One Identity Manager administration tools with their own user interface are given their own navigation view. The navigation defines specific entry points into the One Identity Manager tool's user interface and controls the user oriented navigation down to the selection of an object in the result list. You can set up the structure of the user interface navigation through a menu. There are different types of menu items with specific uses. You can design a multifaceted navigation by combining different types of menu items.
The navigation is mapped in User interface | User interface navigation in Designer. The type of menu item determines the availability and editability of the properties.
|Menu category||Menu categories are displayed at the navigation top level and provide a method of grouping the data to be managed from different viewpoints. Menu categories constitute entry points into the interface navigation view. Menu categories are displayed as categories in the user interface.|
|Fixed Menu Item||Fixed menu items are used to organize data more clearly within menu categories. These menu items are always shown in the navigation view. List properties can only be defined for fixed menu items. These specify how the table entries are displayed in the user interface result list.|
|Data-Dependent Menu Item||Data-dependent menu items are generated by a database query that returns several data sets as output. These menu items are therefore not individual menu items, but a set of menu items depending on the output of the database query. List properties can be defined for data-dependent menu items. These specify how the table entries are displayed in the user interface result list.|
|Detached Menu Item||Detached menu items are used to group other menu items or to define a main menu item for an application. For example, you can specify a web interface home page with a detached menu item. Detached menu items should always be created at the navigation top level. However, they do not appear in the administration tools navigation view.|
Links support the navigation configuration. They are used to reference frequently accessed menu items. Parts of the navigation interface that require an application several times, only need to be set up once. The referenced menu items are always shown in navigation interface as opposed to the links.
|Main Form Element||Main form elements are not menu items in the navigation view, but are used as the main elements in object overview forms. All child menu items are assigned to the main element.|
Task categories are displayed at the navigation top level and are used to group together action-based processes. Task categories are not mapped in the navigation view but on a special form in the administration tools.
Tasks are used to map single tasks within a task category. They are used, for example, as starting points for administration tool wizards. Tasks are always listed under a task category menu item. Task categories and their tasks are not displayed in the navigation view but on a special form.
|Statistics||This menu item is used to display statistics. Statistics are typically displayed in the info system. All statistics that are defined in one menu level can be displayed on one form or as individual menu items. Statistics can also be included as form elements.|
TIP: You can define display templates for menu items, object definitions, and table lists.
The display pattern is determined in the following order:
||TIP: Define the required variables in the menu item for the menu category. Variables are inherited within a hierarchical navigation. This means that variables at deeper levels of a hierarchy can be reused or overwritten. At run-time the actual value is passed to the variables.|
Use the User Interface Editor to edit the navigation of the One Identity Manager tools. All menu items are hierarchically displayed in the navigation overview.
