Setting a Default Home Page



We are trying to set the alarms tab as our default home page when we login to the Webgui. We want to display the alarms using the All option (which displays the Errors and Warnings) but when you select Make this my homepage from the Home menu the display switches to just showing the Events that are in an error state and the warnings disappear. The only way to get them back is to click on the Alarms tab again. Am I missing something in the setup or is there another way to configure this.

This is indeed a bug that stems from only the first parameter being stored. We will fix this in an upcoming update.

In the meantime, please copy the URL (including all parameter fields, e.g. https://your_server/alarms.htm?filter_status=5&filter_status=4&filter_status=10&filter_status=13) and enter the same under Setup -> My Account, in the Homepage URL field under the Web Interface section.
