Advanced Search & Reporting

You can search for any object on your Metasys site, bulk command and bulk modify points, schedule reports, and create base reports.

System Activity

You can view and manage all audits and alarms that are forwarded from an engine to a Metasys server directly in Metasys UI with System Activity. The feature helps you understand changes that have occurred in the Metasys system over a period of time.

Feature Management
You can access the following features in Feature Management:
  • Graphics Manager: Administrators can manage, create, and edit graphics. You can also import and export Metasys UI graphics and Custom Symbols.
  • Remote Notifications: You can configure the routing and filtering of event and audit messages directly in the Metasys UI for each ADS/ADX, NAE85/LCS85 or engine, without installing software on client machines.
  • Trend Study Manager: Authorized users can manage, create, and edit trend studies.
  • Dashboards Manager: Administrators can manage and create custom dashboards.
  • Fault Manager: Administrators can view, enable, and disable all fault rules in the Fault Manager. Administrators can also modify global attributes and download an archive of global attributes, exceptions, and activity logs, and they can import an archive to restore data from a previous archive. You require the Metasys Fault Detection license to access the Fault Manager.
Note: The items listed here are not visible to Non-Administrator users, with the exception of Remote Notifications and Trend Study Manager.
Network Security You can access the following features in Network Security :
  • Cyber Health Dashboard: Administrators get a centralized view of potential security-related issues or system issues which are detectable by an ADS/ADX, but which may not surface as part of general system alarms.
  • Device Pairing: Administrators can pair devices with the Site Director.
  • BACnet/SC Management: Administrators can manage BACnet/SC certificates and settings with this feature.
Administrative Tasks You can access the following features in Administrative Tasks:
  • Site Settings: Administrators can enable the Alarm Monitor feature and the Usage Analytics service at site level. Administrators can also choose to force users to add annotations.
  • User Management: Administrators can create and manage users and roles in the Metasys UI.
  • Space Authorization: Administrators can define user authorization for spaces.

  • About: Lists the Metasys UI software version and the Metasys OAS, NAE85/LCS85, ADS/ADX, or ADS-Lite software version. As an Administrator, you also see available software updates. The About screen also shows the licensing status of your features.
  • Terms and Conditions: Opens the Terms and Conditions.
User You can see the user name of the user who is logged in here. Only the first three characters of the user name appear. The remaining characters are hidden to ensure that unauthorized users cannot gain access to the user name used to log into the system.
