The Control Center user interface

Once started, Control Center shows the Domain login screen, which requires the competition, in the initial setup, of three fields:

  1. The Domain name

  2. The User name

  3. The user’s Password

If the user had enabled two-factor authentication, before accessing the Domain, he would be asked to enter an additional code. For more information, see Two-Factor Authentication.

If the credentials are accepted, you will be redirected to the main view with the devices’ tree view as shown in the following figure.


With reference to the numbers in the above figure, the different areas and controls have the following meaning:

  1. Tree view of the domain’s components or geographical map view; to make the view simpler to read, it supports an automatic grouping mechanism of homogenous elements. Each folder can contain three different types of elements: Devices, Users/Groups and Firewall policies. When in a given folder, we have elements of at least two different types and each of them is in number greater than one, they will be shown grouped as shown in the following figure. image7

  2. The tree view, indicated as “MANAGE”, is useful when you need to logically manage the domain contents, the users, the groups, the permissions and the firewall rules.

  3. The “ACCOUNT” link allows you to show the domain registration information together with the activation details.

  4. The “OPTIONS” link allows you to manage the domain settings. For more information, see Domain settings.

  5. The commands at the top allow to show the grid view of the devices (Device view and research), the statistics (Audit) and the page for the UBIQUITY Router (UBIQUITY Router) configuration.

  6. In this area, from left to right, you can find the following commands:



    add a device to the domain


    create a folder


    create users and groups


    definition and importing of firewall policies




    delete the selected item


    display the device’s operations audit


    refresh view


    Please note that if the logged user does not have the rights to execute a certain command, the command will appear in grayed out mode.

  7. The right side of the screen is divided into boxes that usually can be expanded or reduced using the button on the left of the name; the contents of each area changes according to the selected element populating with the indicated information.

  8. Search box to execute searches (device view and research) within the tree view.

  9. The shortcut menu that allows you:
    • to get access to the personal page; available only after logging in to the Domain;

    • to get access the Domain (sign in);

    • to disconnect from the Domain (sign out) after logging in to it;

    • to get access to the settings screen (settings);

    • to get access to the user manual (help);

  10. The back command that displays the previously opened page in the order in which the screens are visited.

  11. The two buttons allow you respectively to jump to the Tree view and to the Map view.

The settings page provides several options as shown in the following list:
