Number of items displayed on the page

A range of currently displayed items and a total number of items are shown above each table in the form of "RANGE / TOTAL". You can also change the maximum number of items displayed on a page by using the dropdown menu.



Filter using search form

You can filter items to display by entering keywords in the search form.
If you enter multiple keywords separated by space, only items matching all the keywords are displayed. (AND search)
When you filter items, matched texts are highlighted in red. Matched texts are highlighted even when they are in the columns which cannot be matched.



Filter using dropdown menu

On the Device > Active Device List page and the Switches > Active OpenFlow Switch List page, you can filter items by the status of Devices or OpenFlow Switches using dropdown menu.



Table 2: Status Dropdown Menu
Option What is displayed
Device > Active Device List
All All the devices in any of the Authorized, Blocked, Link-Down, IP-Filter, Quarantined, Authentication Failed or Detected status.
Authorized Devices matching the security policy for the registered device or the UnAuth Group.
Blocked Devices which were blocked by an instruction of an external system or an operation of an administrator.
Link-Down Devices which are being blocked by AMF Application Proxy's Link-Down action.
IP-Filter Devices which are being blocked by AMF Application Proxy's IP-Filter (Layer 3) action.
Log-Only Devices for which logs were generated without taking any actions.
Quarantined Devices which were moved to quarantine network by an instruction of an external system or an operation of an administrator.
Authentication Failed Devices which failed to authenticate because they were not registered or they didn't match any security policy.
Quarantined | Blocked | IP-Filter | Authentication Failed Devices which are in any of the Quarantined, Blocked, Link-Down, IP-Filter or Authentication Failed status.

Switches > Active OpenFlow Switch List
All All OpenFlow Switches in any of the Negotiating or Ready status
Negotiating Switches that are preparing synchronization with AMF Security where they are initializing OpenFlow functionalities, confirming packet control flow, configuring upstream port name and number. Negotiating also means that an upstream port name and the OpenFlow port numbers are inconsistent.
Ready OpenFlow Switches that have completed the initial settings of the OpenFlow function and are ready for device connection.


Sort

You can sort items by clicking small buttons next to the column headers.



Toggling Order

The sort order is toggled among ascending > descending > default order whenever you click the same button.


Apply Configuration Changes

There is the "Submit" button on each configuration page or dialog. After changing configurations on a page or a dialog, do not forget to click the "Submit" button before moving to another page.
When you click the "Submit" button, the changes you made on the page are immediately applied to the AMF Security's operation.
Note
There are some pages without the "Submit" button because they are read-only and do not have any configuration element to change.
