Dashboards provide quick, distilled views of data related to your cloud cost, inventory, utilization, and saved filters. You can choose from more than 30 built-in dashboard panes that you can add to your dashboard view and customize.
This guide will show you how to create dashboards and add and configure panes within a dashboard.
- Launch CloudCheckr. The Partners page opens.
- Select a partner from the list.
- From the menu bar, click the Dashboards icon and select Create Dashboard.
- Click Create Dashboard.
The Dashboards page displays.
The Dashboards page may have different options depending on your user role and if you already own or are assigned to dashboards. If you do not have any dashboards, the dialog box will look like this screen:
The Create New Dashboard dialog box may have different options depending on your user role.
- If you have logged into CloudCheckr with an admin user role, you can name the dashboard and assign users.
- If you have logged into CloudCheckr with a basic user role, you can only name the dashboard.
This sample screen shows what the dialog box may look like if you are an admin user:
The Add New Pane dialog box opens.
For example, the chief financial officer of ABC International, a global financial company, may want to have access to the cost data for the company’s cloud deployment. You can configure the dashboard to show the built-in panes that show cost-related data.
Your completed dashboard will display the name of the dashboard in the upper left corner. All the panes that you added are visible in the dashboard.
To see a list of the dashboards you own or are assigned to you, click the dashboard name or click the Dashboards icon:
Use the Dashboard Actions to create a new dashboard, add a pane to the existing dashboard, configure, or delete a dashboard.
If you select Configure Dashboard, you can modify the name of the dashboard if you are an admin or basic user.
To rearrange the panes, click and drag a pane to a new position on the dashboard.
