Create custom Cortex Xpanse dashboards to display information that is most relevant to your organization.

To create a custom dashboard, you can select widgets from the widget library and choose their placement on the dashboard. Once you've created and saved your custom dashboard, you can find it under My Dashboards.

  1. Select DashboardsDashboards Manager+ New Dashboard.

  2. In the Dashboard Builder, enter a unique Dashboard Name and an optional Description of the dashboard.

  3. Choose the Dashboard Type.

    You can use an existing dashboard as a template, or you can build a new dashboard from scratch.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Customize your dashboard.

    1. To get a feel for how the data will look, Cortex Xpanse provides mock data. To see how the dashboard would look with real data in your environment, you can use the toggle above the dashboard to use Real Data.

    2. Drag and drop widgets from the widget library to their desired position.

    3. For incident-related widgets, select the star icon to include only incidents that have been starred. A purple star icon on the widget indicates that the widget is displaying only starred incidents (see Incident Starring).

    4. Repeat the process to continue adding additional widgets to the dashboard. If necessary, you can also remove unwanted widgets from the dashboard. To remove a widget, select the menu in the top right corner, and Remove widget.

  6. When you have finished customizing your dashboard, click Next.

  7. To set the custom dashboard as your default dashboard when you log in to Cortex Xpanse , Define as default dashboard.

  8. To keep this dashboard visible only for you, select Private.

    Otherwise, the dashboard is public and visible to all Cortex Xpanse users with the appropriate roles to manage dashboards.
