The Graphs Browser is for those who do not want to search, but rather want to browse and drill-down into each device and group. At each step, appropriate data is shown in summary form. Customers who log in as end-users are presented with this interface, as it’s more easily understood and there is no need to know what you’re searching.


There is a video for you to watch.

How to browse graphs in Iris


Click on Graphs on the navigation bar at the top of the screen.

Select Graphs Browser from the drop-down.

 Click on the View that you would like to see from the tree on the left of the screen.



In this example, CORE was selected as a view. The tree structure is displayed under CORE.

You are able to view all the devices, mnemonics and elements that have been added to this view. You are also able to view all the graphs related to each device or mnemonic. These are displayed on the right of your screen.


Graphs will be displayed for each device that you click on.



A summary of the device that you have selected will always be displayed first. In the summary, you will be able to see the view name, code and type. You will also see a list of items that have been linked to that device.


View Status

The status will either be red or green. If it is a green status, then there are no down events. If it is red, then there are some down events. In this example, the view status of Core is red: there are some down events.



Here you will be able to determine the health of the elements that can be found within this view.


Top Alarms

This would be a list of the most critical alarms for this device.



We have created some ways that you can quickly search for a specific graph.


You can search by typing the view or device name in the search field.


You can filter the view by clicking on the view filter icon. This allows you to filter elements in the following ways:

· Hide untagged elements

· Show archived elements

· Hide empty elements

If you would like to expand or collapse the entire tree, you can click on the system icon. This could take a long time depending on the data in the panel.

You are able to rapidly edit a view, create a child view or add a device. Just right-click on the desired location in the tree, and an action box will pop up allowing these actions. Clicking on the items will bring up the relevant Modal.

2 - The green tick or red cross will show if you are able to drop the object in this location or not
