Navigation between Clouds, Sites, and Devices Follow
The IgniteNet cloud is made up of three main levels of organization:
- Cloud-level (highest)
- Device-level (lowest)
The main nav menu on the left will change depending on what context you're in while interacting with your cloud account.
For example, after you log in, you'll be directed to your default cloud dashboard. The context here is "cloud context", so you'll see a summary of all of the sites within this cloud.
As you drill down to site-level or device-level pages, you can easily navigate back to the cloud level, as shown in the animated GIF above.
