Bring back Search by Customer and Site

Until N-central 12sp1, we could search by the "Customer" and "Site" columns. Bug "fix" NCCF-7996 (I'm told by support this was done on purpose) broke this and we can no longer search by those fields. It was much, much faster to filter down to all devices from a single Customer or Site by search instead of drilling into Customers and Sites. We even named all our Customers with this in mind. EG: "aatc - 437 - An Awesome ...more »

Ability to search for ALL patches within Patch Approvals

Currently many servers indicate their are updates missing with no approval. However when i go into Patch Approvals, both by Device or By Patch, it seems to indicate all available and needed updates have been either approved or declined. When i check Patch Status V2 on the server it shows me the KB it's missing; however when i go into Patch Approvals by Device or by Patch, i cannot locate the KB. I was advised by SolarWinds ...more »

Filter Network Devices by comma delimited list of device names

Sometimes we have a list of machine names already, and don't want to build a filter around it. It would be really useful for the freetext device search field to accept a comma-delimited list of machine names.


use cases

- queue up remote sessions for a support case

- overview of monitoring status for disparate group of machines

Search by Asset Information in "All Devices"

Currently there is no way to search for information like Serial Number or Asset Tag in the "All Devices" screen. Currently the only way to perform this kind of search is to start creating a filter and sort by "Hardware > System Serial Number > Contains". This is obviously not ideal and for the few techs that need to search by serial number it can be confusing after not doing it for so long. Would it be feasible to add ...more »

Search items in menu bar

The left hand menu bar has many different items, options, dashboards, etc. It would be nice to have a search bar at the top of it all which would show you different menu items as you start typing it. For instance, if you started typing the word "patch" it would bring up Patch Management without you having to go through and find the option manually. WHM from cPanel does this very well.

Scheduled Tasks - Filter on Columns, Search on Contents

This one has been an obvious problem for years, but I'll resubmit ot in the new system anyway. N-Central simply can't scale up with large amounts of schedueld tasks running in one job. This is because the outputs aren't in any ideal sorted order (and can't be changed), you can't filter on the columns to reduce the amount of tasks, or search against the task output content to find the task outputs you are looking for. ...more »

Clear company search field when clicking into the field

When I log into N-Central, I enter at the SO level with our company name in the orange box at the upper left of the screen. I frequently search for a specific company by clicking in that box, and typing the company name that I would like to enter, rather than scrolling through the entire list of companies. Currently, I have to triple-click in the field to select all text in the box (the SO name, or currently selected ...more »
