About this task Procedure 1. Click Settings > Console Preference Profiles in the console navigation. The Console Preference Profiles page is displayed with the list of preference profiles that have already been created in the console. 2. Click New . The properties panel for the new preference profile is displayed. 3. Required: Enter a descriptive name for the preference profile. Consider how the name reflects the roles that have been assigned to it or the console settings that are defined. 4. Optional: Edit the system-provided unique name for the preference profile. Accept the default value or provide a custom value. 5. Optional: Select a theme for the preference profile. A theme dictates how elements of the console are displayed, for example, background colors and contrast. You can select a theme, click Preview , and navigate to areas of the console to assess the impact of your selection. The theme that you select is committed only when you save the preference profile, so that you can preview other themes before deciding which one is appropriate. 6. Indicate whether the navigation tree should be hidden. This might be preferable when the user has few pages to access and display space in the console is better reserved for page content. 7. Optional: Use the Console Bidirection Options to set the direction to display console content and text. The default option lets the browser dictate the text and content direction, for example, for Arabic and Hebrew, the text is displayed right-to-left, whereas for other languages it is displayed left-to-right. Alternatively, you can decide to set the text and content direction to either left-to-right or right-to-left. In the Text direction list, you can also select Contextual Input so that for portlets that include text entry fields, the direction of text is dependent on the language used to enter data. 8. Select which view options should be available for users in the role. 9. Expand the section Roles Using this Preference Profile . 10. Click Add and select one or more roles to use this preference profile. When assigning roles, you might notice some roles missing from the list. This means they are assigned to another preference profile. The role must be removed from the other profile before it can be assigned to this one. 11. Select the default console view for this preference profile. The default view is the one that is selected when users in this role log in to the console. This field is enabled when at least one role has been added for this preference profile. 12. Click Save to save your changes and return to Console Preference Profiles. Results The new preference profile is created and listed on the main panel for Console Preference Profiles. 70 Tivoli Integrated Portal Online help
