The Axonius Dashboard presents immediate insights based on existing saved queries. The dashboard provides a single, consolidated, and central graphical place to monitor and absorb insights regarding all assets (devices, users) based on saved queries designed to shed light on desired policy, breach of policy and any other questions regarding asset management.

The Axonius Dashboard consists of Dashboard Spaces. Each Dashboard Space is represented by a tab in the dashboard page.

The Axonius dashboard page opens by default every time you login to Axonius. You can also click image.png on the left navigation panel to open the Dashboard page.


Axonius includes two default dashboard spaces: My Dashboard and Axonius Dashboard. Axonius Dashboard is the default space displayed. An Admin. user or a user with the 'Add and edit spaces' permission, can configure the system to not display the Axonius Dashboard.

The table below summarizes the different dashboard space types:

    Manage Spaces enables different space management options as described in Manage Dashboard Spaces.
  • Space Menu - When you select a space tab, a menu icon image.png is visible:
    Click it to open the menu with the following options:
    • Delete - Deletes the current space. You can only delete custom dashboard spaces.
    • Edit - Opens the Edit space dialog where you can:
      • Rename the space. It is recommended to give a unique name to each space.
      • Refresh the space. You can refresh all of the data on all the charts on a space, refer to Refreshing the Space.
      • Edit Space access permissions. Set the space access for custom spaces to Public, Private or select only specific Roles which will have access to this space. Default access for custom spaces is Public.



Users with the Admin role always have access to all spaces (which are not private).
