The Common Management Portal work area lists comprehensive information and displays different activity options. The number and selection of information and activity items depends on the entry you have chosen in the navigation tree. The information area above each list displays a description of the information and actions.
The work area displays the actual information about the entry selected in the navigation tree in the form of lists.
You can sort the list elements in ascending or descending order.
If a list cannot be completely displayed in the work area due to its length, it will extend over several pages. You can then use the following control elements to navigate between the pages.
General Icons / Buttons
The general icons and buttons shown in the work area are dependent on the selection of the entry in the navigation tree. The icons/buttons shown below are possible and have the following meanings:
Displays information about the topic represented in the work area in the information bar. A note also appears here when you enter the wrong value.
Invokes the help for the topic concerned.
Updates the page shown (for example, when displaying list entries).
The notification area describes which information is currently displayed in the work area. If you enter an invalid value in an entry field, the notification area will also indicate the type of input error. The relevant entry field appears in a red frame.
You can use the action menu to initiate specific functions for a list entry in a list (e. g. edit a user). The action menu appears always on the right-hand margin of a list entry. Whether an action menu is provided in a list or not depends on the list selected. Most of the functions in the action menu can also be reached with the buttons displayed in the work area. In instances where there are two ways of initiating a function, this manual describes the button procedure.

Opens the action menu for the associated list entry
You can use the filter function in the work area to filter displayed lists according to a specific search item. Setting a filter reduces the total number of items displayed and makes it easier to identify those desired.
Within the search text only the wildcard * is allowed. It can be used instead of several arbitrary charcters. Logical operators are not supported.
Besides filtering by a specific search term, it is also possible to select certain items with a check mark. These marked items can then be displayed with Show selected items ()
. If this selective display is no longer desired, all items can be displayed again with Show all items
There are many work area elements that open additional dialogs in which you can set component-depending values. In these dialogs the names of the fields where entries are mandatory are bolded.
