Two different probe configuration tools are available in Admin Console: probe configuration GUIs and Raw Configure. Many probes, but not all, have a probe configuration GUI. All probe configurations can be modified using Raw Configure. 
Each probe configuration GUI is designed to handle the specific workflows of the probe it was built for. Probes with more involved configurations typically provide a probe configuration GUI. Raw Configure is a generalized configuration file editor that does not provide any custom workflows. Raw Configure is typically used to make simple configuration edits, such as adjusting the log level of a probe.
Probe configuration GUIs often provide functionality that Raw Configure does not. For example, password encryption is handled for you if you modify the webgtw probe in its configuration GUI. If you add a password to the webgtw probe in Raw Configure, you have to encrypt the password yourself, and then enter the encrypted password. In addition, probe configuration GUIs often validate the entries you make, whereas Raw Configure does not.
For the specific configuration procedures for individual probes, see the Probes Documentation.

Open a Probe Configuration GUI or Raw Configure
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Log in to Admin Console.
  2. Select the hub, and select the robot where the target probe is deployed.
  3. Select the 
    Probes
     tab.
  4. Select the inline menu button (Inline Menu Button Icon) next to the probe > 
    Configure 
    or
     Raw Configure
    .
    If you selected 
    Configure
    , the configuration GUI for the probe opens in a new tab. If you selected 
    Raw Configure
    , the Raw Configure utility for the probe opens in Admin Console.
    You can search the configuration file for a probe using the search icon (Search Icon) in the Raw Configure utility.
About the Probe Configuration GUI
The probe configuration GUI contains a left and right navigation pane. The right navigation pane usually contains configuration information based on your selection in the left navigation pane. For more information about specific elements and configuration options for individual probes, see the Probe Documentation.
The left navigation pane contains a hierarchical representation of the monitoring targets and any configurable elements associated with the probe. The left navigation pane also contains a filter to help locate items within the probe hierarchy. This filter is especially useful if you must manage multiple probe configuration elements.
Make note of the following information when using the filter:
  • The names of items that match your filter criteria appear as highlighted bold text.
  • Collapsed items that contain child items that match your filter criteria appear as bold text.
  • Items that do not match your filter criteria appear as gray text.
  • Collapsed items that contain unloaded child items contain a white plus icon.
     The filter only locates items loaded in the current view. It might be necessary to expand a collapsed item to load any child items.
Use Raw Configure to Edit a Probe Configuration
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Log in to Admin Console.

  3. Select the 
    Probes
     tab.
  4. Select the inline menu button (Inline Menu Button Icon) next to the probe >
     Raw Configure
    .
  5. Use the following options as needed:
    • To add a section, select the
