Admin users can use Manage Spaces to see an overview of the system's dashboard spaces, and to create, update, delete and re-order each space.


The page is comprised of a list of all system dashboards displayed in the following order:
My Dashboard and Axonius Dashboard the two default dashboard spaces are always the first; their order cannot be changed.
Next are all custom added spaces.
The following details are displayed for each space:

  • Name - Click the space name to open the selected space.
  • Access - The Space access definition:
    • Private - A private dashboard that only you can see
    • Public - No roles are assigned to this space.
    • Roles - Roles are assigned to this space.
  • Assigned Roles - The system displays the list of the roles assigned to the space, when roles are assigned to a space.

Setting Roles for the Axonius Dashboard Space

You can use roles to set Space access for the Axonius Dashboard so that it is not available to all users of your system.

  1. In Manage Spaces click the dots next to the space name.
  2. From the menu that opens choose ‘Edit’.
  3. In Space access choose Roles.
  4. Click in the Roles field and select the roles that can see this space. If you do not select any roles, only the Admin user can see the space.


  1. Click Save.

Now when a user logs in who is not assigned to a role that can see the Axonius Dashboard, then they will not be able to see it.


Default selection for Axonius Dashboard is public.
Axonius Dashboard can either be set as public or assigned to a role, it cannot be private.
