The Flow View provides a top level listing of the flows associated with a chosen device. Flows are displayed in tabular form.

Each row in the table (that spans 3 lines) is a single flow on the device. To see more flows, scroll down inside the table body.

Navigating to the Flow View

You can get to the Flow View in a few ways, although it is not on the main navigation menu.

Topology View

To get to the flows view for a certain device on the Topology View, select a device, make sure the Details Pane is enabled, and click on the button on the far right as shown below:

This will navigate you to the flows table for the device you have selected.

Device View

To get to the flows table from the Device View, select a device (row) of the table to have the details panel appear. To get to the flows view, click on the button as shown below:

This will navigate you to the flows table for the device you have selected.

Query String via URL

You can also get to the flows view for a specific device by altering the query string in the URL.

The URL format for the flows table is:

http://<HOST>:<PORT>/onos/ui/index.html#/flow?devId=<DEVICE URI>

Notice that the end of the URL contains query parameters. If you choose to navigate to the flows view directly, type in the device's URI after ?devId=.

For example, to get to flows table for the device with the URI "of:0000000000000002" while using the domain localhost and the default port, use the URL:



The header of the Flow View will tell you which device's flows you are currently viewing, with how many flows there are in total on that device.

Table Body

Column Headers

The column headers for each section in the table are sortable (see tabular view page). By default, the flows are sorted in ascending order by Flow ID. You can toggle between ascending and descending on any header.

Information Not Under a Header

For readability, Criteria and Treatment Instructions about the flow are displayed in the lines below the other information displayed in columns.
