Clicking the webMethods OneData logo located below the Menu toolbar provides details about the application, application server, preferred monitor resolution, code version, current repository ID, and current repository metadata version.
OneData adheres to common user interface and database design practices, for example:
*Fields that cannot be edited, for example, primary keys, are not selectable.
*A tool tip field description displays on a mouse over of the field, if configured in the column definition.
For more information on tool tips, see Implementing webMethods OneData.
*When the column data type is date, use the calendar icon to select a date from the calendar, or enter the date manually.
The menu options available vary according to the user’s security privileges. You can access the records associated with an object using the menu option Manage > Manage Data or View > Browse and selecting the object. Depending on the object definition, the initial data manager screen may display a filter tab for narrowing the record results displayed.
*Edit: Allows users with appropriate security privileges to edit records. The user’s edit privileges are further verified at the object-level. individual record level. Users without privileges to edit records view the Detail screen in read-only mode.
For more information on configuring security, see Administering webMethods OneData.
*Display Values: Displays the records associated with the object, filtering values according to any specified search criteria. From the record results, you can also perform other functions, such as edit, insert, copy, or delete records.
*Audit Comments: A logical column that allows you to enter comments about why data was modified. This field only displays on the Insert, Edit, and Audit Trail screens.
For more information about audit comments, see Administering webMethods OneData.
OneData provides the capability to group fields. The grouping assignment is defined at the column level and is viewable when editing and inserting a single record.
Note: In conceptual objects and recursive structures, the commands that display in the results page may vary.
OneData uses the following navigation and screen conventions:
