Components Console

The Components Console allows you to browse through all components defined for your instance and view key information for each component.

It can be accessed from Tools -> General -> Components. Because there is no tree structure for components, only list view is available.

NOTE

The Components Console shows all components in the system. The Component Browser shows components that are available to authors and hides any component groups that begin with a period ( .).

Search

With the Content Only icon (top left) you can open the Search panel to search and/or filter the components:

    CAUTION

    Due to the nature of the information being collected for this view, it can take a while to be collated/displayed.
