Managing the Dashboard in the Alert Logic Console | Feature Education

Overview

The Dashboard is a customizable reporting tool in the Alert Logic console. This tool provides modules for users to gain immediate and convenient access to the data that is most important to you.

The Dashboard gives you the flexibility to gain awareness into the topics that you are interested in. The Dashboard brings instant situational awareness, and some modules even allow you to drill down directly into the issue from the dashboard page, allowing you to efficiently consume information.

This article provides an overview of the modules available for the Dashboard and features of the Dashboard for adding modules, editing module settings, and so on.

Features of the Dashboard

Within the Dashboard page, you can add, remove, and edit modules as you see fit. Certain modules also allow you to drill down into the topic itself. This capability is allowed if there is orange text within the module box (ID numbers, Host IPs, certain statuses, and so on).

Use the following instructions to modify your dashboard.

To add modules to your homepage:

  • Click More Options at the top of the page, select the module category from the drop-down menu in the left pane, and then click the plus sign next to the type of module you want to add on your home page.

To edit the module name and settings:

  • Click the pencil icon in the top, right corner of the module. A window will pop-up that will allow you to edit the title of the module and customize the module settings. The settings that can be modified vary based on the module, such as changing the timeframe and which appliances are included in the module data. 

To remove modules from the Dashboard:

  • Click the x in the top, right corner of the module that you want removed from your home page.
