Use the Navigation portlet to set the starting element for other portlets on a page. The Navigation portlet displays an element hierarchy with icons show the element’s current condition. For more information on element status, see Monitoring Elements and Element State in the Operations Center User Guide.
The elements displayed depend on the user’s permissions in Operations Center. Click the + and – icons to expand and collapse the element hierarchy displayed on the Navigation portlet.
By default, the element selected on the Navigation portlet is the element shown in all portlets on the page (where applicable). This is similar to the Configuring the Starter Portlet. The default starting element is the user’s home element.
If both a Navigation portlet and a Starter portlet exist on the same page, either portlet can be used to drive other portlets on the page. However, after a portlet is set up to be driven by the Navigation portlet, it is no longer driven by the Starter portlet (and vice versa), unless set up on the Starter portlet, too.
