Working with Projects Using the BUI

The Projects UI is accesssed from "Shares -> Projects". This presents a list of all projects on the system, although projects can be selected by using the project panel or by clicking the project name while editing a share within a project.

Project Fields

After navigating to the project view, you will be presented with a list of projects on the system. Alternatively, you can navigate to the shares screen and open the project panel for a shortcut to projects. The panel does not scale well to large numbers of projects, and is not a replacement for the complete project list. The following fields are displayed for each project:

Table 12-23  Project Fields
Name of the share. The share name is an editable text field. Clicking on the name will allow you to enter a new name for the project. Hitting return or moving focus from the name will commit the change. You will be asked to confirm the action, as renaming shares requires disconnecting active clients.
The total size of all shares within the project and unused reservation.

The following tools are available for each project:

Table 12-24  Project Icons
Edit an individual project (also accessible by double-clicking the row).
Destroy the project. You will be prompted to confirm this action, as it will destroy all data in the share and cannot be undone.

Editing a Project

To edit a project, click on the pencil icon or double-click the row in the project list, or click on the name in the project panel. This will select the project, and give several different tabs to choose from for editing properties of the project.

The name of the project is presented in the upper left corner to the right of the project panel. The name of the project can also be changed by clicking on the project name and entering new text into the input. You will be asked to confirm this action, as it will require disconnecting active clients of the project.

Usage Statistics

On the left side of the view (beneath the project panel when expanded) is a table explaining the current space usage statistics. If any properties are zero, then they are excluded from the table. The majority of these properties are identical between projects and shares, though there are some statistics that only have meaning for projects.

Static Properties

The left side of the shares view also shows static properties when editing a particular project. These properties are read only, and cannot be modified.

Creating Projects

  1. To create a project, view the list of projects and click the image:Add item button.
  2. Alternatively, the clicking the "Add..." button in the project panel will present the same dialog. Enter the project name and click apply to create the project.
