Searching and Filtering Resources

Use the Administration Console’s search and filter tools to quickly find the resources or objects within resources that interest you.

  1. Launch the Administration Console.
    • To populate the Administration Console with information on one or more resources: in the Perspective Resources view, select the resources and select Resource > Administration Console. This method is the most efficient because it displays only selected resources.
    • To populate the Administration Console with information on all the resources in the current perspective: from the main menu bar, select View > Open > Administration Console. If you are monitoring a large number of resources, the Administration Console may take a few minutes to load.
  2. (Optional) You can use the Administration Console’s tools to control which resources it displays:
    1. In the left pane, click Resource Selection.
    2. SCC refreshes the list of resources in the right pane with each selection you make in this pane. If you are making multiple selection changes, unselect Automatically refresh details to turn the refresh feature off.
    3. Select or unselect resources to include or eliminate them from Administration Console displays.
  3. To find a resource without navigating the hierarchy:
    1. In the left pane, select Navigation > Search.
    2. (Required) On the Search tab, select the resource type and object type of the resource you want to find.
    3. Enter a search string.
      The search string can be the full or partial name of a resource.
    4. (Optional) Select Exact match to find only the resource whose name is identical to the search string.
    5. Click Search.
      Results appear in the right pane.
      Note: Message rows in the right pane are placeholders for:
      • Failed requests – to retry, select the message row and click the drop-down arrow that appears to the right. Select Retry.
      • Slow-responding requests – SCC replaces these rows with real data as soon as it arrives.
      • Large result sets – to display, select the message row and click the drop-down arrow that appears to the right. Select Expand. The results might take a minute to appear.
      Hover the mouse over a message row to see a tooltip with more information.
    6. To further narrow your search, enter a filter string in the field at the top of any column of search results. For example, in a search for databases, enter wilma above the Device column to display only results associated with the device wilma.
