Parameters for map viewlets describes the parameters which enable you to specify an element as the focus of a map viewlet and to determine what type of map is displayed. The map type must be relevant to the specified element.


When launching a map viewlet, you must specify the class of the element and instance name of the element for the map, otherwise the map will be empty. (The map viewlet does not include the topology browser so you cannot select an instance.) However, when the map is used in conjunction with other viewlets, such as the Notification Log viewlet, you can context share to display elements in the map. When you specify the instance in the URL without a map type, the console chooses a default map type for that instance.

Table 1. Parameters for map viewlets




Name of the ICIM class of which the element is an instance.


Display name of the elements.


Type of map that is displayed. Can include:

  • Physical for Physical Connectivity

  • IP for IP Connectivity

  • VLAN for VLAN Connectivity

  • Membership for Membership

  • Business for Business Services Maps

  • Application for Applications Maps

When true, prevents console operations such as Show Map from displaying in the Map viewlet. Instead, actions such as Show Map display in a new Map viewlet.


Optional parameter that specifies how many hops the map should display. If a value is not specified, one hop is displayed. (Part of Launching in Context.)


Value is boolean. When true, this optional parameter forces the Map to fit inside the window no matter how large the map.

Value is boolean. When true, this optional parameter allows all business topology to be seen in the map and not just the topology that has a direct path to the central map node.


You can also use the com.smarts.launch.class and com.smarts.launch.instance parameters for Notification Properties and Containment viewlets.
