Admin Portal workspace

The Admin Portal provides the following types of workspaces:

  • Dashboard: the first page open each time you log into the Admin Portal gives you an at-a-glance view of the all managed devices.
  • Action menus: includes all the top-level menus that help you manage devices.

Do not create bookmarks for Admin Portal pages. Session IDs are included in the bookmark and may cause connection problems. If you would like to create a bookmark for the Admin Portal, create one manually for the following URL: https://<fully_qualified_hostname>/mifs.
