Configurable work areas for your datasets, files, and calculation results

Structure your data work areas for your team to allow your users to find their datasets and files easily by navigating just the work areas allocated for their group. No more guessing where users should place data and the backups. You can create a hierarchy of folders and subfolders to logically structure the data areas to better match the work flow.

Easily share your data within your team

Datasets, input and output files, queries and reports, as well as dataset backup archives are easily shared by all members of the user group via commonwork areas shown in the application dashboard.

Protect access to selected work areas

Control access to work areas using custom roles and permissions. This helps achieve segregation of duties and a security level required for compliance by auditors.

Log messages and notes documenting all AXIS work

Messages generated by the system as a result of user actions performed in the work areas are captured and presented for your review in the logs. You can create and post notes to document your work in each folder. The dashboard offers you a filtered view for the notes and log messages with various details about various events in the system.

Integration with Microsoft Office tools

Automatically open any file stored in your work area folders in associated applications such as Microsoft Excel or Access right from the AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard.

Control over other users access to data stored in your work area

Customize permissions to allow only the actions that are required for the desired work flow to be performed by members of different user groups on datasets and files in your work areas and backup archives.

Control over user roles with fine-grained permission sets for various actions throughout the system

The variety of actions EnterpriseLink users are allowed to perform are defined by the role (or multiple roles) assigned to theiruser group. A role is a set of permissions that defines what users can or cannot do in the system.

Vendor defined and customized user roles

AXIS EnterpriseLink comes with only one pre-defined role for initial administration. You can create new custom roles to reflect segregation of duties required for your environment. These custom roles can be assigned to the user groups to provide them with corresponding access level to the tools and work areas.

User group access to work area supervision

User group management area helps implement the desired work flow by allowing you to grant access to required work areas.

User group role management

User groups can be assigned one or multiple custom roles. Resulting set of permissions will determine what actions members of the group are allowed to perform.

Configure and control access to system tools and resources

Assign GridLink farm queues, map paths to persistent backup storage and control access to other system tools and resources from one central place.

Centralized repository for AXIS dataset and EnterpriseLink Job revisions

Check your datasets and Jobs in to the EnterpriseLink version control repository and maintain the revision history for each dataset and Job. Check the datasets out for editing or get a copy of any version of the dataset down to your work area folder for testing or production runs. Check your Job out to proceed with the script development or get a copy of any version of the Job for a test run.

History view and versions comparator

Review the history of "check-ins" for a dataset and/or Job under version control and compare any two selected versions to see what changes were made between them. Powerful dataset comparator tool performs quick and accurate dataset comparisons and provides you with a clear interface for easy analysis of differences found between all types of dataset objects. You can also compare Jobs to see the changes in the script and property values, and Global Parameters associated per Job.

Report on changes

Version Control database stores dates and times when datasets and/or jobs were added or their versions were checked in, along with the name of the user and notepads for each version. The ability to track and report on changes helps comply with auditors' requirements.

Control access to projects

Assign which user group is allowed to check out and check in datasets and Jobs or get their selected version copies from specific version control projects.

Integration with multiple AXIS GridLink farms

Through its administrative dashboard AXIS EnterpriseLink allows an authorised user to easily perform a setup required for integration with multiple GridLink farms.

Submit jobs to a GridLink queue or run locally

AXIS EnterpriseLink controls user group access to AXIS GridLink farms. Once a user group is granted a right to use the GridLink queue(s), users can choose to submit their batch to the GridLink farm queue or run it on one of the EnterpriseLink servers.

Monitor jobs right from EnterpriseLink dashboard

Monitor active jobs running on EnterpriseLink servers or in any of your GridLink job queues right from the dashboard and viewthe completed jobs list and their batch logs.

Scripted jobs to perform sequences of calculations or processes

AXIS users have already benefited from the ability to write their own AXIS Script (similar to Visual Basic for Applications - VBA) in a System Formula. EnterpriseLink provides a central place to create and execute scripts right from the user dashboard. These jobs are especially suited for production processes but can also be written by the user to perform various service tasks such as backing up datasets or converting datasets to newer versions of AXIS.

Predefined job parameters for automated runs without manual intervention

Assign AXIS version, work area/folder to run a job. Control which user can edit the job script or its parameters. This provides the ability to run jobs without having to open datasets or job scripts, as well to perform fully automated runs viathe built-in job scheduler.

Sample Jobs Library
