Creating a new dashboard
You can maintain multiple dashboards in your Cloud Management Platform to visualize metrics, manage licenses, and access essential data for your organization.
Start from an existing dashboard:
Select the New Dashboard button from the right-hand side of the dashboard navigation bar:
Choose a name that suits your use-case (e.g., "Finance", "Google Cloud", "AWS", and so on).
Every dashboard can be Private or Public:
- Private — only you can view the dashboard
- Public — any user in your organization can access this dashboard
If you select Public, you will be given the option to allow other people in your organization to edit the dashboard.
The Density determines the layout of the dashboard (with more dense dashboards having smaller widgets but more display space, and vice-versa).
Select Create to create your new dashboard.
The CMP will create your new dashboard and take you to the new dashboard page.
Once a dashboard has been created, you can add widgets by selecting the Add Widget button from the right-hand side of the dashboard navigation bar.
Selecting Add Widget will slide open the widgets panel:
Select the plus icon next to the widget you want to add to your dashboard.
This example shows a dashboard named "Finance" with three finance-related widgets:
To edit widgets, select Customize from the right-hand side of the dashboard navigation bar.
After selecting Customize, two icons will appear in the top right-hand corner of each widget. The first icon (two columns of three dots) allows you to drag widgets around and rearrange the dashboard. The second icon (a trash can) allows you to remove the widget from the dashboard.
When you are finished editing the dashboard, select Done from the right-hand side of the dashboard navigation bar to save your changes.
