Introduction

This section gives detailed information about how to use the Grid displayed on the Engine UI. UI for Domains, Classifiers, Profiler Sets, Roles, Inventory, Rule Sets, etc displays information using a Grid structure. Each implemented Grid supports functionality like sorting, filtering, pinning, etc. Each subsection gives information about how to use Grid functionalities.

Sorting

To identify if the column supports sorting or not

  • Hover on the column name. If the :handpointer: icon appears i.e. column header is clickable then the column is sortable.

Follow these steps to sort the grid based on any one of the grid column data.

  • Click on the column header on the grid. The records in the grid will be sorted based on the data in that column.

  • Click on the column again to change the sorting order. A vertical directional arrow symbol indicates the sorting order applied (↑ Ascended, ↓ Descending, and blank default sorting order).

In the case of grouping, sorting is applied within each group.

  • Children of groups can be collapsed and expanded by clicking on the down arrow icon beside each group name.

  • The count next to the group name in parentheses shows the total number of children under that group.

Filtering

To identify if the column supports filtering or not,

  • Hover on the column header of the grid and click the ꠵ icon that appears in the right corner.

  • To remove a filter criteria, click on the cross mark on the applied filter criteria value listed.

  • To remove all filter criteria click on the Reset button.

  • These filters will be persisted in the browser cache until the user resets it or clears the browser cache.

  • On some screens, Grid doesn’t display filter in chips, and filters are not persisted i.e. Monitoring Single Job.

In the case of grouping, filtering is applied within each group.

If the applied filters produce no result, an option is presented to reset the filters. If only one filter needs to be removed then cancel the bottom sheet and remove the specific filter.

There are 4 types of filters which are displayed according to the data of the column.

  1. Text Filter with option [ “contains“ ]

  2. Number filter with options [ “Equals”, “Greater than”, “Greater than or equals”, “Less than”, “Less than or equals”, “Not Equals” ]
