Changing Your Selection

You can add or remove objects using the Change Selection feature.

To access the Change Selection pane:

In the Selection section of the work area, select the Change selection radio button.

The Change Selection pane displays, which consists of two sections:

·the Available Items section lists all of the objects available for selection (as determined by the scope of your original selection)

·the Selected Items section lists currently-selected objects.

To modify the list of available items:

Use the information in the following table to determine the appropriate action to take.

If you want to ...

Then ...

expand the scope of available items to encompass all of the site collections for which you are an administrator

check the Expand Scope box.

NOTE:  If you originally selected the farm, multiple Web applications, or site collections within multiple Web applications, Expand Scope is checked by default and all available items in the farm display.  

narrow the scope of available items

·enter a full or partial site Name and/or URL , and

·click the magnifying glass icon ().

NOTE:  By default, ControlPoint uses real-time data for this type of hierarchical search.  However, to enable faster searches in large environments, ControlPoint Application Administrators can configure the application to use cached data for hierarchical searches.

To modify the Selected Items list:

1Uncheck the "include all children" box to the left of each object whose scope you want to modify.

2In the Available Items list, select each object that you want to include. Use the information in the following table for guidance.

If you want to ...

Then ...

select multiple items individually

hold down the [Ctrl] or [Shift] key and highlight each item you want to add.

immediately add an object and all of its children to the Selected Items column

highlight the item, then right-click and choose Add Item and All Children.

select an object and its immediate children (for example, a site collection and its root site only)

highlight the item, then right-click and choose Highlight Immediate Children.  

TIP:  You can use this option as a time-saver if you want to add most, but not all of the selected child items.  After highlighting the item you can then individually de-select those that you want to exclude.

3To add the highlighted item(s) to the selection list, do one of the following:

·drag and drop the item(s) to the Selected Items column.  ControlPoint will automatically place them in the correct location in the tree.


·click the [Add] button.

Note that if a checkbox displays to the left of a selected item (indicating that you want to include all child items), those child items do not display explicitly in the Selected Items list.

If you uncheck this box then add child items using the procedure above, however, each item you add will display explicitly in the list.

To apply your selection to the current operation:

Click [Apply Selection Change].
