ViewPoint Manager

Defining ViewPoints

A ViewPoint builds a view of the active environment by retrieving and displaying data according to the criteria defined in the ViewPoint’s collection, hierarchy, and global filter definitions.

■ Collections determine the jobs to be loaded into memory.
■ Global filters determine which jobs to display.
■ Hierarchies determine the hierarchical structure in which to display jobs.

CONTROL-M/EM is supplied with a number of predefined ViewPoints, but you can create or modify definitions.

To define a ViewPoint
  1. In CONTROL-M/Enterprise Manager, choose Tools => ViewPoint Manager.

  2. In the ViewPoint Manager dialog box, do one of the following:
    1. To create a new ViewPoint definition, select the ViewPoints node and click New. Then, in the ViewPoint dialog box that opens, enter a name for the ViewPoint.

    2. To edit an existing ViewPoint definition, select the definition under the ViewPoints node and click Edit.

  3. In the ViewPoint Properties dialog box, do the following:
    1. Enter a description for the ViewPoint (optional).
    2. Select a collection for the ViewPoint.
    3. Select a global filter for the ViewPoint.
    4. Select a Hierarchy definition for the ViewPoint.
    5. After selecting the hierarchy, select the Initial Level of the Hierarchy to display when the ViewPoint is opened.
    6. By default, the highest hierarchy level nodes are displayed in when the ViewPoint is opened.
    7. Click OK.
