Web Portal Performance Indicators in Windows Performance Monitoring

Web Portal Performance Indicators in Windows Performance Monitoring

When you install a web application, performance counters are registered, which provide information about the state of the application.

Performance indicators can be installed later.

NOTE: Prerequisites for this are that the web application is installed on a Windows Server and has sufficient permissions to offer performance counters. It may be necessary to add the application pool user account to the local group Performance monitoring user for this. Apart from this, the web application must be running in order to select the performance indicators.

For detailed information about monitoring with help from performance indicators, see the One Identity Manager Installation Guide.

Editing Captions

In order to customize text that is displayed in web applications, you must caption objects. Like all database objects, these are labeled either as default or custom objects. Caption objects are the only default objects that can be modified in a custom installation.

The advantage of being able to change these objects is that you do not need copy any modules. Moreover, it makes no difference whether a pre-defined caption object is referenced in a standard or custom module. The caption can be edited in both cases. Custom caption objects only occur in custom modules. For more information, see Multilingual Captions.

The following caption editing rules and procedures apply.

  • Caption objects can be referenced by more than one node. If this is the case, the changes also effect these nodes. To find the corresponding nodes, you currently require a search function. To do this, enter the key and search throughout the whole project.
  • In the case of multilingual web applications, you may have to modify the translations for these objects. That means, you must change several caption objects. You can find these objects with the search function in the Captions... dialog box.

To change the caption of a caption object

  1. Select the text you want to change in the preview.

    For example "Welcome" on the start page.

  2. Mark the Label control you want in the Properties window and select the entry Show definition object in the context menu.

    The Label node for the marked text "Welcome" is highlighted in the Object definition view in the definition tree view.

  3. Mark the highlighted node and select Move to extension | Add to configuration from the context menu.

    The definition tree view switches to the Configuration (custom) view.

  4. Select the Node editor view.
  5. Enter a caption in the Text text box for the caption required for the label placeholder as shown in the following SQL expression example.

    translate('#LDS#Caption required for the label')

  6. Compile the web application.

    You will see the modified Label control in the preview.

    NOTE: You must log in again if required.
