Getting started with the Operations Interface


You can invoke the Operations Interface in the following ways:

From a Tasks widget. Typically, these might be displayed at your Home Page. For more information on widgets, please see the Dashboard Designer documentation.

Clicking the button displays the Operations interface in a separate tab in the RPI framework. Only one Operations interface tab may be open at a time.

From the quick access menu’s Operations menu. The Operations menu exposes the same option as described above.

Note that access to the Operations interface is controlled via the Operations functional permissions. There each tab within the interface has a corresponding permission. You must be associated with at least one of the Operations permissions to access the Operations interface. Association with an Operations permission provides access to the tab to which the permission refers.


A header is always displayed at the top of the Operations interface, and contains the following:

  • [Overall system health status]: this is displayed if the logged-in user is associated with the Operations – System Health functional permission. Overall system health is shown as one of the following:

    • All Systems Healthy: the RPI server is decreed to be healthy when no Warning or Attention Required issues are present in the System Health tab.

    • System Warnings Present: the system assumes this status when one or more Warning, and no Attention Required, issues are present in the System Health tab.

    • Attention is Required: one or more Attention Required issues are present in the System Health tab.

    • System Health has not been loaded: this message is shown when system health information is yet to be loaded – for example, immediately on initializing the Operations interface.

If the user is not associated with the functional permission, a generic ‘Operations’ header is shown instead.

Wiki Options: this button is shown to the right of the Operations interface header. It allows you to access or define an Operations Wiki page.

More details on Wiki Options can be found in the RPI Framework documentation.

Note that the Operations Wiki page is saved using configuration setting OperationsWikiPage ID.
