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 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.
