The main dashboard is the third item on the main menu bar. It gives you a detailed overview of the current state and history of all your applications.

When opened, data is shown for all applications in the default asset group. To filter by business unit and/or asset group, select options from the two drop-down filters at the top of the page.

Current state

The current state of all your applications is summarised graphically in four pie charts.

The risk rating is calculated based on the business impact of the application, and the severity of issues found in scans. For more details, see Risk rating.

The central counter shows the total number of applications in the portfolio for this user.

Testing status Shows the proportions and numbers of applications with status: Not started, In progress, Completed.

The central counter shows the percentage of scans currently In progress.

Issues Shows the proportions and number of "active" issues, meaning issues that are both:
  • Status = New, Open, In Progress, Reopened

Issues that have Severity = Informational, or that have Status = Closed or Noise, are ignored.
