ecFlow's documentation is now on readthedocs!

ecFlowUI allows some degree of changes to be made to the structure of suites once they are running on servers.

Re-ordering nodes

The Order sub-menu in the node context menu allows for nodes to be re-ordered with various options. Suppose that part of the node hierarchy has a suite containing four families: s/ f1,f2,f3,f4. This table shows what would happen when each operation is performed on node f3 (assume the nodes are reset to their initial state before each operation) :

OperationResult when performed on f3
(Initial state)s/ f1,f2,f3,f4
Ups/ f1,f3,f2,f4
Downs/ f1,f2,f4,f3
Tops/ f3,f1,f2,f4
Bottoms/ f1,f2,f4,f3
Alphabeticallys/ f1,f2,f3,f4

Moving nodes

Nodes can be re-parented and even moved to different servers. In order to allow nodes to be moved between servers displayed in different tabs and windows, the following approach is taken. First, select a node which is to be moved. From the context menu, select Special → Mark for move. If it is not already suspended, ecFlowUI will suspend it for you. Now select the node that will be its new parent. From the context menu, select Special → Move marked node here.

Note that there are some combinations that will not work, e.g. moving a suite into another suite. This operation should be performed with caution, as the moved nodes may have dependencies which are not met by its new location.
