    How to find a system

    This howto illustrates the different ways to navigate in AirVantage to work on a subset of systems fleet and find any system in your company or your partner companies.

    Firstly, it shows how to change the context to see the systems of a partner. Then, it filters the table using labels and finally focus on the system find which allows you to go directly on any system of your company or your company’s partners.

    Step 1: Navigate into AirVantage

    When you log in to AirVantage, you start in the context of your company displayed in red. You can see all the systems of this company and only these systems.

    Change your company context

    If your company doesn’t have any partner, you can follow this tutorial by skipping this step.

    You can change the company you want to work into by doing the following:

    • Click on the company
    • Select Change company
    • In the dialog box, type your partner name to filter the list and click on the partner name.

    AirVantage supplies several keyboard shortcuts allowing to navigate quickly between activities.

    • Hit : key to display the cheatsheet. The cheatsheet contains direct link to all the most used sections for your daily work and displays the keyboard shortcuts youcan use.
    • Hit on g and m, the system Monitor page is displayed.

    Step 2: Filter using Labels

    Add a label

    Labels can be:

    • added when creating an entity
    • changed by selecting an entity (system, subscription, gateway, …) and clicking on the Change Label icon
    • deleted from the Labels section into the Configure activity

    You can use labels to group entities: multiple labels can be set for one entity, one label can be assigned to multiple entities.

    Add a label to multiple systems

    • Select several Systems
    • Click on the Change Labels in the More menu
    • Type the Label name for your group of systems

    Add a label for one system

    No you have associated a label to a subset of your systems, you can do the same with a single system. In the system table:

    • Click on the Change Labels icon on the system line in the system table
    • Type the Label name for your system

    Now let’s use your labels!

    Filter the entities in all the activities

    You can add a context label to filter the entities you will see in the user interface. In the example, the context label field indicates that all data are displayed: in other words, data are not filtered. You can add a label you defined to filter what you see.

    • Once you are in your partner company, click on the Everything button on the top left.
    • Type a label name into the field.

    All the entities (systems, gateways, susbcriptions, …) in all the activities will be filtered with this label name!

    If you want to remove this filter, just click on the cross on the filter button.

    Filter the entities table

    Filters are one most useful feature of the AirVantage user interface. You can use filters to find a system or operation among hundreds to thousands of them with multiple criteria. Some filters are a predefined list of values:

    • Others are free text.
    • Click on the red cross next to Filters to reset all filters, or on the grayed one next to a selected filter to remove it.

    Note: you can use joker symbol for free text.

    Now you know how to create a specific view of your entities, you may want to reuse them later bybookmarking them.

    • You can bookmark:
      • activities without any filtering:

    For US Data Center For European Data Center

    • a specific page using filters - for example, if you want to filter systems by Best RSSI level, enter: (example for NA Data Center)

    in your bookmark list. If you want to display systems in Ready State only, enter: (example for EU Data Center).

    Example of a useful bookmark, to jump directly to systems which did not communicate and whose last signal strength received was Poor:

    You can use the interface to build the view. For example, you can click on a pie section into any pie widget to filter the table. Finally, bookmark the url of your view.

    Display in Multiple Tabs

    You can display information from different companies in as many tabs in your browser as needed. The company and context label are part of the URL.

    The [Ctrl + Activity] key combination allows you to open an activity in a new tab of your browser.

    Step 3: System finder

    If you manage a lot of systems in your company or with several partner companies, you cannot browse all the companies to find your system.

    You can use the system finder:

    • Click on the glass in the top bar

    If your system is in your current company

    • The dialog box allows you directly to find any system in your current company by using the system name
    • Filter the system list by typing a system name
    • Click on it when found: you go directly in the System’s view page
    • If system name is not sufficient, you can use the next section.

    If your system is in any partner company

    • Click on the global search link in the bottom right corner of the system finder dialog box.
    • Use filter to search your system using several criteria: You can look for systems with IMEI/ESN, Name, Serial Number, Subscription ESN / ICCID, IMSI/MIN, MSISDN/MDN or MAC Address) in your company and also all your partners if you have rights to do it.
    • Multiple criteria can be added to refine the search if needed.

    That’s it! Now you know how to find your systems and navigate into the interface to browse your system information.
