Move a Dashlet to a Different Position

You can arrange dashlets according to your preference by dragging and dropping them into a different order on the dashboard.

  1. To move a dashlet, hover in the header of the dashlet that you want to move.
    The directional cursor 104DirectionalCursor.png appears over the dashlet. Click and hold in the header of the dashlet that you want to move.
  2. Continue to hold the left mouse button and drag the window toward the new location.
    The image below shows the New Live Resources dashlet as it is moved from the bottom position of column 1 to the top position of column 3.

  3. Release the mouse button when the dashlet is in the desired location.
    The dashlet that currently occupies that position moves down.

Maximize a Single Dashlet

This topic explains how to open a dashlet on the entire area of the main Security Analytics dashboard with the same dashlet title. For example, the Scan Jobs dashlet from the below figure may be viewed on the entire area of the Security Analytics dashboard. Dashlets that have a lot of columns or charts, for example some Reporting dashlets,are easier to view when maximized so that the entire contents is visible without scrolling.

After customizing the default Security Analytics dashboard, you can revert to the original layout of dashlets using the Restore Default Dashboard option in the Actions drop-down (Actions menu cropped). To accomplish this reversion, the dashboard of a module must be displayed.

  1. Navigate to the Security Analytics dashboard which has been customized.
  2. In dashboard toolbar, click the Actions drop-down (Actions menu cropped) and select Restore Default Dashboard.
    The original layout of the default dashboard is restored.
