Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

A view is the primary mechanism for displaying data. In the console, many views are available to help you visualize your network.
|Table Views||Present summary information for a list of objects in a sorted order. Examples include: viewing a list of incidents sorted by Status and filtered by Lifecycle State.|
|Map Views||Display graphical relationships among objects.|
|Dashboard Views||Display at-a-glance data in the form of panels.|
To access a view, select a workspace and then click the view that you want to display. Some views are also accessible from the console's Actions menu. See Use Actions to Perform Tasks for more information.
You can also right-click any object in a table or map view to access the items available within the Actions menu.
Some NNMi users can delete nodes and other objects from the NNMi database (depending on the assigned NNMi Role). Any node that has been deleted appears as a transparent icon to all NNMi users until their map is refreshed using the Refresh icon. After Refresh, the deleted node is removed from the map. NNMi does not automatically refresh the connectivity or set of nodes in a map view, except on the Initial Discovery Progress and Network Overview maps.
From a view, you can:
- Select Multiple Objects
- Refresh a View ( )
- Refresh Node Status on a Map ()
- Stop Periodic Refresh of a View ()
- Use the View Toolbars to Display a View in a New Window ()
Depending on the NNMi Role to which you are assigned, you may or may not be allowed to create or delete instances of some objects from the view. See Help → Help for Administrators for more information.
