License Status Indicator
The License Status indicator displays UNLICENSED if a piece of software on the Metasys® site is unlicensed. The
unlicensed piece of software may be the Ready Access Portal itself or an Application and Data Server/Extended
Application and Data Server (ADS/ADX) on the site. When the Ready Access Portal and all components of the
Metasys site are licensed, the unlicensed message disappears.
Dashboard Button
Dashboard button (house): Opens the Dashboard or home view.
Function Buttons
Function buttons allow you to access the function modes in which you can perform tasks. Your access privileges
determine which buttons you see and, thus, which function modes you can access. The function button for the active
function mode is highlighted in color.
Note: The function buttons do not appear for Tenant users.
Tip: If you place your cursor over a function button, the name of the function mode appears.
The function buttons are the following (left to right):
Alerts function button (bell): Opens the Alerts function mode that allows you to perform tasks related to alerts
such as acknowledging and discarding alerts. The Alerts function button flashes if unacknowledged alarms exist in
the Site Management Portal UI.
Summary function button (piece of paper): Opens the Summary function mode that allows you to perform
tasks related to summaries such as changing item values.
Schedules function button (clock): Opens the Schedules function mode that allows you to perform tasks
related to schedules such as adding temporary overrides.
Diagnostics function button (microscope): Opens the Diagnostics function mode that allows you to monitor
system performance.
Tools button (hammer and wrench): Opens the Tools function mode that allows Metasys system Administrators
to update the Ready Access Portal with changes made to the Metasys site. Refer to the Ready Access Portal
Software Installation Instructions (LIT-12011523) for information on considerations and tasks for Metasys system
Administrators.
Logout Button
The Logout button allows you to log out of the Ready Access Portal UI and return to the logon screen. When
you are finished, be sure to log out of the UI to make sure your Metasys site remains secure.
Note: Simply closing your browser window or tab does not necessarily log you out of the Ready Access Portal UI
if you have other browser windows or tabs open.
Ready Access Portal Help

Note: Clicking the Back button does not log you out of the Ready Access Portal UI.
See Logging Out.
Name of Current User
The name of the user currently logged on to the system appears on the Function bar just under the Logout button.
Selection Area
The Selection area contains the following:
•
•
A drop-down list box that contains all user views present in the Site Director that have been assigned to you
(currently logged on user).
A selection tree that represents the folder structure of the user view you select in the drop-down list box. The
folder you select in the selection tree sets the context for what appears in the Workspace area.
Note: All user views visible in the Ready Access Portal UI are the same user views present in the Site Director.
(User Views are assigned per user; therefore, the user view visible in the Ready Access Portal UI is the same
user view present in the Site Director for each specific user.)
The Selection area appears in the Alerts, Summary, Schedules, and Diagnostics function modes. The Selection
area also allows you to select graphics and folders that are present in the user view.
Note: The Selection area does not appear in the Tools function mode or in the Dashboard.
The twin arrows on the side of the Selection area allow you to expand or collapse the Selection area and increase
or decrease the area available for the Workspace area.
Workspace Area
The Workspace area contains different views depending on the function mode you select, the task you are performing,
and the item you select in the Selection area (if present).
The Workspace area has the following sections:
•
•
title bar
view
Workspace Title Bar
The Workspace title bar contains the name of the view and the context of the view; for example, the name of the
folder you select in the selection tree or the name of a graphic.
The Workspace title bar also may contain the buttons in Table 2.

