After spending too much time trying to find out why the NPM Node details page was taking so much time to load, it was decided that, following SW TAC proposal, to create new views with tabs by enabling the Left TAB Navigation fonction in the new view.

The Node detail page for the device assigned to this new view  ow load much faster then the other ones using the default Node Details view.

I am now facing multiple requests from our users to modify the some other views using this new template.  it is fairly easy when all I have to do it copy my template assign it a new name and simply remove unnecessary tabs but becomes a pain when the actual views have UNDP Gauge or graphs that I need to apply to my new views and customize one by one.

Does anybody know a way to copy tabs from one view to another or a way to obtain a list the view dewfinition ?

All i was able to do is get the List of the View Group names and view Title from the View Table in the database but i cannot find the definition of each columns in my views.

Am I the only one struggling with too many views.

Would it be a good thing to have the possibility to copy tabs from another view in the current one?

Any help you guys can provide will be more then welcome..

(2) Create a copy of the tab that you want to copy to a different view

(3) Go to the Views table in the Orion Database and identify / note down the following:

       - ViewGroupName of the Original view where the tab will be copied from

       - ViewGroup of the Original view where the tab will be copied from

       - ViewGroupPosition of the original tab that you will copy over to your view

       - ViewIcon filename of the original tab that you will copy over to your view

(4) Click Enable Table Editing

(5) Locate the copy / replica of the original tab in the Views table and go to its ViewGroupName field. Double-

click the field and type in the ViewGroupName you noted down from step # 3.

(6) Locate the copy / replica of the original tab in the Views table and go to its ViewGroup field. Double-click the field and type in the ViewGroup you noted down from step # 3

(7) Locate the copy / replica of the original tab in the Views table and go to its ViewGroupPosition field. Double-click the field and type in the ViewGroupPosition you noted down from step # 3

Looks good, just to confirm.  Step (7)  and (5) are the same.  Should it be to change the ViewGroup position ?

Also where could I find the definitin of each view ID, i am unable to find a table with this information.

Thanks for the input.

This is a work around  I can work with.

Maybe we can request that to be added to a future release.

updated. sorry

You can cross reference the view by using the ViewTitle and ViewKey columns of the specified ViewID
