Navigating BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel
All actions within the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel application occur on the main window. The window is divided to two main areas: the Workflow Explorer and the Workflow Canvas, which contains additional panes and fields after you select and execute a workflow. You can control the pane display by resizing the Workflow Explorer and the Workflow Canvas. To resize the Workflow Explorer and Workflow Canvas panes, click and drag the resize bar that divides the two panes.
The Workflow Explorer displays on the left side of the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel window. The Workflow Explorer pane lists the workflows for which you have read and write access. The workflows in the Workflow Explorer pane are organized by module and process directory.
The Search field is located in the Workflow Explorer.
The Workflow Canvas displays a graphical representation of the workflow on the right side of the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel window. The Workflow Canvas displays a maximum of five workflows at a time. Each workflow displays in a separate tab. When you select a workflow in the Workflow Explorer, it displays in the Workflow Canvas. If a complicated workflow is selected on the Workflow canvas you can resize the window for optimal display.
- Information pane: The Information pane is displayed when you display a workflow on the Workflow Canvas. Each workflow contains its own Information pane that includes information on selecting a control to run the workflow in Step or Run to Completion mode and a description on what inputs are required for the workflow.
- Activity Results pane: The Activity Results pane is displayed when you execute a workflow. It displays the workflow activity results. The Activity Results pane displays the workflow execution properties and the Activities Results table. The workflow execution properties section contains a comment defining the workflow execution state, fields describing who ran the workflow, the status, duration, start time, and end time of the workflow. The job ID displays when you click the Job ID button. The Activity Results table lists the steps in the workflow with a summary and details.
The information toggle is a checkbox located above and to the right of the Activity Results table. When you select the information toggle, information messages will appear in the Activity Results table if the workflow is designed to emit information messages. Information messages appear with an "I" icon.
