Work has been undertaken recently within the OMNIbus Web GUI development team to provide various enhancements to the Event Viewer component of Web GUI 8.1. As part of an Agile development, several user stories were created in order to bring some of the additional capabilities of the AEL into the Event Viewer.
Support for multiple data sources: http
This video shows how the Event Viewer portlet can be configured to display events from more than one data source in the same event list. It also shows how the combined events are displayed, and how high-level summaries such as severity counts and event groupings are handled.
Support for journal updates: http
This video shows the new journal window in Event Viewer and demonstrates how the window can be used to add new entries to the journal for an event. It also shows how the information window can be used to perform journal updates, plus how the journal window may be opened via a click action.
Support for handling multiple events via the information and journal windows: http
This video shows how the information and journal windows work when multiple events have been selected in the Event Viewer event list. It shows how the details for each of the selected events can be viewed, via navigation controls in the pop-up windows.
Other improvements in the information window: http
This video shows how the size and position of the information window can be restored between uses, plus some changes to the navigation labeling.
Support for a menu bar: http
This video shows how to configure the Event Viewer to display a menu bar along its top edge. It also explains what menu items are available, and how tools may be run from the menu, including cases where row selection is not required.
Support for clickable tool execution: http
This video demonstrates how the Event Viewer may be configured to run specific tools when events are single-clicked or double-clicked, and shows examples of this in action.
Support for interaction with the filter and view builders: http
This video shows how a user may launch into the Web GUI filter builder or view builder from the Event Viewer. It shows how this may be done in order to modify the definition of the filter or view being used, and how this takes effect in the event list.
Support for reconfiguring views whilst using Event Viewer: http
This video shows how the Event Viewer responds to modifications to the active view which may have been made by another user, for example via the View Builder or via the WAAPI command line tool.
Support for transient filtering: http
This video explains how the Event Viewer portlet may be configured to launch using a custom filter condition, rather than a pre-selected persistent Web GUI filter. It also shows the validation that is performed when such settings are used.
