Dashboards help you to monitor system activity in your environment. Select a dashboard from the drop-down menu, or take actions on your dashboards from the Dashboard Manager.

Dashboards offer graphical overviews of your tenant's activities, enabling you to effectively monitor incidents and overall activity in your environment. Each dashboard comprises widgets that summarize information about your endpoint in graphical or tabular format.


When you sign in to Cortex XSIAM your default dashboard is displayed. To change the displayed dashboard, in the dashboard header choose from the list of predefined and custom dashboards. You can also manage all of your dashboards from the Dashboard Manager.

On each dashboard, you can you can see the selected Time Range on the right side of the header. An indicator shows the time that the dashboard was last updated, and if the data is not up-to-date you can click Refresh to update all widget data. You can also select widget specific time frames from the menu on an XQL widget. If you select a different time frame for a widget, a clock icon is displayed.


Widget specific time frames are are only supported in Cortex XDR Pro and Cortex XSIAM.

The dashboard menu provides additional options for managing your dashboard, including the option to save the dashboard as a report template, set it as your default dashboard, and disable the background animation.
