Here is a list of the common components of Distribution Engine that you may interact with. A full list of components can be found once installed or during the install process.
The Distribution Engine app is split into a total of 9 tabs.
- Distribution Console - Shows the current status of the Engine including scheduler settings and today's counts for distributions and alerts.
- Distribution Classifier - Configure Maps and Territories for classification of objects.
