Update the Provider Administrator portal dashboard

BriteCore users or client users with the role of Administrator logged in to BriteCore’s Provider Administrator portal are presented with a dashboard with three possible sections: BriteCore Status, BriteCore Notifications and Welcome to BriteCore. 

BriteCore Status

This section displays important system notifications. A notification requiring attention will be red (critical) or orange (warning) with directions or important information. Once a notification requiring attention expires, the BriteCore Status area will return to green (all clear). This area is managed by the BriteCore support team; it’s available only to users with the role of Administrator and appears only when an alert is sent.

Notifications are set in the notifications table and have a message, priority level, start time and expiration time.

Create a status alert

BriteCore staff can either amend and run the below script on a client site or use the Create Notification tool in Rundeck:

bin/create_notification.py –message “Another message” –level “critical” –start “2016-09-22 10:00” –expires “2016-09-23 18:00”

BriteCore notifications

This section is used to update clients of recent releases. This area is managed by the BriteCore documentation team; it is available only to users with the role of Administrator.

Notifications are set in the notifications table and have a message, priority level, start time and expiration time.

Create a notification

BriteCore staff can either run the below script on a client site or use the Create Notification tool in Rundeck.

Script 1 – default message

This script creates the default message “A new feature has been released. Please see our releases page for more information.” that links to the Releases page of the BriteCore support site.

Script

bin/create_notification.py –message “” –level “info” –start “2017-02-20 00:00” –expires “2017-02-23 18:00”

Rundeck
  • Complete the fields on Rundeck using the following info:
    • Message: blank
    • Level: info
    • Start: roughly the current time (using military time)
    • End: 2-3 days from the start, allowing enough time for users to receive the notification
    • Nodes: Uncheck the Change the Target Nodes (0) checkbox or select nodes

Script 2 – custom message

This scripts allows for a custom message using the –message argument:

bin/create_notification.py –message “custom message” –level “info” –start “2017-02-20 00:00” –expires “2017-02-20 00:00”

The –level argument of the script determines to which section the message is added: the BriteCore Status or BriteCore Notifications section.

Welcome to BriteCore

This section is customizable and is used to convey important information to your users who have access to the Administrative Portal.
