The Agent Administration UI is the central UI to check the status of Simple Diagnostics Agent (SDA), to send ad-hoc operation commands to the Agents and check the returns in logs. You can search for hosts registered in the LMDB and install Simple Diagnostics Agents (SDA) on this hosts (if not already done automatically)
Figure 1 The Agent Administration UI and the different Areas
The Agent Administration UI is divided into three areas:
The user can search corresponding host by host name, by logical host name or by Technical System name.
It shows the user one or more hosts which fit the search criteria. Selecting one more hosts in the result list offers different actions on this host(s).
Information about the agent installation and configuration as well as errors are displayed on following tabs of this area:
the search area offers 3 differnt tabs's

After a search by host, physical host or technical system, the result area lists all the hosts which match the criteria.
The area has two buttons “Display Host” and “Configure Manually” as well as actions that can be executed on one or more hosts. For more details please see Actions.

This metric measures the availability of a Simple Diagnostics Agent.
|White||The self-monitoring is not configured|
|Green||The self-monitoring metrics are received regulary in the central FRUN ABAP|
|Red||The selfmonitoring is configured, but the self-monitoring metrics are not received|
|White||There is nor was a configuration requested to be transferred to the Simple Diagnostics Agent.|
The configuration transfer from the backend to the Simple Diagnostics Agent is currently processed.
|Yellow pending||The configuration transfer form the backend to the Simple Diagnostics Agent is waiting until it can be processed. If this is an ongoing status, check the troubleshooting guide|
Ýellow Confirmation outdated
There is a new configuration version to be verified by the backend. Until the verification has been processed, the confirmation status is outdated.
|Green up to date||The configuration was sent successfully from the backend system to the Simple Diagnostics Agent.|
|Green Confirmed||The metrics are sent successfully from the Solution Manager to the Diagnostics Agent.|
|Red||The configuration could not be done because of internal errors.|
The possible actions depend on the number of selected hosts in the result list. Some operations are single host operations (Agent Actions) others are multi selection actions (Mass Actions).
Furthermore, it depends on the authorization which actions are displayed for the user. For more details see Authorization for Agent Administration UI Action

The mass action enables multi-selection at the host result table and executes the selected mass operation on the selected agents.
The authorization object SR_SDA_AUT has the only field ACTVT that defines general access authorization of the user to the agent administration.
Users that have Execute permission should have Display permission.
Users that have Administer permission should have Display and Execute permission.
Users that have Debug permission should have Display and Execute permission.
Due to security reasons the permission Debug should be given in rare cases.
