The Operation Center allows you to maintain your Operations and the information about them.

To access the Operation Center in the Console menu, go to Tools > Operation Center.

 

When the application has loaded, the top of the screen will show the current status of the Operation Agent service.

The Operation Center will monitor the Operation Agents which your CyberStore may be running. There will be a Start button if the agent is not running, and pressing it will start the service and replace the Start button with a Stop button. However, if the start fails, the Start button will remain. Once the agent is running, pressing the Stop button will create a Stop job to be executed immediately.

The number shown inside parentheses after the Running status indicator is the system ProcessID for the agent which can help to identify the site's specific Operation Agent within the server environment.

Below the status indicator the Operation Center screen appears.
