26.1 Personalizing a Cloud Control Page

Pages in Cloud Control are laid out in a columnar format. Each column contains one or more regions, each of which contains data rendered as a bar chart, graph or other visual component.

You can modify the layout of columns within a page, as well as select the regions to display within each column, enabling you to personalize how the data on a page is arranged and displayed.

To personalize a page:

  1. Navigate to the page you want to personalize.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Select Personalize Page from the menu item that displays the username of the currently logged-in user, just to the left of the Log Out menu item. In Figure 26-1, the menu item displays the SYSMAN user name.

    • Or, click the “Personalize Page" icon on the right-hand side of the page, shown just above the “Page Refreshed" time stamp, as shown in Figure 26-2.

    Note that the menu item or icon will only be enabled if the page you are currently on can be personalized.

  3. You are now in page edit mode. Click the Change Layout button. A graphical menu of column layout options opens.

  4. Select the column layout you want to use.

  5. Next, add a region to each column. Click the Add Content button for a specific column. The Resource Catalog, which contains available components used to display data, opens.

  6. Select a region, then click Add to add it to the column. Note that you can “stack" regions on top of one another.

  7. Once a region has been added to a column, you can:

    • Customize the region. See Customizing a Region for details.

    • Click the View Actions menu in the upper right corner of the region to move the region up or down within the column.

    • Drag the region from one column to another.

  8. Click Close to save your changes.
