About the BIG-IQ system user interface

The BIG-IQ system interface is composed of panels. Each panel contains objects that correspond to a BIG-IQ feature. Depending on the number of panels and the resolution of your screen, some panels may be collapsed and show as colored bars on either side of the screen. You can cursor over the collapsed panels to locate the one you want, and click the panel to open. To associate items from different panels, click an object, and drag and drop it onto the object with which you want to associate it.

Filtering for associated objects

The BIG-IQ system helps you easily see an object's relationship to another object, even if the objects are in different panels.
  1. To display only items associated with a specific object, hover over the object, click the gear icon, and then select Show Only Related Items. The screen refreshes to display only associated objects in each panel.
  2. To highlight only items associated with a specific object, hover over the object, click the gear icon, and then select Highlight Related Items. The screen refreshes, highlighting only associated objects in each panel, and displaying unassociated objects in a gray font.
  3. To remove a filter, click the X icon next to the filtered object in a panel.

Searching for specific objects

The BIG-IQ system interface makes it easy to search for a specific object. This can be especially helpful as the number of objects increase when you add more users, applications, servers, and so forth.
  1. To search for a specific object, in the Filter field at the top of the screen, type all or part of an object's name.
  2. Click the Apply button. The screen refreshes to display only the objects associated with the term you typed in the Filter field.
  3. To further refine the filter, type another term into the Filter field, and click the Apply button again.
  4. To remove a filter term, click the X icon next to it.

Customizing panel order

You can customize the BIG-IQ system interface by reordering the panels.
  1. Click the header of a panel and drag it to a new location, then release the mouse button. The panel displays in the new location.
  2. Repeat step 1 until you are satisfied with the order of the panels.
