Edit Ribbon

The Edit tab contains a number of options and functions that can be used in multiple areas of the console.

Eidt Ribbon


Cut, copy and paste nodes, actions and conditions from one area of a configuration to another. This includes nodes in the navigation pane and actions and conditions in the work area. Items can also be copied between layers.

Items can only be pasted to areas which are compatible. For example, Process triggers can only accept nodes which contain a process name condition and user conditions such as, User Name is Equal to, cannot be pasted into the Computer Startup trigger. When such conflicts arise, you are notified which items cannot be included in the paste and why.

Copy Paste Conflicts


Functions to update the configuration:

  • Delete nodes, actions and conditions
  • Disable nodes, actions and conditions
  • Find and replace nodes, actions, and conditions
  • Find actions and then view or edit them.


Move nodes, actions and conditions within a configuration. The position of an item in a configuration not only determines the order of events but can also change the behavior.

For example, the positioning of a condition within the Policy Configuration navigation tree determines how it is applied. Conditions at the same level within in the tree are evaluated simultaneously. A condition which is a child of another condition, will only evaluate once the parent condition has been successfully executed.

Options Ribbon

Display options for the Environment Manager Console:

Show AND and OR labels

Show Item Background colors

Items within the console have different colors depending on their type. For example, conditions are green and reusable conditions are light orange.
