Quadrotech Archive Shuttle 10.3 - Administration Guide

Using the Archive Shuttle Web Interface

The Archive Shuttle User Interface is fully web-based. This allows archive migrations to be performed from anywhere in an organization from an Internet browser. It also means that archive migrations can be managed externally by partners of the migration organization. We recommend that HTTPS be enabled in that situation.

General Information

All pages share a common look and feel within the Archive Shuttle user interface.

On the left side is the main navigation area. It is used to jump from page to page, where every page controls a different aspect of Archive Shuttle.

Along the top are “Actions”, which are context sensitive to each page.

The following pages are available:

System Configuration

Allows an administrator to fine-tune the migration environment.

Grids/Tables

Filtering

Many of the grids / tables can be sorted and filtered as required.

Sorting can be achieved by clicking on the appropriate column header. Ascending versus descending order is achieved by clicking on the column heading a second time.

Filtering is provided on many columns by the means of the textbox below a column header. Data entered into this text box will cause Archive Shuttle to “filter by” on that column. The small “antenna” symbol behind the textbox can be used to change the type of filter, with the following being common options that are available:

·Begins with

·Contains

· Does not contain

· Ends with

· Equals

· Does not equal

It is possible to combine multiple column filters to further enhance the displayed data in the grid / table.

In order to apply the filter, which may contain multiple columns/selections click on the ‘Apply’ button at the right of the filter row.

A second filtering option is provided by the little “antenna” symbol behind the header name of a column. It provides a Microsoft ® Excel ® like filtering interface which lists the following values for an easy selection:

·(All): Does not apply a filter, displays All Items

·(Blanks): Only displays items that do not have a value

·(Non blanks): Only displays items that have a value, hiding blank values

·Values: Aggregated list of values from that column to choose from

Paging

All grids provide standard paging functionality. It is possible to see the current page, and select to view another page from the pager at the bottom of the grid.

Optionally, you can configure the page’s widgets to display compressed sizes.
