Merakifly Technical Documentation 


evoila Merakifly software simplifies the health-check process for all organization-connected devices. It transforms into an effective network troubleshooting tool by systematically identifying and presenting relevant device information.  

With this software, gain a comprehensive overview of your organization’s networks, including insights into current device statuses, network details, and a history of errors and event logs. 

Login page 

The login page serves as the gateway for users to access secured areas within the application. It provides a straightforward interface for users to authenticate themselves and gain entry into the system. When users submit their credentials on the login page, the LoginComponent verifies this information through authentication mechanisms, which may include our internal authentication system or external identity providers like Azure or GitHub. If the credentials are valid, users are redirected to the dashboard. In case of invalid credentials or network issues, error-handling mechanisms ensure users receive helpful feedback.

Networks list 

Each network listing in the dashboard includes the following information: 

  • Network Name: The name of the network which serves as its identifier 
  • Status Indicator: An indicator that visually represents the status of the network. The available statuses for networks are: 
  • Green indicator means that the network doesn’t have recent alerting or offline devices 
  • Red indicator means that network has some recently offline devices 
  • Yellow indicator means that network have recently alerting devices 
  • Gray indicator means that all nodes have been offline more than one week 
  • Tags: Tags associated with the network, providing additional information such as the network’s region or function 
User Information 

At the top-right corner of the page, users see their username along with a user icon. This setup allows for quick access to logout functionality and provides a visual indication of the logged-in user.  

Search Functionality 

The dashboard features two distinct search functionalities: 

  • Main Search (Top): The main search bar at the top of the dashboard serves as a quick navigation tool. Users can enter specific search criteria and upon pressing enter, the system immediately redirects them to the network details page. This makes it easy for users to navigate and find the information they need. 
  • Table Header Search: The search bar in the table header lets users filter and find specific networks in the list. When users type in their search, the list automatically updates to show only the networks that match their search. This makes it easier for users to find what they’re looking for quickly and efficiently. 

Network details 

When users are redirected to the Network Details page, they have access to detailed information about the network and can take particular actions.
