Editing and deleting views

As an administrator, you can modify, delete, and manage the capacity views in the TrueSight console. 

To revert an edited out-of-the-box view to its default settings, you need to reinstall the view. Also, if you accidentally delete an out-of-the-box view and then want to restore it, you must reinstall the view.

When you install a view, any prior customization done to the view is lost. For more information about how to install a view, see Installing capacity views.

For more information, see the following sections:

Before you begin
