This project is a diff utility tool that is part of a product called Solarwinds Configuration Manager. This product allows system administrators to identify changes in their server configuration profiles across their organization. This was a highly requested tool from customers so we decided to build it.
This screen is used in order to view individual file differences across nodes as well as a timeline which shows when the changes were made and how the changes could potentially affect other configuration profiles.
UX Research / User Testing
First reached out to customers who had requested this tool and provided them with a questionnaire asking for specific features they wanted. After gathering results, worked with product management to flush out UI requirements based on commonly asked for features.
Initial mockups were designed and presented to questionnaire participants for feedback. Several prototype user sessions resulted in final designs.
