Schemes window

Contributors

The Schemes window displays the available schemes and enables you to manage the schemes. OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) uses schemes to acquire data relevant to an environment.

A scheme represents the data model for a system. The data model is a collection of dictionary entries. You can define a scheme and then define a data source type. The data source defines how the data is acquired and the scheme is populated. For example, a vc scheme contains data relevant to your virtual environment, such as virtual machines, hosts, and datastores.

Schemes table

The Schemes table lists the available scheme entries. Each entry is identified as one of the following:

  • community certification - content created by users

  • ps certified icon wfa - content developed by Professional Services (PS), which is available only on custom installations made by PS

  • community certification - packs developed by users

  • lock icon wfa - content created by users that is locked

  • netapp certified - NetApp-certified content

You can customize the table display by using the filtering and sorting features available for each column, as well as by rearranging the column order.

  • Filter icon enables or disables filtering for the entire table. A red "x" appears over the icon if filtering is disabled.

  • Double-clicking Filter icon clears and resets the filtering selections.

  • Filter icon on each column header enables you to filter based on the content of the columns. Clicking Filter icon in a column allows you to filter on a specific item from the drop-down list or on all available items.

  • Clicking the column header toggles between ascending and descending order of sorting. You can identify the applied sort order by the sort arrows (Sort up icon for ascending and Sort down icon for descending).

  • To rearrange the location of columns, you can drag and drop columns to place them in any required order. However, you cannot hide or delete any of these columns.

  • Clicking the Search filter text box allows you to search for specific content. In addition, you can search using supported operators for the applicable column type, Alphabetic or Numeric.
