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 displays 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.

For details, see Create a Connection.

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).

For details, see Create a Data Source.

User Maps

User maps define users that have different user names across multiple Data Sources. For example, a user may be User1 in one Data Source 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.

For details, see Add Relationships to Types.

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.
Users

Use this tab to manage how users log in to Micro Focus Connect.

For details see Manage Users.
