Structure

The orcharhino interface (see also Management UI) can be subdivided into two main areas, the menu area containing menus, and the content area displaying whatever page we are currently viewing.


The following image shows the menu area and its constituent parts:

management ui menu items
  • The Context Menu (1) is the first menu in the main navigation bar. Unlike other menus, it is named dynamically depending on the selected context.
  • The Monitor Menu is a menu in the main navigation bar (2).
  • The Content Menu is a menu in the main navigation bar (2).
  • The Containers Menu is a menu in the main navigation bar (2).
  • The Hosts Menu is a menu in the main navigation bar (2).
  • The Configure Menu is a menu in the main navigation bar (2).
  • The Infrastructure Menu is a menu in the main navigation bar (2).
  • The Administer Menu is the last menu in the main navigation bar (2). It includes menu items intended for orcharhino administration, rather than orcharhino usage.
  • The Notification Icon (3) will indicate whether there are any new notifications (with a red number), which can then be viewed by clicking on it.
  • The User Menu (4) allows the user currently logged in to configure her account settings, as well as to log out.

This documentation is structured in accordance with the above menu structure. Each menu is given a section within the Management UI chapter. Each menu item is given a subsection within the relevant menu section. Finally, each content page is given a subsubsection within the relevant menu item subsection.

In addition, there is also a section for Filter Bars, a recurring element on many pages:

  • An example filter bar, illustrating the existence of operators for advanced list filtering. (See also: Filter Bars).

Mobile optimized view

In case you are using the orcharhino management UI on a small display like on a mobile phone or table, the UI does automatically change to the mobile optimized view.

All menu items, including the The Context Menu and The User Menu, are then available on the navigation bar (1) after clicking the ‘hamburger button’ (= the three lines button).

Submenu behaviour

After clicking a menu item in the navigation bar, the submenu will be displayed on the same place. The name of the main navigation item which was entered, is displayed (1). Additionally, a ‘back button’ (left arrow) is displayed for switching back to the main navigation bar.
