Dashboards provide a unified visualization of IT resource availability and performance across the enterprise. A dashboard is comprised of widgets, which are customizable charts for visualizing metrics. Beginning with release 9.0.0, you can choose from the classic dashboard or Dashboard 2.0. The documents in this section describe how to use both dashboards.

Partner-level dashboards are owned by the partner administrator. A partner dashboard is available to all users. Partner administrators may change the default dashboard.

Client-level dashboards are owned by the client administrator and available only to a specific client. A client user can save a partner dashboard and become the dashboard owner.

You can use curated dashboards or create new dashboards, and specify a dashboard as the default visualization for a particular client or for all clients. Classic dashboards can also be shared with other clients or users. Users with any role can create, modify, or share dashboards. Curated Dashboards are out-of-the-box dashboards configured to provide instant enterprise visibility. For Dashboard 2.0, curated dashboards provide an overview of metrics for:

  • AWS
  • Azure
  • GCP
  • Kubernetes
  • Public Cloud

The following table lists the differences betwee the classic dashboard and Dashboard 2.0:
