We've given the entire SolarWinds Orion user interface an overhaul, and updated the navigation scheme and the notification feature.
The first time you log in, you'll notice that we've changed the location of the product tabs. All of your products and views are now located under My Dashboards.
Single product deployment
We have designed an option that you can use to expand or collapse the Web Console menu.
Expanded menu example
An expanded menu shows all products and views on a single page. This option works just fine for limited deployments of SolarWinds Orion, but after you start adding more products, you'll need a scroll bar to help you find the right dashboard.
To make better use of the My Dashboards space, click Collapse at the bottom.
Collapsed menu example
A collapsed menu uses a slide-out menu to provide access to views. If you have multiple products, a collapsed menu makes navigation easier and scales better in large deployments of SolarWinds.
Click Expand at the bottom of the page to switch to an expanded menu.
We've moved important options to the main menu, including Alerts, Reports, and Settings.
Administrators can now more easily access the menu editor. Just click the Configure button under My Dashboards, and then add and remove menu items as usual.
You can also control the items that are shown on the Alerts & Activity menu.
We have redesigned the notifications feature so that messages are now displayed in a drop-down widget instead of across the length of the Orion Web Console. The new notifications feature takes less room on the page, which reduces clutter.
To view notifications, click the notifications icon located in the upper right of the Orion Web Console.
In this release we have given the user interface an overhaul. The design of the new user interface:
