Getting to know ERA Web Console

ESET Remote Administrator Web Console is the main interface which connects to the ERA Server. You can think of it as a control panel, a central place from which you can manage all of your ESET security solutions. It is a web-based interface which can be accessed using a browser (see Supported Web browsers) from any place and any device with internet access.

The basic principles in GUI orientation are:

The current user is always shown in upper right, where the timeout for his/her session counts down. You can click Logout next to the countdown to log out at any time. As soon as a session times out (because of user inactivity), a user must log in again.
You can click ? at the top of any screen to view Screen help for that specific screen.
The Menu is accessible on the left at all times except when using a Wizard. Place your mouse on the left side of the screen to display the menu at any time. The menu also contains Quick Links and displays your Web Console version.
The Cogwheel icon always denotes a context menu.


Screens with tree have specific controls. The tree itself is on the left with actions bellow. Click an item from the tree to display options for that item.


Tables allow you to manage units from rows individually or in a group (when more rows are selected). Click a row to display options for units in that row. Data in tables can be filtered and sorted.


Objects in ERA can be edited using Wizards. All Wizards share some common behavior:

Steps are vertically oriented from top to bottom.
User can return to any step at any time.
Invalid input data are marked when you move your cursor to a new field. The Wizard step containing invalid input data is marked as well.
User can check for invalid data any time by clicking Mandatory Settings.
Finish is not available until all input data is correct.
