How do I automatically update snapshot views to show newly discovered resources?


Resources are automatically displayed in the Master view after being discovered. However, to view discovered resources in the snapshot view, the newly discovered resources must be added manually.

  1. Click a view tab to select a snapshot view.
    The name of a snapshot view is enclosed in brackets, for example: [NT West].
  2. Click TreeView | Add Discovered Resource.
  3. In the Add Discovered Resources dialog box, click to select the resources to update.
  4. Click OK.

Beginning In AppManager 5.0, a few feature called "dynamic views" has been added. A dynamic view uses one or more rules to describe the resources that should appear in the TreeView pane. A rule consists of a query statement that describes the objects you want to include and optionally, a query statement that describes any exceptions.

As your AppManager environment changes, dynamic views are automatically updated to contain the servers that match the rules for a view. Unlike standard views and snapshot views, a dynamic view uses rules to determine the resources that are displayed. For example, you cannot drag-and-drop servers in the TreeView pane or delete objects from a dynamic view; you must configure the rules that define the view.

You can organize the contents of a dynamic view into one or more dynamic groups. Each dynamic group is defined by a single rule and automatically updates its contents based on the contents of the dynamic view.

For information about dynamic views, refer to the section titled Chapter 4: Managing Systems in a Dynamic View, in the AppManager Administrator Guide.
