Views Tab

The Views functionality of Altair Monitor allows an authenticated user to create a high-level table-based status report that shows only the items desired by the user.

My Views

Each user can create one or more views as well as set one view as the default view, which appears in My View page, as well as the My View section on the home page. A user can view, as well as set as default, any view created by any user, but cannot edit other users' views. Clicking on the Views tab navigates the user to the My View page:


Figure 1. My View Page

You cannot add or remove columns.

The following columns are shown on My View table:
Name
The name of the configured view.
Tags
The name of the tag name, such as BUILT_IN or a tag pattern (or a tag pattern match).
Features
The name of license feature being monitored.
In-Use
The number of license features in use.
Capacity
The number of licenses you have the capacity to use.
In-Use %
The percent of time the license feature is in use.
Actions
The four graphs, which show more detail. This includes the daily plot, the detailed plot, the efficiency histogram, and the heatmap.

All Views

This shows all configured views and enables you to set the default views and share your views with others, working from this list. The All Views option shows all existing views. Views can be edited and deleted from this page.



Figure 2. All Views
The following columns are shown on the List of Views table:
Name
The name of the configured view.
Owner
The user who created the view.
Filters
The name of the filter.
Default
The selected default view.
Actions
The options available to the user: Edit, Delete, Clear default and Set as default.
To view one of the views in the list, click on its name. To create a new view, enter a view name at the bottom of the page and click the Create New View button. This will bring up the View Editor:


Figure 3. Edit View Page

A view is comprised of one or more filters. Each filter requires a name and a definition that may include one or more of the following:

Feature
An actual license feature name, such as "MATLAB"
Feature pattern
A license feature pattern match, such as "MAT*"
Tag
An actual tag name, such as "MATHWORKS"
Tag pattern
A tag pattern match, such as "MATHWORKS_*".

For pattern matches, both the ? (single character match) and * (multiple character match) wildcard characters are supported.

Once all filter definitions have been specified for the view being edited, click Finished Editing to save the view. This will navigate the user back to the All Views page, which can then be used to set the new view as the default view, if desired.
