Click an item on the menu to go to the description of the action, or choose from the list below. You can activate the View Menu by pressing Alt + V and you can activate each action by pressing the highlighted character.
Actions which have an associated hot key show this hot key to the right of the action. You can use the hot key to trigger the action without invoking the View menu.
Advanced F7: Toggles the display mode between basic and advanced modes. In basic mode, the Network Identity Manager displays a list of identities and their current status. In the advanced mode, NetIdMgr provides a customizable list of all discovered credentials.
All identities: Toggles the inclusion of all configured identities in the NetIdMgr identity lists. If all identities is unchecked, only the default identity, pinned identities, and identities with credentials are included in the NetIdMgr identity lists.
View columns: Only available in Advanced mode. Invokes a submenu from which you can choose the columns that are displayed in the credentials window. If you change the columns, or their order, a new custom layout will be created for you which you can later use using the Layout submenu later. For more information about managing layouts, see the Layout topic.
By Identity: A predefined layout where the credentials will be grouped by identity and by credentials type, in that order.
By Type: Not implemented in this release. A predefined layout where the credentials are grouped by credentials type
By Location: A predefined layout where the credentials are grouped by the location where they are stored in. For Kerberos 5, the location is the name of the credentials cache in which the tickets are stored, and for AFS, the location is always the cache manager. Individual credential providers choose the interpretation of the location property as the concept of location changes from type to type.
Custom: If you customize any of the above layouts by adding, removing, reordering or changing the sort or outline columns, then NetIDMgr will store your new layout settings under this layout. Invoking this menu item restores your customizations.
Refresh view F5: Refresh the contents of the credentials view. This queries each credential provider for any credentials and redraws the credentials view.
Although most end users will likely find this feature irrelevant, application developers and support staff may occasionally find it to be useful. For example, you may want an immediate status check of available credentials if you have just used command-line kinit or kdestroy and want to check that they have functioned successfully.
