A group is the container for dashlets, so any dashboard must have at least one group. On the Analyzer component, you can group the dashlets within the dashboard for a consistent and user-friendly appearance. For example, you can distinguish performance-related dashlets from incident-related ones by adding a group for each type.

Adding a group to a dashboard involves:

  • Giving the group a meaningful name
  • Selecting a layout for the group

To add a group

  1. On the Action menu of the Dashboards page, click Add new group.
  2. In the Group title box, enter a name for the group.
  3. Select a preconfigured group layout by clicking its option button.
    A lock icon in a column of the layout indicates that the width of that column is fixed. The width of other columns adjusts dynamically to fill the group layout.
  4. Click OK.

The new group appears on the dashboard. You can add dashlets to the group or drag dashlets between groups.
