3.13 Multi-Select Functionality

The Oracle VM Manager user interface allows you to select multiple objects from the management pane tables and perform actions on all selected objects at one time. Multi-select functionality supports all commonly used selection options and shortcuts. For instance, selecting the first object in the table, holding down the Shift key and selecting the last object in the table can be used to select all objects. Alternately, once you have selected any object within the table, you can use the Ctrl+A keyboard shortcut to select all remaining objects. To select individual objects, you can hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on the objects upon which you want to perform an action.

You can use the toolbar options or the right-click action menu options to perform an action on multiple selected objects. When an action affects multiple objects, the confirmation dialog for the action lists all of the objects that are affected.

All multi-select operations are performed serially, and not concurrently, so one job is submitted and performed at a time. For example, when starting multiple virtual machines, one virtual machine is started, then the next, and so on.
