Sidebar

AppMon 2018 February feature

The sidebar is the central point for navigating the Client. It allows you to open and create dashboards, access the most important session and server based views as well as to open dashlets. Furthermore, it provides easy access to various settings and actions. The sidebar replaces the formerly used cockpit. The old cockpit, however, is still available as a dashlet.
