This topic describes how to view the status of actions for the Delphix Engine.

To view the status of actions that are currently running on the Delphix Engine, open the Action sidebar. To view details of currently-running and completed jobs, open the Dashboard.

Action Sidebar Procedure

  1. Login to the Delphix Admin or ServerSetup application. 
    Depending on the width of the window, the Action sidebar may be automatically displayed on the right of the screen.
  2. To see the Action sidebar, click Action on the top navigation bar.

Description

The Action sidebar consists of two sections. The top section lists actions that are currently running on the Delphix Engine. The bottom section, labeled Recently completed, contains actions which have recently completed.

Each action is initially collapsed and only presents the title of the action. Click an action to expand it and see more details such as progress, elapsed time, and a description of the operation in progress.

The following is an example of the Action sidebar when a Link action is running.

If you are a Delphix Admin or a System Admin, you will be able to see all actions of your respective application. If you are not an admin user, you will only see actions you have permissions to see.

Sub-action

Each action may contain one or several sub-actions which represent the execution of a subset of the action itself. Click an action to see its sub-actions and their respective details. Note that the list of sub-actions is created dynamically during the execution of the action.

The following is an example of an Environment Refresh action and its sub-actions.

Errors

When an error condition occurs during the execution of an action, the background color of the action's box becomes red, and the action remains in the top section until you dismiss it. 
  1.  Click the action title to expand it.
    The action will expand to display a description of the error, suggestions to resolve it, and sometimes the raw output of command execution.

To dismiss the action:

  1. Click the X next to the action displaying an error.

The following is an example of an action failure displayed in the Action sidebar.
