Search & Manage

By pressing the Search & Manage button in the left Sidebar Menu, you will enter a section of the app which will allow you to:

  • Search across all agents and devices under your account
  • Select multiple agents or devices to edit and apply common properties and settings
  • Export the settings of a chosen device
  • Import and apply settings to multiple devices
  • Delete selected devices
  • Add/Edit Agents Customer details in order to manage Agents grouped by Customer

Search Devices

This is a very useful view. You can use it to find and manage all devices on all your agents.

With the “Search for devices” textbox, you can filter on the following fields: Name, IP Address, MAC Address, Model, Location, Zone.  

In addition, you can also filter results directly on a column of your interest:

Edit Settings and Properties of multiple agents/devices

After selecting the devices you want, a panel called “Manage Devices” will appear on your right side:

From there, you will be able to assign a common property/setting on all the selected devices:

Export/Import Device Settings and Properties

Another scenario where the Search & Manage view is really useful, is when you have defined a set of custom SNMP sensors or Shared Alerts and you want to apply them to many other similar devices.

To do that you have to search for the device that you want to export your settings from, select it, and click on the “Export Device Settings and Properties” link:

This will save a JSON file on your computer.

Afterwards, search for the devices that you want to import those “properties” to, select them, and click on the “Import Device Settings and Properties button”:

See/Add Shared Alerts

You can now see any shared alerts applied to a device, or add them by clicking the “Add” link:

A side panel will appear on your right side allowing you to manage the alerts on the device:

Additionally, you can search for all the Important Devices within specific Customer Sites that have a specific alert attached or that haven’t been configured with a Shared Alert yet.

See/Add Sensors and/or Drivers
(Pre-configured and Custom SNMP sensors, TCP sensors, Custom Integrations Drivers)

You can search for devices that have sensors configured to analyze them:

or you may add sensors directly by using the “Add” link:

A side panel will appear on your right side allowing you to add sensors to the device:

Devices with additional capabilities (Setup column)

The Setup column indicates whether your individual devices support special configuration (e.g. OS Monitoring, SNMP Management, ONVIF Monitoring or Network Configuration Management). To set-up these configurations the Domotz system requires credentials:

This column enables the user to pro-actively review all the devices which can be unlocked for the additional capabilities, using an easy to use filter.

Additionally, by clicking the capability highlighted (for example “Configuration Management) you will be able to enable the feature directly on the device:

Search Agents (Sites)

Additionally, the “Sites” section within the Search & Manage view, is very useful to have a wide view on all your agents along with you Customer’s information:

This view enables you to:

– see a quick report on the status of your agents with the following information:

  • Total Number of Sites Monitored
  • Number of Offline Sites
  • Number of Sites With Important Offline Devices
  • Sites with Security Issues

And you will also be able to filter for sites that have issues:

– see the total number of Online Devices for each site, together with the number of Offline Important devices (out of the total number of Important devices). Additionally, you can sort the list of sites that are experiencing the majority of Important Devices offline:

– see the number of possible Security Vulnerabilities discovered on each site:

– inspect each site’s network for its network scenario (it will show VLANs attached, Routed Networks, and/or External Hosts, etc.):
