User Interface


Prime Collaboration is a thin-client, web-based application comprising the Prime Collaboration Assurance and Prime Collaboration Provisioning applications. Prime Collaboration user interface (UI) components are visible throughout the UI and enable you to set up filters, see page details in a quick view, and perform global searches.

You can install Prime Collaboration Assurance and Prime Collaboration Provisioning as standalone systems. For information about client requirements, see Cisco Prime Collaboration 9.5 Quick Start Guide.

Filters

You can use the Filter feature to display specific information on the Prime Collaboration user interface. The Filter icon is provided wherever the data is displayed in a tabular format.

The following are the types of filters available on the Prime Collaboration client:

Quick Filter

Advanced Filter

Preset Filter

The quick filter and advanced filter are case insensitive. For these filters, you can also use the following wildcard expressions:

Question mark(?)—Match any one character.

Asterisk (*)—Match zero or more characters.

Quick Filter

This filter allows you to narrow down the data inside a table by applying a filter to a specific table column or columns. The operator used with this filter is Contains. To apply different operators, use the Advanced Filter option.

To launch the quick filter, choose Quick Filter from the Filter drop-down menu.

To clear the quick filter, click Filter.

Advanced Filter

This filter allows you to narrow down the data in a table by applying a filter using multiple operators, such as Does not contain, Does not equal, Ends with, Is empty, and so on.

You choose the filter pattern (table column names) and operator from the drop-down menu. In addition, you must enter filter criteria based on data available in the Prime Collaboration database.

Launching the Advanced Filter and Saving Filter Criteria

To launch the advanced filter, choose Advanced Filter from the Filter drop-down menu.

You can save the filter criteria used in the Advanced filter.

To save the filter criteria:


Step 1 From the Filter drop-down menu, choose Advanced Filter.

Step 2 Enter advanced filter criteria.

Step 3 Click Go and then click the Save icon.

Step 4 In the Save Preset Filter window, enter a name for the Preset Filter and click Save.

To clear the Advanced Filter, click the Filter button.


Preset Filter

Prime Collaboration provides predefined keywords to filter data. In addition, the saved advanced filter criteria are also listed in the Preset Filter drop-down list. See Advanced Filter for details on how to save the filter criteria.

This feature is available on some pages; for example, Device Management, Alarm browsers, and Event browsers. To launch a preset filter, choose the available values from the Show drop-down list.

Predefined Filters

Prime Collaboration provides a set of predefined filters that enable you to filter the data in a table.

Quick View

The quick view icon appears when you rest your mouse pointer on a table, specific table columns, or a topology pane. You can use quick view to cross-launch a page that you want to view in detail. In Prime Collaboration Assurance, this option is not available for administrative tasks, reports, or diagnostic views. It is available for Prime Collaboration Provisioning when you order a product.
