Admin Panel includes necessary tools for working with OpenCelium. There are: App, Users, Groups, Invokers, Templates, Notification Templates, Update Assistant, Converter.
The applications menu displays a list of software that OpenCelium connected with. If they are installed and configured on your machine, you can open them clicking on the card and see relations to OC. If not, you will see the notification message, that this system is down. Also, the corresponded item shows its status: enabled or disabled.
For this moment, there are two items: Kibana and Neo4j. Kibana lets you visualize your scheduler jobs data. Neo4j is a graph database of the connections. Its UI helps you to see the whole picture of each connection via nodes and their relations.
Users represent directly clients of the application. List of users shows all users of the system including the authorized user. Each element in the grid view displays a first and a second name of the user and his email. The list view has an email and an assigned group. The current user logically cannot be deleted.
Going into view of the user you see more details: phone number, department, organization, salutation, avatar, last time of the login and the group information to which the user belongs. If the user did not upload his avatar you will see the default image.
Adding/Updating user consists of three steps: credentials, user details and user group. Credential step has three input fields: email, password and repeat password.
The are all required fields. The email must be valid and the length not more than 255 characters. Moreover, it is also a unique field in the application.
The password’s and repeat password’s fields length must be between 8 and 16 symbols. The last one should have the same value as the password field. User Details step has next fields: name, surname, phone number, organization, department, salutation, avatar. Name and surname are required fields.
User Group step has only one select field - user group and a readonly textarea with a description to selected item. Meaning of the user group you can find in the chapter Groups.
Group or User Group is a set of users with defined permissions. The grid view displays names of groups, whereas the list view has more information, like: description and components.
