Creating a dashboard

Dashboards track and consolidate the severity metrics and trends of your web applications or site over time. You can create graphical or spreadsheet dashboards.


  1. Go to the folder where you want to create the dashboard and click the Create icon (Create).
  2. On the Create Folder Item page, select Dashboard from the list. You cannot change the item type after you have created it.
  3. Enter a Name and Description for the dashboard. These fields are the first things you see when you view the contents of a folder, so ensure that they are descriptive enough for your users.
  4. Choose a Method of Creation. Use default properties to create the dashboard with the built-in settings. Use the settings file if you have exported a similar dashboard and you want to use it as the basis for the new one. The settings file is created by exporting the properties of an item.
  5. Click Create to create the dashboard in the current folder.
