Adding reports to a dashboard

CMP Dashboards help you visually track and analyze key cloud data points and metrics. Adding Cloud Analytics reports to customizable dashboards gives you an at-a-glance view of your most important cloud infrastructure data points.

Add a report

To add a report to one or more dashboards:

  1. Select the Add to dashboard icon from the right-hand menu on the report page.

  2. Select the target dashboard(s) for the report.

    • If you own the report or have its Editor permission, you can use the Show in widget library toggle button to show or hide the report in the Widget Library.

      note

      Reports visible in the widget library can be added to dashboards using the Add widget button on the dashboard navigation bar.

    • You can also select the New dashboard button to create a new dashboard for the report.

  3. Navigate to the dashboard to view the report you just added.

From there, you can freely customize the size and arrangement of the widgets as you see fit.

Refresh report data

By default, report widgets on the dashboards are updated every 12 hours.

To check when a report widget was last updated, select the three dots menu () in the upper-right corner of the widget.

You can use the Refresh option to fetch the latest billing data.

note

The information shown in the Refresh section is when CMP retrieves the billing data from the cloud service providers.

The freshness of the data itself is decided by the relevant cloud service provider. For example, GCP data depends on Google Cloud's frequency of data loads.

Open full report

To open the report that generates the visualization of the widget, select the three dots menu () in the upper-right corner of the widget, and then select Open full report.

You can also select the report's name directly to open it.
