Manage Tab

The manage tab provides a facility for the administration of the following items:

  • Assets
  • IP devices
  • Tags for assets and IP devices
  • Mapping of IP devices against assets
  • Integrations (mapping of IP devices/assets against polling engines)

Additionally, the manage tab provides the following functions:


Accessing the Manage Tab

The manage tab found by selecting the appropriate tab in the Dashboard. In step-by-step form:


Click the three chevrons to slide from the Map Page to the Dashboard Page


Click the “Manage” link to change to the manage tab


Interacting with the Manage Tab

The manage tab can be viewed in three different ways:

  • List Overview (default)
  • Asset Table
  • IP Device Table


List view

The list view shows two columns:

  • All Assets
    • Displays a list of assets (physical containers, viewable on the map) for this site
  • Orphaned IP Devices
    • Displays a list of IP devices that are not allocated to assets

Both lists have a “Search” box at the top; you can enter text in here and the list will become filtered by that criteria, here are some examples:

  • “DT” in the asset search box will show only assets where DT features in it's name (or the name of it's child IP devices)
  • “Dump Truck” in the asset search box will show only assets of type “Dump Truck”
  • “aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff” in the asset search box will show only assets with an IP device that have that MAC address

You get the idea- it's quite versatile.

IP devices can be dragged and dropped between assets or between assets and the “Orphaned IP Devices” list; this is how assets and IP devices are mapped together.

WARNING: There is no history (beyond the activity log) for the mapping of assets and IP devices; if you move an IP device to another asset, that history is now regarded as being against that asset.

For example, if you move the AP7161 for DT033 onto DT045, if you go back in time, DT045 (the asset) will be drawing connection lines that don't make sense (because it has the statistics for the AP7161 that was on DT033 at that time).

The manage page can also be organised into a table view, displaying IP devices or assets. Rows can be searched and clicked on for interactions, but the mapping of IP devices to assets must be done in the list view.

IP Device Table

The IP device table view shows a number of columns:

The columns maybe sorted and filtered and the IP devices and assets are clickable (opening the relevant edit pane).

Asset Table

The asset table view shows a number of columns:

The columns maybe sorted and filtered and the IP devices and assets are clickable (opening the relevant edit pane).


Exporting to CSV

Both the asset table and the IP device table views expose an “export to CSV” feature; this feature can be used to distil the table into a CSV file for easy distribution.

In both instances, the tables can be exported to CSV by hitting the link toward the top left of the table:

Here is an example of an exported IP device table:

And here is an example of an exported asset table:


Undeleting of assets and IP devices

Assets and IP devices that have previously been deleted may be undeleted through the “deleted assets” and “deleted IP devices” links:

Locate the desired asset or IP device and press the undelete icon to the right:
