The Administration Console is a centralized configuration page that allows admin users fast access to all the controls they need to maintain the system.
To access the Administration console, you must log on to the BMC Remedy Mid-Tier as a Smart Reporting administrator. From the Mid-Tier, navigate to the Smart Reporting Console and choose the Administration tab and click Admin.
The Admin Console is split into the following panels:
Administration tour and help
This panel provides new administrators with a brief overview of the page and access to the Administration Tour storyboard and help.
The Administration Tour storyboard is designed to give users a quick run through the components available in the Admin Console.
By default, if Tutorial Content was loaded during installation, the tour storyboard will be available as sample content. If tutorial content was not loaded, or a custom storyboard is to be used for this purpose, the Administration Tour can be configured through Administration > Configuration > System Tab > General. Here the user can select any active storyboard to use.
The Need Help? section provides admin users with links to wiki documentation.
