Custom dashboards

You can set up additional dashboards for customized views of the admin UI.

Create a new dashboard

To create a new dashboard, select Dashboards > New Dashboard. Enter a dashboard name and select whether this dashboard should be the default board that is displayed when you load the admin UI.

For a customized view of the admin UI, select Widgets as the Dashboard Type, click Create Dashboard, and add the widgets that you want exposed in that view.

You can also customize the view by starting with an existing dashboard. In the upper-right corner of the UI, next to the Add Widget button, click the overflow menu > widget, and select Rename or Duplicate.

Add and move widgets

To add a widget to a dashboard, click Add Widget and select the widget type. Widgets are grouped in categories. Scroll down to the category of the widget you want to add.

To change the position of a widget on a dashboard, click and drag the move button .

To add a new Quick Start widget, select the overflow menu > widget in the upper right corner of the widget, and click Settings.

To embed an admin UI sub-widget in the Quick Start widget, specify the destination URL. If you are linking to a specific page in the admin UI, the destination URL can be the part of admin UI address. For example, to create a quick start link to the Audit Configuration tab, at {secureHostname}/admin/#settings/audit/, enter #settings/audit in the destination URL text box.

Any changes to the dashboards are persisted in your project’s conf/ui-dashboard.json file, which has the following properties:
