Customize the CMDB dashboard

The CMDB dashboard displays aggregated CMDB health reports for all major metrics, and sub-metrics. The data is displayed in a tile format, each tile being a widget that you can customize to display the information in a way that is useful for you.

Role required: itil_admin

Navigate to Configuration > CMDB Dashboard and customize the CMDB dashboard as follows:
  • Click the title area of a tile and drag it to a different location to rearrange the layout of tiles on the dashboard.
  • Click the X in the upper right side of a widget to hide the widget.
  • Click the + sign in the upper left corner of the dashboard to add content. In the Add content dialog box select the content to add and the location to place it.
  • Click the gear icon in a widget tile to edit widget settings such as title and height.
  • Click Reset to Default to revert to the base system settings.
