Target View

Purpose

Target status overview, target management and manual deployment.

Features explained

  • Target Status: check status of all targets.
  • Target list allows filters based on:
    • Assigned/installed Distribution Set (drag and drop a set on the filter icon on the top of the list).
    • Target update status: click 1-X status to reduce the list of targets that have one of them.
    • Target tag: click 1-X tags to reduce the list to targets that have one of them.
    • Name, description: use search button on the top of the list.
  • Distribution Set list allows filters based on:
    • Distribution Set tag: click 1-X tags to reduce the list of sets that have one of them.
    • Name, description: use search button on the top of the list.
  • Start rollout by drag and drop targets on a DS.
  • Target list supports CTRL-A for “select all”.
  • Delete sets, tags or targets by dragging them on delete icon.
  • Select Target to see Action History.
  • Bulk target upload: create bulk targets by upload.

Hints for bulk upload:

  • Expected file type : csv.
  • Expected file format : Each line with two values (ControllerID,Target Name). ControllerID is mandatory.
  • Example:
Controller_id_1,targetName1
Controller_id_2,targetName2

Tips and hints

  • Widgets can be maximized (button in upper right corner) in order to get more detailed information of an action execution.
  • Right click on an action allows to cancel it.
  • When an action is already canceled, right click on it allows to force quit it. The force quit function should be used very carefully. Because this function will only remove the action on the Rollouts server and will not sent any information to the target. When the target continues sending new messages to Rollouts this will cause an error. However this function could be very helpful, when the action is blocked by an corrupted target.
