General UI Functions
Navigating Tree Views
Many of the QXO administrative screens display items in a tree view. Navigate the tree by clicking nodes to expand or collapse them. Icons indicate if a node is expandable, fully expanded, or cannot be expanded. Navigation Tree illustrates a navigation tree.

Navigation Tree
Entering Data in HTML Forms
The data entry forms as illustrated in HTML Data Entry Form show field names and values. Access the fields by clicking or by tabbing through the fields. Fields displaying a red asterisk (*) are required.

HTML Data Entry Form
Filtering Names
On many QXO administrative screens, you can enter a name to filter the items displayed for update or viewing. Name Filter Field illustrates the Name filter field for business objects. The rules for entering values in other Name fields are the same as for this one.

Name Filter Field
Enter a value in the Name field to determine what displays in the left pane for selecting items to view or update.
Enter a specific search value to find an exact match. For example, enter Carrier to update the carrier record.
Enter a search value followed by the wild card (*) to find all items with names that start with that value. For example, enter sales* to see business objects with names that start with sales.
Leave blank to display all items.
Using Table Filters
On QXO screens where you review data, such as the logs and viewers, you can filter data by one or more sets of criteria. To add or modify filter criteria, click Filter. A screen like the one in Figure 1.7 displays.

Filtering
Use the Add button to add a row for specifying an additional filter. Use the Delete button to remove a filter line. Click Run to apply the filter to the displayed information. Click Reset to close the filter view.
Choose an attribute from the drop-down list. The attributes match the columns of data being displayed. For example, to filter by message text, choose text as the attribute for the filter.
You can use the following operators with filters:
 
Operator
Description
Text Operators
begins
The system returns records with values that start with the value you specify.
>
The system returns records with values that start with a value greater than the one you specify.
matches
The system returns records with values that exactly match the value you specify.
Numeric Operators
>=
The system returns records with values that start with the value you specify or any value higher than it.
<
The system returns records with values that start with the a value less than the one you specify.
=
The system returns records with values that exactly match the value you specify.
<>
The system returns records with values that do not exactly match the value you specify.
<=
The system returns records with values that start with the value you specify or any value lower than it.
Use the Condition setting when you have more than one filter criterion to indicate whether you want values that meet all conditions to be returned (AND condition) or values that meet any one of the conditions (OR condition).
Using Lookups
In many QXO screens, you can associate one type of record with another. For example, you can associate source applications with event services. To make this kind of association, you choose values from a lookup that displays all available records in one list and the records currently associated in another.
These lookups all operate in the same fashion. The screen shown in Figure 1.8 illustrates the lookup for source applications.

Register Source Applications for a Session Profile
Use the Add and Remove buttons to move selected objects from one list to the other. Click OK when you are satisfied with your changes; click Cancel to discard changes without saving them.
In some lookups, you can filter the values that display in the available records list. For example, when you register business objects, additional fields display that let you filter the list, as shown in Figure 1.9.

Register Business Objects for a Message Publisher
Enter a source application value in the App Type field. Then specify a filter value in the Business Object Filter field—or leave the field blank to display all. Click the arrow to display matching business objects in the Available Business Object list. Then use the Add and Remove buttons to move values from one list to the other as needed.
QXO Console
QXO displays as a multi-function console that includes graphing capabilities and lets you view, monitor, and configure QXO components through a set of tabs. QXO Administrative Console illustrates the initial view displaying the Dashboard tab.

QXO Administrative Console
The various tabs provide quick access to the following functions:
Dashboard
Display the current status and statistics about QXO processes and drill down to more detailed views.
Business Objects
Create or modify business objects in a tree view and display data related to each node in the object.
Profiles
Create or modify business object profiles in a tree view and review and modify the fields associated with each node.
Viewers
View messages generated by QXO at various points in the transformation process.
Logs
View logs related to events, messages, and QDocs.
Configuration
Create and update profiles for components of QXO, including source applications, event services, message publisher services, message sender services, delivery schedules, archive settings, and subscribers.
