Tools Menu

The Tools menu that appears on every page in the Browse tab in the HQ user interface contains commands you can perform on the currently selected resource type. The commands available vary depending on whether the current resource is a platform, a server, a service, and so on. Most of the commands on the Tools menu relate to managing resource inventory: creating, configuring, and deleting resource; for platforms you can enable and disable alert definitions; for compatible groups, you can schedule downtime - a period during which alerts on resources on the platform of the servers and services that run in it will not fire.

The commands that appear in the Tools menu vary depending on whether you are viewing a particular platform, server, service, group, application, or a list of resources on the Resources > Browse page.
