SharePoint Hierarchy

When Hierarchy is selected in the left navigation frame, you can access the core functionality for managing your SharePoint environment.  The navigation tree is designed so that you can visualize the hierarchy of the farm, including:

·the site collections, sites, and subsites managed by ControlPoint Online

·within each site, its associated lists, groups, and individual users.

NOTE:  Only site collections for which you are a Site Collection Administrator are visible.  

From most levels of the hierarchy you can invoke a right-click menu and access SharePoint pages and ControlPoint value-added features.

Special Considerations for Multi-Farm Environments

If all farms in a multi-farm environment have the same edition of ControlPoint (Standard, Native, or Online) installed, any one of the farms can be the home farm, and all farms will display in the SharePoint Hierarchy, which enables you to perform operations on multiple farms.  

However, for multi-farm environments that have different editions of ControlPoint installed, some limitations apply if you want to be able to display multiple farms in the SharePoint Hierarchy and perform multi-farm operations.  

If the multi-farm installation ...

Then ...

includes ControlPoint Standard along with Native and/or ControlPoint Online

a Standard farm must be the home farm.

consists of only Native and ControlPoint Online

a Native farm must be the home farm.

NOTE:  Regardless of whether or not all farms display in the SharePoint Hierarchy, you will always be able to change the active farm by selecting from the Available Farms drop-down.

Available Farms Mixed Editions

Additionally, in a multi-farm environment, the ribbon-style menu will be unavailable.
