Ensure domain separation on a gauge

To ensure domain separation on a gauge when the MSP Extensions plugin is not installed, a domain field must be added to the table for gauges and gauge counts. This domain field must then be set as a reference field.

About this task

By default, the Domain Support plugin separates data on certain tables by domain. It does not separate gauges by domain unless the MSP Extensions plugin is installed. The gauge displays data only from the user's domain, but the user is able to see the entire gauge.

Follow these steps to ensure domain separation on gauges if the MSP Extensions plugin is not installed.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System UI > Gauges and select a gauge to separate by domain.
  2. Configure the form layout and add a new field named sys_domain.
  3. Configure the dictionary on the sys_domain field and fill in the Reference field with the domain for this gauge. If left blank, the gauge is global
  4. Select a gauge count record under the gauge related lists.
  5. Repeat steps 2 and 3.
    Domain fields appear on gauges and gauge counts, and the field references a table. After a domain field exists on a form, all records within the table will have the domain field enabled. By default, these records are global.