Each function mode supports one or more Workspace views. For more information on the views available in each
function mode, see Function Mode List.
For more information on tasks you can perform in the Workspace views, see Task List.
Ready Access Portal System Information Page
The System Information link appears at the bottom-right corner of the Ready Access Portal UI screen. When you
click this link, the following system information appears in a new browser window:
•
•
•
•
•
Ready Access Portal software version
Metasys Graphics Package software version (that is, the version of the Metasys Graphics Package currently
installed on the Ready Access Portal Server)
system color key for statuses
system color key for alert levels (priority range)
copyright information
The system color keys reflect the color assignments defined by Metasys system preferences. Status colors are used
in the Standard Summary view, Tailored Summary view, and Graphic view to indicate the status of an item (for
example, alarm, overridden, or offline).
Alert level colors are used in the Alert Summary view to indicate the priority level of an alert. A priority level
encompasses a particular set of alert priorities and reflects the relative severity or importance of the alert. Alert
priorities range from 1 (highest priority/importance) to 255 (lowest severity/importance).
Ready Access Portal Help

For information on the system alert and status colors defined, refer to the Preferences section of the Metasys® SMP
Help (LIT-1201793).
Function Mode List
The Dashboard displays a view from one of the function modes.
The following function modes allow you to perform specific tasks in the Ready Access Portal UI:
•
Alerts Function Mode
•
Summary Function Mode
•
Schedules Function Mode
•
Diagnostics Function Mode
•
Tools Function Mode
Web Browser Interaction
The Ready Access Portal UI uses select web browser features in the following ways:
•
•
•
Text Size: The Ready Access Portal UI responds to changes you make for the web browser text size.
Favorites: You can bookmark the Ready Access Portal UI, the login address, and specific views within the UI.
Full Screen: The F11 key allows you to view the Ready Access Portal UI without the web browser framework
(Full Screen view). We recommend you view the Ready Access Portal UI in Full Screen view to maximize room
available for Ready Access Portal UI content.
Keep in mind that if you use Full Screen view, you do not have access to the web browser Back, Forward, Refresh,
and other buttons. As an alternative, you can use key strokes or the mouse right-click menu to navigate.
Navigation/Menus: When you are logged in to the Ready Access Portal UI, use care when using Windows® Internet
Explorer® web browser buttons and menus.
Back (or Backspace key): Returns you to the previous address. If you navigate from the Ready Access Portal UI
to another address while you are logged in, you can click the Back button to return to the UI. Navigating to another
address does not log you out of the Ready Access Portal UI. If you use the Back button to log in multiple users,
devices in your Metasys system may reset.
Forward: Allows you to move forward in the browsing history. If you use the Back button, you can use the Forward
button to return to the next address that you accessed.
Refresh: Refreshes the values that appear in the current view.
The Ready Access Portal UI refreshes automatically every 5 to 15 seconds. If a problem exists with the automatic
refresh, an orange triangle with an exclamation point appears next to the Logout button. For more information, see
Ready Access Portal Troubleshooting.
Home: If you click Home, your designated Home page appears. You are not logged out of the Ready Access Portal
UI.
Favorites: You can bookmark the address for the Ready Access Portal UI, the login address, and specific views
within the UI. If you are not logged in, and you click a Ready Access Portal UI bookmark, the login screen appears.
New Windows: If you want to run more than one Ready Access Portal UI window, open a new window from the
Start menu or double-click the Internet Explorer web browser icon. Do not create a window using the File > New
Window selection, File > New > Tab selection, or the Ctrl-N shortcut.
Ready Access Portal Help

