Performance Analytics widgets

Widget configurations are used to view, set up, edit, and manage properties for dashboards and visualization types—time series, score, list, and breakdown—determining how data is presented on dashboards.

For example, data can be presented as a chart, latest score, gauge, scorecard, or column. Many variations are possible. A widget determines how data is presented on dashboards. For example, as a chart, latest score, speedometer, dial, scorecard, or column. Widgets are always linked to an indicator.

Users with the pa_admin and pa_power_user roles can create and manage widget configurations.

Widgets are global, so:
  • Anyone can see a widget you created
  • Anyone can use the widget when creating their dashboard
  • Anyone can edit your widget
  • Always create a new widget when you need an alternate view.
  • Do not change an existing widget when you did not create it.
