Information display settings

What information is displayed in the Network tree can be chosen in the Tree display settings menu on the Network tree toolbar.

For instance, setting hostnames as node names, selecting IP addresses for the additional field and enabling the Show number of assets in groups option will result in the Network tree looking like this:

Both node names and the additional field are used when searching the Network tree.

Network node names

A variety of values can be displayed as the node name: network names, IP addresses, inventory numbers, usernames, etc.

If Alias is set as the node name, network nodes can be renamed by choosing Rename from the individual context menu or by pressing F2. The asset's alias will be changed. Another way to do this is via the Network node properties.

Additional field

An additional value can be displayed in the Network tree for every node. This value is selected from the same list as for the node name.

If IP addresses are displayed as node names, and a node has the Static IP address property, then the grey lock icon will appear after the IP address; but if IP addresses are displayed in the additional field, and a node has the Static IP address property, then the blue lock icon will appear before the IP address.

Sorting the nodes

The Sorting section allows to select the sorting criteria: nodes can be sorted either by their names or by the additional field values (configured as shown above), with an option to reverse the sorting order.

Number of assets in groups

When Show number of assets in groups is enabled, the number of assets is displayed in parentheses to the right of the group title.
