    Understanding the Usage and Layout of Connectivity Services Director Views and Tasks

    The Connectivity Services Director user interface is based on the network management lifecycle. The interface provides five main working modes that are aligned to the network management lifecycle, and a sixth mode for working with Connectivity Services Director itself. On the View pane, Connectivity Services Director provides you a unified, hierarchical view of your networks in the form of a tree that is expandable and collapsible. You can select the Service View option from the View drop-down list to display the workspaces and settings that you can define for network services and tunnel services.

    The lifecycle mode icons are displayed on the banner to guide you through the different phases of configuration and monitoring that you can perform with Service View. Network services-related pages or GUI pages are used for Layer 2 and Layer 3 service provisioning.

    The Tasks pane is available in every mode and lists tasks specific to that mode. In addition to changing according to the mode selected, tasks listed on the Tasks pane can change as you select Service View on the View pane instead of another view. Clicking a task brings up task-specific content in the main window.

    The System Tasks pane provides tasks for viewing audit logs of Connectivity Services Director user activities, for managing jobs, and for collecting troubleshooting logs.

    See Understanding the Connectivity Services Director User Interface for an illustration of the main components of the Connectivity Services Director GUI.
