Navigate WatchGuard WebCenter

Because WatchGuard WebCenter is a dynamic, interactive, real-time web UI application, with a single click you can quickly move from page to page, see more refined data in your log messages and reports, and manage your certificates. The available navigation options are different for different pages in the web UI. After you have logged in, you can select options from the Log Manager, Report Manager, and CA Manager menus.

About the Log Manager Devices and Servers Pages

These two examples show the main LOG MANAGER> Devices page that appears when you first log in to Log and Report Manager (if you have installed both the Log Server and the Report Server on the same computer) and the main LOG MANAGER > Servers page. The navigation options for these two pages are the same.
