Filtering the AppStack

Updated: 3-9-2017

You can filter the AppStack by status, display name, and applications. You can also create filters selecting from all filtering properties. You can use these filters as layouts for different displays of AppStack data, useful for quickly troubleshooting the servers and virtual servers.

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

Filter options

By default, every object is displayed when you enter the AppStack Environment view. If you are concerned only about objects with a certain status, you can filter the view by selecting one or more statuses and then applying the filter. Additionally, you can filter objects based on various properties, as well as one or more keywords.

The filtering sidebar includes the following options:


Statuses only become available for filtering when an object in your environment is in that state. For example, if no objects have a status of Down, the Down status will not be available when filtering.

Creating filters

Creating filters using the AppStack filter properties gives you more options for refining the content displayed in the AppStack:

  1. Click My Dashboards > Environment, and then click [+] Add Filter Properties.
  2. From the pop-up menu, select one or more objects from the Orion Object drop down list.
  3. When done, click Add column. The new filter appears in the filter column.