Timeout
The Ready Access Portal UI supports the Never Terminate setting of a user profile in the Site Management Portal
UI Security Administrator System. If a user is configured to never time out, and the user logs on to the Ready Access
Portal UI, the user is never logged off due to inactivity.
Note: The handheld Ready Access Portal UI does not support this functionality.
Note: Users that are configured to never time out still are logged off from the system if the Metasys system
Administrator initiates an update or if the computer running the Ready Access Portal software restarts.
Dashboard
Dashboard Overview
The Dashboard is your home view and appears when you click the Dashboard button (if present) and appears as
the default when you first log on. The view set as your Dashboard can be the following views from the Alerts,
Summary, Schedules, or Diagnostics function modes:
•
Alarm Summary view
•
Standard Summary view
•
Device Summary view
•
Tailored Summary view
•
Graphic view
•
Schedule Summary view
•
Schedule Details view
•
Trend Summary view
•
Trend Details view
If you are a Tenant user, you can access only the view that appears as the Dashboard and any views you can access
via a link in the Dashboard.
Dashboard Tasks
The following task section applies to the Dashboard:
Setting a View as Your Dashboard
Note: Tenant users cannot set a view as their Dashboard. Tenant users should contact the Metasys system Standard
Access Administrator to set a view as their Dashboard.
Note: See the Task List section for tasks associated with views that can be set as the Dashboard.
Dashboard Content
The Dashboard displays the view you (or your Metasys system Standard Access Administrator) set using the Set
as Dashboard button.
Until you set which view appears as the Dashboard, a message appears indicating that your dashboard is not defined.
If this happens, Tenant users should contact their Metasys system Standard Access Administrator to have their
Dashboard set.
Tip: The Dashboard function mode does not have a Selection area.
Ready Access Portal Help
10
Consider the following behavior when you click the Set as Dashboard button:
•
The specific view in place when you click the Set as Dashboard button is the view that appears as the Dashboard.
Example
•
•
If a Device Summary view is visible when you click the Set as Dashboard button, the Device Summary is the
view that appears as the Dashboard (as opposed to the Standard Summary view, which is the default view for
the Summary function mode).
If a view set as the Dashboard has links or navigation, these links and navigation continue working in the
Dashboard, but the view set as the Dashboard does not change.
Example
•
•
•
If you have a Standard Summary view as your Dashboard, and you click a device link, the Device Summary
view for that device appears in the Dashboard. The next time you click the Dashboard button, the Standard
Summary view appears.
If you sort the view information before you click the Set as Dashboard button, the view that appears as the
Dashboard retains the sort.
If you are viewing the Dashboard, and navigate to another view through your Dashboard, you can click the Set
as Dashboard button in the new view. The Dashboard updates to display the new view. Tenant users do not
have this capability.
Alerts Function Mode
Alerts Function Mode Overview
The Alerts function mode allows you to detect and manage alerts for your system. If you have the required privileges,
you can acknowledge and discard alerts.
What is an alert?
An alert is a system alarm/event that the currently logged on user has the access privileges to acknowledge.
The Alerts function mode contains the following view:
•
Alert Summary view
Alert Summary View
The Alert Summary view is the only view available for the Alerts function mode. The Alert Summary view displays
the top 100 (newest, highest priority) pending alerts that you have the access privileges to acknowledge. By default,
alerts are limited to the previous 5 days and appear in the context of the entire site (unfiltered).
You also can filter the Alert Summary view by selecting a folder in the selection tree and clicking the Filter button
(see Workspace Title Bar buttons). When filtered, the Alert Summary view displays the top 100 pending alerts for
the items contained in the folder you selected in the selection tree. If you click a new folder in the selection tree while
the Alert Summary view is filtered, the view displays alerts in the context of the new folder. If you click the Filter
button to remove the filter, the view once again displays alerts in the context of the entire site and the folder selected
in the selection tree does not impact the view. Items displayed in the Ready Access Portal UI use color to indicate
the state of alerts and overrides. See Ready Access Portal System Information Page for details.
The user view folders are used to filter the Alert Summary function based on a parent/child relationship. For example,
a site with five NAEs may have a user view that contains each NAE device without any other points or devices added
under each NAE. When you select one of the individual NAEs as the filter from the user view, any child devices or
points of that NAE are the points shown in the Alert Summary view.

the alert according to the Site Management Portal UI. This means that the alert disappears from the
Site Management Portal UI but not the alarm database.
You can discard alerts only if you have the appropriate privileges.
Note:
This column does not have a name. Look for the column on the right with garbage can icons.

