today I want to start the discussion about a new feature in the comming SA AppMan release - "Global Messages". So far - with the current Operations Console an operate got feedback about actions which he triggered in a small message box on the top of his OC window. These messages informed him for example that a request has been submitted for processing or a policy will now be activated.
We wanted to have this feature in the new Face as well - but we improved it silghtly. Introducing the "SA Global Messages". Now messages as result of an action of any operator will be queued and displayed on a message log window - which can be seen by any operator. So if "John" activates a policy "Bob" will notice it as well in his view of the "SA Global Message" queue and vice versa (don't worry - this can be turned of to the old behavior only to see messages to tasks which you have been kicked of).
In addition we add Important messages of global scope to this queue - such as "Log of domain <x> requires attention" etc. Or "domain <y> just changed its state to online/offline, etc.
Soon I will add a video of this new feature - what do you think ????
