Specifying the tenants for an erasure coding topology

You use the Tenants panel for an erasure coding topology to specify the tenants for the topology. This panel contains two sections:

  • Tenants in This Erasure Coding Topology

    Lists the tenants that are currently included in the erasure coding topology. The tenants are listed in alphanumeric order by name.

  • Tenant Candidates

    Lists the tenants from which you can choose tenants to be added to the erasure coding topology. The tenants are listed in alphanumeric order by name.

    Each listed tenant with a name conflict or link conflict is accompanied by this icon: GUID-BF1F61D2-3959-4DC1-A62B-C5939398AA1D-low.png. The hover text for the icon identifies the issue.

Filtering the tenant lists

By default, each tenant list in the Tenants panel contains all the applicable tenants. You can filter the list in either section to display a subset of the applicable tenants. A filtered list contains only those items with a name that begins with or is the same as a specified text string.

You cannot filter a list while any of the tenants in it are selected.

Filtering

You can filter the tenant list by tenant name or tag. The filtered list includes only those tenants with a name or tag, as applicable, that begins with or is the same as a specified text string.

Procedure

  1. In the field above the Name column, select Name to filter by name or Tag to filter by tag.

  2. In the next field, type the text string you want to use as a filter.

    This string can be up to 64 characters long, can contain any valid UTF-8 characters except commas (,), and is not case sensitive. White space is allowed.
  3. Click the find control (GUID-6E913982-4DF5-4877-8C35-9F689D3C126D-low.png).

Next steps

To redisplay the entire list of tenants after filtering it, click the clear filter control (GUID-2642447B-5A00-4823-9C72-F52C8FB6018E-low.png).