Tailored Summary View
The Ready Access Portal UI Summary function mode supports Tailored Summaries. When you view a folder in the
selection tree that has Tailored Summaries associated with it, the default view (either a Tailored Summary view or
the Standard Summary view) appears in the Workspace. The Workspace title bar shows the name of the Tailored
Summary or Standard Summary, followed by the name of the folder selected in the selection tree. If you click the
right-facing arrow to the left of the Tailored Summary or Standard Summary name, you can select between viewing
the available Tailored Summaries or viewing the Standard Summary. See Standard Summary View.
When you display a Tailored Summary, the columns and key data appear. You cannot rearrange the columns, but
you can sort them by clicking a column title. Any graphics linked to the Tailored Summary are available in the Ready
Access Portal UI, subject to requirements in the Graphic View section. If you click a link to a device in the Tailored
Summary view, the Device Summary view for that device appears. See Device Summary View. You also can change
the value of an item by clicking a value link. Tailored Summaries use the same color preferences for alerts and
overrides as those used in the Site Management Portal UI. See Ready Access Portal System Information Page for
details.
For information on Tailored Summaries, refer to the Metasys® SMP Help (LIT-1201793).

Graphic View
Graphics appear in the user view tree as stand-alone items with a graphic symbol next to them (
for User Graphics
Tool [UGT] graphics, and
for Graphics Plus graphics) and in Tailored Summaries using the same symbols. See
Tailored Summary View for details on Tailored Summaries in the Ready Access Portal UI. The Workspace title bar
shows the word Graphics and then the name of the graphic, separated by a colon.
Graphics displayed in the Ready Access Portal UI use color to indicate the state of alerts and overrides. See Ready
Access Portal System Information Page for details. If you add new graphics in the Site Management Portal UI, you
must perform a synch. You can change point values using graphics in the Ready Access Portal UI.
You also can add temporary overrides from a graphic when the symbol in the graphic is bound to a schedule.
And lastly, you can view trend information for an object from a Graphics+ graphic if trend data exists for the object.
For details, see Opening the Trend Module.
Keep the following in mind when using graphics in the Ready Access Portal UI:
•
•
You can display graphics while in the Summary function mode only.
You must have Microsoft® Silverlight™ plug-in to view graphics. If you do not have the Silverlight plug-in installed,
you are prompted to do so the first time you view a graphic. For additional installation instructions, refer to the
Ready Access Portal Software Installation Instructions (LIT-12011523).

For information on how to create Graphics+ objects, refer to the Graphic Generation Tool Help (LIT-12011697).
Note: You must have the Microsoft® Silverlight 5.0 (or higher) plug-in to view Graphics+ objects created by the
GGT. If you do not have the Silverlight 5.0 (or higher) plug-in installed, you are prompted to do so the first
time you view a graphic. After you follow the prompt and install Silverlight 5.0 (or higher), log off the Metasys
system, close your browser for the change to take effect, then log in to the Metasys system again. For
additional installation instructions, refer to the ADS, ADX, and SCT Installation and Upgrade Instructions
Wizard (LIT-12011521).
Graphics+ Runtime Concepts
GEL Overview
When you create a graphic with the Graphic Generation Tool (GGT), the Graphic Enterprise Library (GEL) provides
the following elements for your use:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Basic elements (for example, Advanced Value Box, Inline Command Box, Key Data, Gauges)
Electrical and fire elements
Floor plan elements (Building, Floor, Floor Group, Room Status)
HVAC elements (all HVAC air and water elements)
Lighting, network, security, and terminal unit elements
Templates (Base Template, Mixed Air Dual Path, VAV Series Fan)
As you use these elements to create a graphical representation of your building automation system, you can also
create bindings between the elements and Metasys® objects. These bound elements allow you to monitor and
control your facility from your computer.
This reference describes all of the elements found in the GEL. The information for each element includes the following

