The Module Store is a listing of available LogicModules and packages. You can use the Module store to search for modules, install new modules, upgrade existing modules and packages, and create a new package of modules.
Note: The Module Store is available as part of LM Exchange (Beta). For more information, see LM Exchange (Beta) Overview.
Filtering and Display Options
By default, the modules list displays Packages that have Official Support from LogicMonitor. Filtering options allow you to quickly search for specific LogicModules by type, tags, keywords, and other options. You can activate the filtering options by selecting them using the funnel icon and its menu.
The following is a description of all the filtering options available on the Module Store:
|Filter Modules…||Use the search bar to filter the list of modules based on keywords in the module’s description.|
|Saved Views||After filtering the table for the modules you want to find, you can save the set of filters as view to run again later.|
Select a saved view from the list or save a new view.
|Type||Click the icons to find packages or modules based on their type. By default, the Module Store displays Packages, which contain the set of LogicModules that are required to monitor a particular technology. |
For more information, see LogicModule Overview.
|Support||Filter for modules and packages based on the types of support offered, which can be Community, Deprecated, Official, or Security Review. |
Community and deprecated LogicModules do not qualify for technical support.
|Customized||Displays the packages and modules you have installed that have uncommitted changes. This will include packages if they contain one or more customized modules.|
|Update Skipped||Displays the modules where you skipped a previous update. This allows you to review the list of modules and update them to the latest available version.|
|Author||Filter for modules and packages created by This account or All.|
|Status||Filter for modules and packages based on their status: Installed, New, Outdated, Downgraded. The default is All.|
|Tags||Filter for modules and packages based on the tags that have been assigned to them. You can search for the tags, select to add the tags to the filter, or select all. The default is All.|
|Visibility||Filter for modules and packages that are Private or Public. |
Private modules are hidden from other users and only available on your account portal. Public modules will include all modules available to the community.
|Find by Locator…||Search for a specific version of a custom LogicModule using its LM Locator code, which is assigned to every module as part of their version stamp when they are committed to LM Exchange. |
If there is an available update, you will have the option to install it.
|SNMP SysOID Maps||SysOID Maps were moved to their own page, which you can access from its icon next to the Find by Locator search bar.|
|Clear||Reset all the filters to the default, which displays the Packages that are Official.|
Bulk Actions and Status
The first column in the table are checkboxes. When you check one or more boxes, the Actions menu displays with bulk actions you can take on the selected Modules. You can also complete these actions for individual modules using the Status column.
The Status column displays the install status and available options for each module. If the module is already installed and has a new version available, you might see the action to Update or Skip Update. Click on these icons to complete the action.
- Install–The Install button displays when a new LogicModule, that you do not currently have installed, is available for import. For packages, this option displays when all members of the package have not been installed.
- Update–The Update button displays when a new version is available for a LogicModule that is currently installed locally.
- Skip Update–The Skip Update button allows you to ignore an update. You will not see this option again until another update is available.
Viewing the Details Panel
Click a row in the modules table to open a panel with information about the package or module. This detail view does not allow you to edit the module. If there is a newer version of the module available, this view will display an install button to allow you to import the new version of the LogicModule into your portal.
The details panel for the packages will display a description (if one was provided by the creator) and more information in two tabs:
- Modules–This tab lists the individual modules that are in the package.
- SNMP SysOID Maps–This tab lists the maps if any exist in the package.
Depending on the module type and the configuration of the module, the details panel will display different tabs of information.
- Info–This tab displays the LogicModule name, Locator code, and date it was last updated. You can also find Basic Information (such as Module type, version, and status), and a Description or Technical notes if they are provided.
- Commit History–This tab which shows you the history of versions for the module.
- Other tabs will vary depending on the configurations of the module. For example, you might see tabs for Alert Settings, AppliesTo, Active Discovery, Collection, Datapoint, and more if they apply to this module.
