Overview Page

The WebUI Overview provides a summary of your environment. Its interactive charts and rich set of links make it easy to move quickly to areas that require immediate attention.

Refresh the screen to see the latest data. In WebUI, the Overview page is the default landing page. Display it from any WebUI screen by clicking on the BigFix logo on the WebUI navigation bar.

Operator permissions and site and role assignments govern which page and data elements display on WebUI pages. For example, an operator who does not have access to the Software Distribution component will not see the Add Software button on the Overview. Only Master Operators can edit the active dashboard to customize. For more information, see Permissions and Their Effects.

The Executive Dashboard provides information of particular interest to IT Officers, Security Officers, and Analysts. To display it click the Overview button beneath the navigation bar and select Executive Dashboard. Use the Overview button to move between dashboards. For more information about the Executive Dashboard and its tiles, see the WebUI Administration Guide.

After installing the cloud plugins and discovering the cloud resources, you can see the summary of your cloud devices in WebUI Overview under Cloud Dashboard. To display the dashboard, click the Overview button beneath the navigation bar and select Cloud Dashboard. This dashboard contains tiles for monitoring the amount of cloud resources in your environment, with or without an agent installed, and their distribution by type and region. Click any bar chart to open the Devices page, which lists that subset of resources, where the filters BigFix Agent Status and Managed by are pre-selected.

WebUI sessions close automatically after a period of inactivity. If your session expires, you will be returned to the page that you were on the next time you log in.

Note: When a tile on a dashboard takes over 10 seconds to load, load time details appear on the tile. Click Close to clear the message. Factors that can influence response times include changes to hardware, to the number of endpoints, and the amount of data you have access to.
