    The dashlet library comprises dashlet templates that enable you to build custom dashboards. Some of the dashlet templates are specific to the data that they display, while others enable you to show more general content. When building your dashboards, you can select any combination of dashlet templates; however, if you select a dashlet template that shows specific data, that data must be available in TrueSight Operations Management at the time you configure the dashlet.

    This topic provides the following information about the available dashlets:

    Dashlet configuration

    When you select a dashlet template from the Add Dashlet page, the properties for the selected dashlet appear in a drawer-like section that slides out from the bottom of the dashboard. You can create a unique, descriptive title for each dashlet.

    Available dashlet templates

    The following table lists the dashlet templates that compose the dashlet library. The dashlet description includes the properties that you must configure for each dashlet. 

    The dashlet templates listed depend on the components that you have registered with the Presentation Server.

    Best practice

    Because you can use the same template to create multiple dashlets, you can also use the same title; however, BMC recommends that you use a unique title for each dashlet to avoid confusion.


    Start adding filters for your table either in the macro settings or on the filtration pane.

    Oops, it seems that you need to place a table or a macro generating a table within the Table Filter macro.

    The table is being loaded. Please wait for a bit ...
