Setting up dashboards

In BMC Helix Dashboards, a dashboard displays information from various data sources in panels that are organized in rows. You can use different visualization types in different panels of the dashboard. On a graph dashboard, you can also zoom in on a graph to further narrow down the data display.

Each panel displays information from data sources in your environment. You can customize panels to create the best visualization for your dashboards. For example, you can use a line graph in one panel and a bar chart in another.

Panels use queries to fetch information from data sources. Each data source has its own query type. Therefore you can include only one datasource per query. You can add multiple queries in a panel.

The following video (2:36) provides an brief introduction on creating dashboards and using some features of BMC Helix Dashboards.
