Database navigation in admin UI


openBIS version 20.10.5 provides a new database navigation in the admin UI, as shown below.



This allows to navigate the openBIS hierarchy of Spaces, Projects, Experiments/Collections, Objects, Datasets.

The same navigation menu will be used in the ELN UI in an upcoming openBIS version.





It is possible to filter the menu by code or name of the desired entity.




To navigate the menu, the nodes have to be opened individually.

When you select an entry in the node, the corresponding entry page opens. Please note that at this stage, this is only intended as a preview for the navigation menu and the forms show the information  of the entity in json format.

If you open several entry pages and you switch between them, by default the navigation menu will scroll up or down to the corresponding entry in the menu. If you do not want to have this behaviour, you can turn off the scrolling by selecting the button on the top right corner of the menu, as show in the picture below.





Each level of the hierarchy except for Spaces (Projects, Collections, Objects, Datasets) can be sorted separately, using the buttons shown in the pictures below.

By default, the sorting is done by Code in alphabetical order. Other options are: sorting by code in reverse alphabetical order; sorting by ascending date; sorting by descending date.
