Customize table content

The contents of the various data grids displayed in the web client can be sorted, rearranged, and grouped.

An arrow in the column heading identifies the sort criteria and order, ascending or descending, being used to display information.

NOTE: Selecting the F5 key to refresh your screen removes any sort criteria that you have applied.

Columns can also be resized within a data grid.

Change Auditor displays a default set of columns for the different pages displayed. However, a few pages allow you to display more data or hide a particular column.

1
Click Columns located above the column headings.

The expand properties button (right arrow) is displayed throughout the web client, and is located to the left of any container that can be expanded to show more items or collapsed to hide unneeded items. When the arrow is displayed pointing to the lower-right it is expanded, and when the arrow is pointing to the center-right it is collapsed.

Additional expand properties buttons that appear within an expanded container will be hidden if the original container is collapsed. When the original container is re-expanded, all expand properties buttons within the original will appear as they were last set.

Filter data

Traditional search capabilities provide the first phase of drilling down on details you may be seeking, but locating individual events typically requires more granular search capabilities and additional steps. Change Auditor provides advanced filtering options to modify the results of a search without changing the original search. With this capability, filtering can be performed on one or more columns of a result, ultimately reducing the need to build the same search multiple times with minor customizations.

Throughout the web client, you will see a filter icon in the right-hand corner of column headings. This icon provides data filtering options which allow you to filter and sort the data displayed.

Select Value field — click Select Value to display a list of options and select a value from this list.
4
Click Filter to filter the data according to your criteria.
NOTE: Selecting the F5 key to refresh your screen removes any filtering that you have applied.

Directory object picker

Throughout the web client, you will encounter the directory object picker which allows you to locate and select a directory object from your environment. This object picker is displayed in either a stand-alone dialog (for example, Select Active Directory Objects dialog) or as a page in a wizard and consists of the following tabbed pages:

Browse - use the Browse page to select a directory object from a hierarchical view of your environment
Search - use the Search page to search your environment to locate and select a directory object