Runtime characteristics
Configuration Mode Versus Runtime Mode
When you use GGT to create graphics, you work in configuration mode. This mode allows you to configure each
graphic to look and behave in certain ways based on the user-configurable properties and bindings that are available
to the graphic.
When you view the graphics in the Metasys system (System Configuration Tool, Site Management Portal, or Ready
Access Portal), you work in runtime mode. In runtime mode, the graphic appears as it was configured in the GGT.
If you view the graphic on an online system (Site Management Portal or Ready Access Portal), data values appear
and animations occur based on those data values (for example, a bound fan graphic spins if the fan is on).
Ready Access Portal Help: Graphic Enterprise Library
42
Note: You must have the Microsoft Silverlight 5.0 (or higher) plug-in to view Graphics+ objects created by the GGT.
If you do not have the Silverlight 5.0 (or higher) plug-in installed, you are prompted to do so the first time you
view a graphic. After you follow the prompt and install Silverlight 5.0 (or higher), log off the Metasys system,
close your browser for the change to take effect, then log in to the Metasys system again. For additional
installation instructions, refer to the ADS, ADX, and SCT Installation and Upgrade Instructions Wizard
(LIT-12011521).
Graphics+ Auto-Refreshing
Graphics+ objects use an auto-refresh function that updates the graphic once 50,000 value updates to the graphic
occur during one Ready Access Portal UI session. When the 50,000 update threshold approaches, a dialog box
appears (Figure 8) to notify you that the graphic must be refreshed. Click Refresh Now to refresh the graphic
immediately, click Delay to delay the refresh for 60 seconds, or wait 15 seconds for the system to perform the refresh.
When a graphic is refreshed, it reverts to its default display settings.
Figure 8: Auto-Refresh Dialog Box
If you delay the refresh operation, a red 60-second countdown box appears in the upper-right corner of the graphic.
You can delay the refresh only once.
If the system refreshed the graphic, a notification message appears (Figure 9) when a refresh has occurred. Click
OK to continue.
Figure 9: Auto-Refresh Notification
User Actions Panel
Many elements have a User Actions Panel that appears when you right-click the item when displayed within the Site
Management Portal, System Configuration Tool (SCT), or the Ready Access Portal (Figure 10).

Advanced Value Box
This element represents an Advanced Value Box. It allows you to display information for one or two Metasys items
(for example, zone temperature and zone temperature setpoint) and send commands to the items.
Figure 12: Advanced Value Box - Single-Value Display
Figure 13: Advanced Value Box - Two-Value Display
The Advanced Value Box element has the following runtime characteristics:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
It consists of one or two Inline Command Boxes. All functionality of the Inline Command Box applies to both the
primary and secondary bound item. For information about Inline Command Box functionality, see Inline Command
Box.
If you specify a secondary binding, during runtime the left side of the value box contains the primary binding
information and the right side of the value box contains the secondary binding information. If you do not specify
a secondary binding, the Advanced Value Box contains only the primary binding information.
If you configured units to display for the Advanced Value Box, the units appear on both sides of the two-value
display window.
It displays in either the collapsed or expanded state, depending on how you configured the element. For example,
if you configured the element to appear collapsed, the element appears initially collapsed at runtime. When the
element is collapsed, it still displays the status color that corresponds to the status of the primary bound item.
If you did not configure the Label Binding property, the string specified within the Label property appears. If you
configured the Label Binding property, the attribute value of the bound object appears.
If the string that makes up the label is too long for the allotted space, the label is truncated with trailing ellipses.
When you place your cursor over the label, a tooltip displays containing the full label string.

Basic Fan
This element represents a basic fan. The blades rotate when the fan is running and stop when the fan is off.
Figure 14: Basic Fan
The Basic Fan element has the following runtime characteristics:
•
•
The color of the fan blades reflects the current value of the bound item (for example, stopped or running) as
defined by the Fan Status section within Metasys system preferences. By default, green indicates a running fan
and red a stopped fan. However, if the status of the bound item is not normal (for example, offline), the color of
the fan blades reflects the status of the item as defined by the Status Colors section within Metasys system
preferences. In other words, the status color for a non-normal item supersedes the fan status color.
When the current value of the Value binding is:
-
Off - the fan blades do not spin.
On - the fan blades spin.
Ready Access Portal Help: Graphic Enterprise Library

