The main user interfaces (UI) for Admin Essentials | Profiles are shown below. Please note that available views, features, and interactions in the UI can be limited based on user permissions.
Multiple profiles can exist for an instance of IAP, but only one can be active at a time.
The Details view in a Profile will consists of three tabs: Applications, Adapters, and Configure. Each tab is described below.
When you are viewing an active profile in the Applications tab, the profile is marked by an circled checkmark next to the profile name in the Profiles list on the left. From the Applications tab, a grid displays status information for each application; you also have the ability to stop/start/restart each application, as necessary. This tab updates every 60 seconds when open.

From the Adapters tab, a similar application grid is displayed, along with a status indicator (closed circle) and connection icon (right triangle) to indicate if the adapter is properly connected. This tab also updates every 60 seconds when open.
Figure 2: Adapter Grid
From the Configure tab, users can add/remove adapters and applications from the active profile. Simply select (or deselect) the checkbox that is next to the checklist name. From this view, users can also edit profile properties.

When a profile is selected for editing, the profile properties are displayed as a form.

Click the pencil icon (top-right) to edit the profile. If the profile is not already active, use the toggle switch to set the profile to active. Click the More button (stacked dots next to the pencil icon) to clone a profile, or delete a profile if it is not the active profile.

The main user interface (UI) for Indexing is described below.
Figure 6: Indexing Tab
The indexing grid can be accessed from the active profile only. The grid displays a list of indexes present on the system, and displays whether those indexes are valid or not. In this way, the IAP administrator can quickly see if the necessary indexes are properly installed on the database.
To use the Indexing tab, a user must have access to the
getIndexes method. With this access, the user is able to perform all actions on the page. This includes the ability to direct IAP to create indexes on the database. Care should be observed when assigning this permission to a user or group of users.
The Run Indexing button is available to the user if the index is either missing or misnamed.
- The Total IAP Indexes column shows the number of indexes that IAP can see for that collection.
- The Current IAP Indexes column shows the number of indexes that match what IAP expects to see and are properly indexed.
- The External Indexes column shows the number of custom indexes that were found on the collection. These indexes should be scrutinized to ensure no conflicts with the Itential provided indexes.
⚠ Note: Running indexing may take anywhere from a couple seconds to thirty (30) minutes or more. When the Run Indexing button is pressed, a loader will show until the process is done - with the dialog polling occasionally to determine if the process is complete. If the dialog is closed, polling stops, and if it is reopened again the polling resumes.
