The Orion Web Console provides different resources that you can add to a view, and each resource has an Edit button, so you can change things such as the title, and other features. Different types of resources have different things you can edit.

The example below shows how to sort and filter objects in resources.

Change resource name and number of displayed objects

To change a resource name, click Edit, and adjust the Title.

To change the number of objects in Top N resources, click Edit, and change the Maximum Number to Display.

Sort objects in resources

The following example shows you how to sort a tree resource according to properties.

When completed, nodes in the resource are grouped according to the selected properties.

  1. Click Edit in the resource.
  2. Select a property in the Level 1, 2, and 3 lists.

  3. Define how you want to display objects that do not have the selected property.

Filter objects displayed in a resource

You can use custom SWQL filters to define what objects a resource should display, hiding any irrelevant objects.

In this example, the Top Interfaces by Traffic resource will be customized not to show WAN and Core links.

Click Show Filter Examples to display examples of SWQL queries, and node and interface properties that can be used in the query.

  1. Click Edit in the resource.
  2. Enter a SWQL query.

  3. Click Submit.