Basic Value Box
This element represents a Basic Value Box. Unlike other elements, it does not support commanding or navigating.
Instead, it is used simply for the display of the current attribute value of a bound Metasys item, along with an optional
indication of status. It functions as a simple, non-editable value box.
Figure 15: Basic Value Box
The Basic Value Box element has the following runtime characteristics:
•
•
•
If you define the Basic Value Box to show status, the Basic Value Box element sets its background based on
the status color associated in Metasys system preferences for the item’s current status. Any user-configured
background color and foreground color no longer apply. If you do not configure status to appear (for example,
the Show Status property is False), the background color and font color appear as configured.
It displays a User Actions Panel (with a right-click) when displayed within the Site Management Portal, System
Configuration Tool, or the Ready Access Portal. See User Actions Panel.
If the width of the Basic Value Box is not large enough to accommodate the full value, the value is not shown.
In this case, you can see the value by viewing the tooltip. To correct, open the graphics file with GGT and enlarge
the width of the Basic Value Box or reduce the font size.

Button
This element represents a Button. It allows you (with proper authorization) to navigate to a Metasys item, a URL, or
an application.
Figure 16: Button
The Button element has the following runtime characteristics:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When the button is active, it brightens and changes to blue when you place your cursor over the button.
When you place your cursor over the button, a tooltip shows the full text of the URL, Metasys item, or application
to navigate to and the pointer changes to a finger pointer.
Buttons configured to be hidden have the same characteristics as visible buttons, but they are not visible in the
graphic. Hidden buttons are still active, and they provide the same tooltips as visible buttons.
If you did not define a navigation binding, no action takes place on a single left-click.
If the button navigates to a URL (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP), a separate browser window or tab opens to the URL
when you click the button. This navigation is constrained by the capabilities of your browser and operating system.
If the button navigates to a file (for example, file:C\My Documents\Sequence of Operations.pdf), the appropriate
application starts and opens the file. If the application required to open the file cannot be found on the local
computer, the button does nothing when clicked.
If the button navigates to a Metasys item (for example, a graphic) with no alias, you navigate to the graphic after
clicking the button. If the button navigates to a Metasys item (for example a graphic) with an alias, the defined
alias string is resolved by the destination graphic, and you navigate to the graphic after clicking the button.
If you have permission to view the button’s bound Metasys item, clicking the button once takes you to that item.
If you do not have permission to view the bound item, the button is inactive (it is not clickable).
On the Ready Access Portal, the item does not need to be available in the selected navigation tree for the
navigation to work. If no associated Ready Access Portal view exists for the item to which you are navigating,
the following error message appears:
The linked item cannot be viewed in this application. A workstation is necessary
to view the linked item.
•
•
Navigating to an application is currently only supported on the Site Management Portal and SCT.
On the Ready Access Portal, browser security restrictions prevent you from launching applications. If you configure
a button to launch an application, the following error message appears when you click the button in the Ready
Access Portal:
Web browser security does not allow automatic launching of local applications.
Please use the Run command from your Start menu to launch the following: <APP PATH>

The Coil Mode binding within the Water Coil group supports two animations: heat and cool. If the coil is used for
heating, the animated pipes inside the coil appear bright red, while the non-animated pipes appear dark red. If
the coil is used for cooling, the animated pipes inside the coil appear bright blue, while the non-animated pipes
appear dark blue.
The Supply Fan Status binding has the following runtime characteristics:
•
•
When the value of the Supply Fan Status binding is:
- Off - the fan blades do not spin.
- On - the fan blades spin.
The color of the fan blades reflects the current value of the Supply Fan Status item (for example, stopped or
running) as defined by the Fan Status section within Metasys system preferences. By default, green indicates
a running fan and red a stopped fan. However, if the status of the item is non-normal (for example, offline), the
color of the fan blades reflects the status of the item as defined by the Status Colors section within Metasys
system preferences. In other words, the status color for a not normal item supersedes the fan status color.
