What are Summary Definitions and Tailored Summaries?

You use Summary Definitions to define the criteria and content of a Tailored Summary. A Tailored Summary is the live display associated with a Summary Definition, and applies to the online system only.

Summary Definitions and Tailored Summaries provide an easy way to view and modify large quantities of similar data in a tabular format in Metasys UI. These features also help to monitor and troubleshoot the system. You configure Summary Definitions in SMP or SCT.

Who can use the Tailored Summary Viewer?

You can use the Tailored Summary Viewer if you meet the following requirements:
  • User View has one or more folders that have a Summary Definition in them.
  • Summary Definition is created and all attributes are configured. Optionally, the key data items are configured.
  • Permission to view Summary Definition objects

How do I access the Tailored Summary Viewer?

  1. In the navigation panel on the left of your Metasys UI dashboard, click Views.
  2. Select the required User View from the list.
  3. Click on the required folder in the User View tree. The Summary View widget opens.
