3.10.3 Web UI Overview


The main menu at the upper left corner of the Striim web UI allows you to navigate to the UI's various pages. An administrator will see the six choices shown above. Users with limited permissions may see fewer choices.

Your user name appears near the upper right corner. Click it to log out.


At the upper right corner is the alert counter. Click it to see any current alerts sent to you. The alerts above are from the MultiLogApp sample application.

At the bottom of the web UI is the Message Log. Any errors in your applications or dashboards will appear here, along with various "success" messages indicating successful import of applications and so on.

Apps page

All currently created, deployed, and running applications for which you have read permission appear on the Apps page.

You may import or create new apps by clicking Add App. For more information on creating apps, see Fundamentals of TQL programming, Creating apps using templatesCreating or modifying apps using the Flow Designer, and Creating or modifying apps using Source Preview.


When importing a TQL file, the web browser process must have all necessary privileges on the file. For example, in a Linux environment, if the files are owned by root, and you are logged in as another user, you may be able to select the files for import but they will not actually be created.

The status indicator changes to show the application's current state: gray for Created, blue for Deployed, Stopped, or Quiesced, green for Running, red for Crashed, red arrow for Recovering Sources. The status indicator is blank during transitional states. See STATUS in Console commands for more information.

The namespace is displayed at the bottom of each application.

You can use the  menu to deploy, start, monitor, stop, undeploy, or drop an application, export it to a TQL file, move it to a group, or view it in the Flow Designer (see Modifying an application using the Flow Designer). The choices on the menu vary depending on the application's status: for example, Start appears only when the status is running, and Drop appears only when the status is created. Depending on your permissions, some menu choices may not appear.


When using Firefox on Linux, attempting to import a file for which you do not have the required permissions will fail with no error message. Importing the same file with the console will return an error.


If an application has errors, the status indicator will change to a red warning icon. An invalid application cannot be deployed.


If an application crashes due to an error you can fix without undeploying it, such as by restarting an external source that has gone down, you may use the Resume command to continue after resolving the problem.


Optionally, you can personalize your Apps Page by grouping applications. To create a group, select Move to group from the   menu, enter a name for the group, and click Save. Once you have created a group, use the same command to add additional applications. Click the up and down arrows to reorder groups, the pencil to rename or add a description, to collapse a group, > to expand, and to delete a group (the apps will not be deleted).

Dashboards page


All currently loaded dashboards appear on the Dashboards page. Click a dashboard tile to view it. (If the associated application is not running, you will see errors.)

You may import or create new dashboards by clicking Add Dashboard. You can use the  menu to rename, edit, or delete a dashboard (depending on your permissions, some menu choices may not appear). The Export command appears at the top right when you edit the dashboard.

For more information, see Viewing dashboards and Dashboard Guide.

Source Preview page

The Source Preview page allows you to create sources and caches by browsing available data files of certain types. See Creating sources and caches using Source Preview.

Monitor page

See Monitoring using the web UI.

Metadata Manager page

The Metadata Manager lets you browse all existing components you have permission to view. You may filter the list by namespace, application, and type. You may also view the Metadata Manager while in the Flow Designer, which can be useful when you want to copy settings from a component in another application or flow.
