Sessions

Girder is split up into a back-end and a front-end. The back-end runs the automation and interacts with the hardware. The front-end takes care of the interaction with the user and or applications running on the user's desktop. Some actions like for example mouse move actions run on the users desktop. Since multiple front-ends can be connected to one back-end its necessary to tell Girder which desktop to target. This is called the session. Typically these are in the form of HOSTNAME|USERNAME and all attached front-end sessions should show up in the session box. If you'd like to have an action run on all hosts with user "RON" set the session to *|RON. If you wan to target all users on hostname BLACKBOX use session BLACKBOX|*
