Counters User Interface¶
To see the Counters menu entry on P6 Portal, the
counters=view permission is required.
If you have the
counters=* permission, you can have access to all the functions mentioned below.
View the counters¶
To list and display the counters, the
counters=read permission is required.
If your permission has values like this:
counters=read('Counter 1', 'Counter 2'), you will only see the listed counters, i.e. Counter 1 and Counter 2.
You can view a counter by clicking on the magnifier icon.
Edit a counter¶
To create, update, rename, duplicate, delete, export or import a counter, the
counters=edit permission is required.
Double-click on the counter associated line to access the edit form. You can update the counter’s name, description, target, type and query.
The counter’s name and the English description are mandatory and cannot be empty.
The query is the XPath (XML Path Language) expression which will be run when the counter is synchronized. This field is mandatory and cannot be empty.
Synchronize a counter¶
counters=edit permission, you can also synchronize (re-calculate or refresh) counters.
There are various ways to synchronize counters from the UI: either clicking the icon displayed in the ‘Synchronize’ column, or from the ‘View’ tab or from the ‘Edit’ form.
