This article describes how to navigate through a nested map and view the map details.

For example, a United States map can include an icon for a child map of Oklahoma. You can click the Oklahoma object to open the child map.


Orion Core products 2013 or later


The total number of map objects, including those displayed on child maps, affects how fast the map loads in the Orion Web Console. If your maps load slowly, decrease the number of map objects.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console.
  2. Drag a map from the Maps group in the left pane onto the parent map.
  3. Position the map icon appropriately.

If you want the status of a child map to also indicate the status of its child objects:

  1. Right-click the child map icon and select Properties.
  2. Check Include child status on the Status properties page, and then click OK.
    The object status icon now includes the secondary status indicator.
