Building a dashboard quickly from marketplace content
BMC community contributors create dashboards that are available in the Marketplace Content folder in BMC Helix Dashboards for public use.
- Marketplace content dashboards are created by the BMC community members. These dashboards are not tested for functionality and performance. Thus, we recommend you to create a copy of these dashboards and customize according to your business requirements.
- Marketplace content folder includes dashboards for various BMC Helix solutions. You will see all the available dashboards under this folder irrespective of the solutions configured in your environment.
- BMC has been working on automating the process of new content submission to BMC Helix Dashboards by BMC customers and communities. In the meanwhile, contact BMC support to submit your content for the Marketplace content folder.

You can copy the marketplace content dashboards and use it in your production environment. However, you can also use these dashboards as templates to quickly create dashboards for your requirements.
The ABC company uses Kubernetes to deploy its services. Jordan recently joined the company as a network operations center operator. Jordan was asked to quickly create a dashboard to obtain data about factors such as CPU and memory utilization of their Kubernetes cluster. However, Jordan was not well-versed with BMC Helix Dashboards. To create a dashboard quickly, Jordan decided to leverage the community-created dashboards. He viewed the dashboards in the Marketplace Content folder and observed that the K8s Container dashboard could retrieve the needed data. So, he created a copy of the dashboard and customized it.
