Explore and Manage

A single place where you can quickly identify and manage the relationships between your Performance Analytics elements and gauge the impact of change. For example, you can identify all the reports, indicators, and interactive filters in a dashboard group that are affected if you change a field name. On the Explore and Manage page, click Create to create dashboards, dashboard groups, widgets, reports, interactive filters, indicators and indicator sources, breakdowns and breakdown sources, and data collection jobs.

For more information, see Explore and manage dashboards.

Troubleshoot
The Troubleshoot panel enables you to utilize diagnostics delivered by the ServiceNow application to investigate tests that result in an Error warning and failed data collection jobs. Out-of-the-box diagnostics run on a schedule, but can also be executed on demand. The Scheduled Data Collection list filters out jobs that are run only once and jobs that are run only on demand.
Note: If either of the numbers on the Troubleshoot card are greater than 0, there may be something wrong with your Performance Analytics implementation.
  • Click Diagnostic Errors to view the Diagnostic Executions list, a summary of how many diagnostic tests were run, and how many issues were found. Use the State field to track which issues have been resolved. For more information on diagnostic executions, see Analytics Diagnostics.
  • Click Failed Jobs to view the Scheduled Data Collection list. A failed job is a scheduled job for which the latest complete run is in the state collected_error. For more information on data collection, see Performance Analytics data collection and cleanup.
