4.5 Set IDs

The Set IDs panel opens when you click the Name of an Association Set on the Terminal ID Manager - Monitor IDs panel. The Set IDs panel shows the ID Summary and the specific pool IDs in that set.

4.5.1 ID Summary

At a glance, you can see how many licenses in this set are Allocated, Free, Held, or Timed Out. The Selection Criteria (defined in each pool) are not included.

Look in the table to identify which IDs have those attributes.

4.5.2 IDs

Each Pool in the set is listed with each of its IDs. By default, All IDs in the set are shown in the table. Use the Show menu and the Column Chooser to customize the display.

  • Pool: the name of a pool in this set

  • ID: name of an ID in a named Pool

  • User Name: the user that is associated with the allocated session. The value for the user name is based on the user that is logged on to the operating system.

  • Emulator Type: Terminal or Printer

  • Status: the status of the ID: Allocated, Free, Free but currently Held, Allocated but currently Held, Allocated and Timed Out, or Allocated and Timed Out and Held


Use the control buttons to Hold, Release, or Reclaim one or more specific IDs.

  • Hold: Set an administrative Hold on the selected IDs. The ID Status changes to Free/Hold.

    Any available (Free) IDs that are put on Hold will not be considered for allocation. If an ID is currently allocated, the client will be notified that the ID should be returned.

  • Release: Release any of the selected IDs that are in Hold status. The ID Status changes to Free.

  • Reclaim: This button displays if a pool is expanded to show IDs. When reclaimed, any selected ID that is allocated is changed to unallocated status.

    CAUTION:Use the Reclaim option with caution. Reclaiming an ID that is still in use can lead to synchronization problems.

When you select items to Hold, Release, or Reclaim, you will see a message to confirm the action.

On the Terminal ID Manager - Monitor IDs panel, click Refresh to update the table with your changes.
