Manage lists

Lists are easy ways to manage and search for information in the everyday use of the SLM Web UI. There are three different types of lists;

List type

Description

List all

This type of list is available for mobile devices, users, agreements, and licenses. It displays all rows with selected information within the specific category. You can then sort and filter the information further.

Search

All search results are displayed using lists. Search results can be saved for later use.

For mobile devices, users, agreements, and licenses, the Search view is empty until you apply one or more search criteria.

For applications and computers, the Search view displays all rows with selected information within the specific category. You can then filter the information by applying one or more search criteria.

Reports

For more advanced reporting purposes pre-configured stock reports are available in the Report section. These reports can be filtered and scheduled for automatic delivery.

In lists, all rows are clickable and lead to the detail view of the selected computer, user, etc. When you return to the list, it will appear the same way as you left it, with any grouping and/or filtering applied.

All lists use paging by default, and they are cache-enabled which stores the initially loaded data. To reload/renew list contents, select Refresh on the context menu.

Filtering

List contents can be modified directly using filters:

  • Type the filter criterion in the box below the column header (no wildcard character is required) and wait a second while the list is reloaded.

    Only rows that match the filter are displayed.

Sorting

The list is by default sorted based on the first column, but can be sorted by another column.

  • To sort the list by another column than the first column, click the column header.

  • To reverse the sorting order, click the same column header once again.

A selected sort order is indicated by an arrow in the column header.

Grouping

To group list contents:

  • Drag column headers to the grouping area above the list. The list contents can be grouped in several levels, by dragging two or more column headers to the grouping area.

Details of the group are hidden by default. To expand the group, click the arrow to the left.
