The Dashboard

The main page of the Micro Focus Connect UI is referred to as the dashboard.

Dashboard tabs

The dashboard consists of four main pages that are accessed via tabs:

Tab Description
Connections Displays a list of your installed connections and a summary of their synchronization attributes (the connection's data source), the direction in which assets are synchronized (the default is bi-directional), the last time a synchronization was run, the last time a synchronization succeeded, and the current status (which can refer to either the synchronization task itself, or to the configuration that defines it).

The Connection Details panel shows detailed information about the currently selected connection, including information about how projects, types, fields, and relationships are mapped between your third-party system and the master data source.

Data Sources Displays a list of currently defined data sources. A Data Source Details panel shows detailed information for the currently selected data source. The information displayed on this panel varies based on the data source. You can also use this page to create and edit data sources. A Data Source provides information about how Micro Focus Connect can communicate with a third-party repository/Tool (For example: JIRA).
User Maps User maps define users that have different user names across multiple datasources. For example, a user may be User1 in one datasource and User 1 in another. User maps allow you to map these two users together so that Micro Focus Connect knows they are the same user.
Authenticators Displays a list of configured Authenticators and available Data Sources. Authenticators are used to enforce which product's users are allowed to log in. A default authenticator is installed with the following credentials: user (Administrator), password (Administrator). Both user and password are case sensitive.
