the new view.
  6. If you want to add a resource, click the Resources tab, and then repeat the following steps for each resource you want to add:
    1. Click the category you want in the Categories list.
    2. Click the appropriate resource.
    3. Modify the form for the new resource that appears to the right.
    4. Select the appropriate column from the Add menu at the bottom of the new resource form.

    2. Drag the resources to arrange them as you want them to appear in the view.

  3. Click Manage Views.
  4. Select the view you want to edit, and then click Edit View.

Add custom links to a view

The User-Defined Links option may be used to create quick access to external websites or customized views. URLs of your customized views can be copied from their preview pages and pasted in a User-Defined Links field. The following steps enable user-defined links from within your Web Console.

To enable a user-defined links resource:

  1. Create a new view or edit an existing view.
  2. Click the Resources tab.
  3. Click User Links under Resource Name.
  4. If you do not want to use the default title provided, enter a new Title for the links list.
  5. If you want a subtitle, enter a new Subtitle for the links list.

    Titles and subtitles may be entered as either text or HTML.

  6. Enter the following information for each link you want to define:
    1. A link Name and the URL of your link.
    2. If you want your links to open in a new browser window, select Open in New Window.
  7. Select the appropriate column from the Add menu at the bottom of the User Links resource form.
  8. If you have finished configuring your view, click OK, Save Changes.

Allow and remove view personalizations

Administrators have the ability to allow users to personalize their views. These personalizations include filtering nodes and adding, deleting, and rearranging resources, and the permission to personalize views is granted by role. For more information, see Define and assign roles

Administrators can remove all view personalizations by updating the related view. When updating a view, administrators can choose to apply layout and resource changes globally, and doing so overrides all personalizations made by any other users.

To remove personalizations from a view:

  1. Log in to the SolarWinds EOC Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Manage Views.
  4. Select the view, and then click Edit View.
  5. If you want to remove layout personalizations, select Apply layout changes globally.
  6. If you want to remove resource personalization, select Apply resource changes globally.
  7. Click OK, Save Changes.
