Clicking on the [Web Map] or [App] icon of the container will bring up a panel with details/settings for that container, as shown below.

From left to right at the top are four icons with the following functions:

Will generate a chart of monitored points

Will open the web map viewer (on Web Map containers only, this icon is not available on App containers)

Will refresh the container *

Will delete the container

* Refreshing the container: There will be times when layers are added or deleted from an existing web map which has been monitored for some time.   In this case, refresh the container rather than deleting it and recreating it.  This will preserve all the existing data for the web map if history has been enabled.  


Drop down box to set which tab the container will reside on.


List of any exclusions that have been created on the 'Settings - Exclusions' panel.  Note that global exclusions are shown for informational purposes only, and can't be turned off here, since they affect all containers and must be managed in the 'Settings - Exclusions' panel.


Alerting when monitoring points are down can be turned on or off at the system, container or monitoring point level.  If Alerting is turned on or off at the container level the alerting on all the points within the container are turned either on or off.

Slow Alert

Alerting when monitoring points are slow can be turned on or off at the container or monitoring point level.  Slow alerts cannot be turned on unless alters for being down are on.


Who should receive the alerts is established at the container level by selecting the contacts who should be altered.  If no contacts appear under "Contact Info", it is because none have been created (see 'Settings - Alerts' to do this). 

Note that the email server must also be properly configured for alerts to be sent (refer to 'Settings - Alerts' for this).

Click [Save Changes] when you are satisfied with the settings.
