The web console gives administrators the ability to apply device‑based view limitations.


  • Example: You want to create a view with a resource to display last 25 Events on all UPS devices. In this case, we use type of limitation: Group of Groups: UPS.


  • NPM all versions



To enable a view limitation:

  1. Click Settings in the top right of the web console.
  2. Click Manage Views in the Views group of the Orion Website Administration page.
  3. Select the view to which you want to add a limitation, and the click Edit.
  4. In the View Limitation area of the Customize View page, click Edit.
  5. Select the type of view limitation you want to apply, and then click Continue.
  6. Provide or check appropriate strings or options to define the device types to include or exclude from the selected view, and then click Submit.
    Note: The asterisk (*) is a valid wildcard. Pattern limitations restrict views to devices for which the corresponding fields include the provided string.
