Web Administration Interface

The FlowForce Server Web administration interface is the front end of FlowForce Server from where you administer the server and configure jobs. You can access the Web administration interface from a Web browser at the configured address and port.

 

The following sections describe the menu items available in the Web administration interface.

 

Home
Configuration
Log
Administration
Help

 

Note:Access to resources and actions available from the Web administration interface is driven by a user access control mechanism. This means that you can access and modify configuration data as long as your assigned permissions allow it. Similarly, you can perform actions (and see the corresponding menu items) if you have been granted the corresponding privilege.

 

Home

Displays the list of currently running and recently finished jobs, see Monitoring Job Execution. The "Active Triggers" section displays any currently enabled triggers, see Managing Triggers.

 

To refresh the list of jobs or triggers, click Reload Grid gui_refresh.

 

Configuration

Displays the currently defined FlowForce containers, jobs, credentials, and functions. To view the contents and further information about any object, click the corresponding record.

 

The following containers are available by default:

/public
/system
/RaptorXML (if you have licensed RaptorXML Server)

 

For further information about containers, see Understanding Containers.

 

From the Configuration page, you can also manage containers, jobs, credentials, and functions, and set permissions on containers, provided you have the relevant access rights.

 

Log

Displays the server log. The displayed log entries include both server-related and job-related messages and depend on your access rights.

 

You can narrow the results by time, job name and the minimum severity (info, warning, error).

 

You can sort the results in ascending or descending order by any of the following criteria:

 

Date

Specifies the date when the entry was logged.

Severity

Specifies the severity of the logged entry. Valid values:

Info
Warning
Error

Module

Specifies the internal FlowForce Server module from where the logged entry originates.

User

Specifies the name of the user associated with the logged entry.

InstanceID

Specifies the system instance ID of the logged entry (if applicable).

Message

Specifies the message text associated with the logged entry.

 

To refresh the server log, click Refresh gui_refresh.

 

To export the contents of the log, click Export. All records that match the filter criteria will be exported as a as a zipped JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) file. When you click Export, you may either be prompted to save the zip archive to a local directory, or it will be downloaded to your browser's default download directory. The maximum number of records that can be exported is 100,000 (this limitation is imposed by performance reasons). Note that, for the duration of the export, the Web interface remains unresponsive to any other HTTP requests.

 

Administration

From the Administration area, you can perform actions to related server configuration and user management. The Administration area consists of the following menu items:

 

Users

Allows you to create, delete, and maintain users, including changing their privileges, roles, and password policy. For further information, see Managing User Access.

 

Roles

Allows you to create, delete, and maintain access control roles. For further information, see Users and Roles.

 

Password policies
