I am trying to create multi-level subpages in bb-hosts file and am so far unsuccessful. I want to create a hierarchy something like this:
From main BB screen, have a page titled "SAP Systems". When I select that page, have it display sub pages for "Production", "Test", etc. Then if I select Test, it displays subpages for each test SID such as T00, T01, T02, etc Then select the SID to see info about database server and application server.
(top level BB screen)
select SAP Systems and get subpage that displays
select either of these subpages, and it will display another set of subpages, one for each SID (such as T00, T01, etc). For example, select Test Systems and it displays subpages for
Select any of these subpages, and then you get information about the database servers and application servers for that SID.
I found a link on the Quest knowledgebase, and the sample screens were what I was looking for, but the bb-hosts file they included did not match their screens.
You can create an extra level of drilldown by configuring display zones. Doing so will change the default URL to your BBDISPLAY. To do this:
1. Edit $BBHOME/etc/bbdef-server.sh (%BBHOME%\etc\bbdef.cfg on Windows).
2. Set BBCURRDISP="something"
3. Edit your bb-hosts file (bb-hosts.cfg on Windows) and use the "display" token to create the third level drilldown you're looking for, something like:

Note: Setting BBCURRDISP="something" will change the default URL of your BBDISPLAY to http://bbserver/bb/something/bb.html
