Various pages in the Horizon Cloud Administration Console provide a filter field to filter the information that is displayed on those pages.

Example of the filter box on the Activity page

When a page has a filter field, as you type characters into the field, the system displays only the subset of the displayed records that contain characters that match that pattern.

Note: The system begins matching the pattern and filtering the records displayed in the page after you have typed three (3) characters into the filter field.

On-Screen Filtering in the Reports Pages

In the tabs of the Administration Console's Reports page, the filtering field works on the number of items that are displayed on the user interface itself and not on the total set of system records for that item. These pages support displaying up to 500 items. Therefore, if the system contains more than 500 records for an item, up to 500 items only are displayed in the user interface page. Using the filter field only filters the 500 displayed records. The filter is not applied to the full set. Here is an example to illustrate:

  • You have 2000 users assigned to a VDI floating desktop assignment.
  • The user names range from vdiuser-1 to vdiuser-2000, such as vdiuser-500, vdiuser-501, vdiuser-502, and so on up to vdiuser-2000.
  • Over the course of a day, all 2000 users log in and use a desktop from that assignment.
  • When you navigate to Monitor > Reports > Desktop Mapping, a displayed message states the report has more than 500 items.
  • When you type vdiuser-54 into the filter to see the records for users vdiuser-54, vdiuser-540, vdiuser-541 up to vdiuser-549, you expect to see 11 rows displayed.

However, instead of displaying the expected 11 rows filtered out of the full 2000 set, the Desktop Mapping page displays only the subset of the originally displayed 500 rows that match the filter pattern. To see the full data set, use the export feature (Export icon that shows up on Reports pages in Horizon Cloud Administration Console).

The following screenshot is an example of the Desktop Mapping page where the system has more than 500 records and the pattern entered in the filter field displays the subset of the displayed records.
