  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using the administrative console to  *
    *                  manage their enviornment.                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: It is hard to distingush                *
    *                      environements by looking at the         *
    *                      console.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Using the console identity string helps to  *
    *                  identify which environment the console you  *
    *                  are looking at corresponds to.              *
    ****************************************************************
    There is no way to change colors on the console to identify
    which environment the console is for.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code was added to provide setting the color of the navigation
    links so that it is easier to visually distinguish console
    envirnoments.  The console identity panel allows you to choose
    the RGB collor to display the console navitation links.
