Create nested maps

Nested maps allow you to navigate through a map to see multiple levels of detail.

For example, a map of the United States can include an icon for a child map of Oklahoma. You can then click the Oklahoma object to open the child map.

The map of Oklahoma can become a parent map to a network diagram.

Each child map can include a view of the objects, either devices or other maps, deployed on it.

Click any nested object to view the next level of map detail, until you reach the final network device and see all available network information.

The total number of objects on a map, including objects on child maps, affects how fast the map loads in the Orion Web Console. If your maps load slowly, decrease the number of map objects.

  1. Create all maps to be nested in the Network Atlas.
  2. Open the parent map, and drag a map from the Maps group onto the parent map.
  3. Position the new map object on the parent map, and save the map.
  4. If you want the status of a child map to also indicate the status of its child objects, complete the following steps:
    1. Right-click the child map icon on the map, and select Properties.
    2. Select Include Child Status on the Status properties page, and click OK.

      The object status icon now includes the secondary status indicator.
