Tour the Administrative Console
The Administrative Console has been updated to a browser-based console for the Databridge 7.0 release. The new Administrative Console allows authorized users to manage Databridge Client Process and Clone command runs, to customize data sources, and to monitor client runs and Client Manager services. You can accomplish each phase of the replication process by using menu commands and options.
Administrative Console Working Areas
The Administrative Console has distinct working areas that are divided into multiple groups of pages displaying different types of information and configuration options. At the top level of the Administrative Console, you can select the menu icon () to expand the left-side navigation.
Left Navigation Menu
Below are the options on the left-side navigation menu. See below for a description of each working area of the Administrative Console.
The Dashboard provides a customizable table view of status information, properties and statistics for Process and Clone command runs controlled by the various Client Managers. For more information, see the Dashboard Page.
The Servers page lists all the servers known to the Administrative Console. These servers are saved in a file, which gets read when the Administrative Console server is started. The file is updated when a server is added or removed from this list. The Dashboard page uses this list to find all the Client Managers that are monitored.
The Authentication page allows administrators to setup authentication to the Administrative Console. Administrators can either configure LDAP, or create userid/password pairs when using Simple Authentication. Users other than the System Administrator (dbridge) are only allowed to change their own passwords using this left menu item when Simple Authentication is being used. The other actions in the dialog are not allowed for users.
The System Administrator can configure LDAP, add, modify and remove users when using Simple Authentication, and change any user's password. For detailed information on setting up and configuring the Administrative Console, see the Authentication page.
Opens the Administrative Console Help in a different browser tab.
This is the About page for the Administrative Console that displays the version of the software and other relevant information.
