Features

The Web Client provides thousands of functions, which are documented on many pages. The Web Client user interface offers the following data items:

  • General Information
  • Sidebar Menu Items with links to available features.
    • Page and modals with the selected feature

On the Web Client's left side, the console panels have tiles with child tiles representing different types of artifacts/entities that you can view and manage.

When you select a tile in the console, the details pane on the right side of the Web Client displays information about the items.

The Nodinite Web Client has Role-based security, and the available features look different for different Users, depending on their Role-membership.

  • Hidden - This option gives you a full-screen experience working with the Web Client.
  • Small - This option gives you a small sized sidebar menu.
  • Large - This option keeps the sidebar menu large as long as you do not enter mobile mode (small screen).
  • Auto (default) - This option automatically changes the size of the sidebar menu according to the screen size.
