Working with Custom Panels
- 1 Minute To Read
While the default dashboard panels contribute the first and immediate insights based on basic and known policies, you can leverage the dashboard to add additional custom panels. Additional panels provide a more complete and comprehensive view for your organization's custom policies.
To add a new chart, do the following:
Open the the Dashboard page by clicking icon on the left navigation panel, select the required dashboard space and click the New Chart button.
The Create a Dashboard Chart dialog opens.
The dialog lets you specify the chart metric, title and then provides configuration options for the visual/chart type and parameters according to the chosen metric.
- The chart metric determines the type of measurement displayed. In a data context, these are the numbers or values that can be summed and/or averaged alongside dimensions, which are the categorical buckets that can be used to segment, filter, or group.
- Visuals, like all other elements, are derived from saved queries. Therefore, visual are separated between measurements that apply to multiple queries and those that apply to a single query:
- Multiple query metrics are designed to compare the number of results of different queries.
- Single query metrics are designed to segment or sum/average results of a single field of a query.
- The following custom charts can be created:
- Query Intersection
- Query Comparison
- Field Segmentation
- Adapter Segmentation
- Field Summary
- Query Timeline
- Matrix Data
For more details, see Custom Panel Types.
To complete the dashboard panel, click the Save button.
Once created, use the chart actions to edit, remove, copy, move or refresh. Hover over the panel reorder it or to pick a date in order to display historical data. For details, see Chart Actions.
