Data Definitions

Use data definition to retrieve data from a data source. You can configure the data definitions according to your dashboard requirements to monitor various data sources. After you add a chart to a widget or a dashboard, you must associate a data definition with the chart. Use Dashboard Designer to create custom data definitions, where you specify the connector source and either select query parameters or directly enter a query to fetch data from the selected connector source. Dashboard Designer displays two types of data definitions, default data definitions and custom data definitions.

Before you create custom data definitions, ensure that the required data sources are configured by the administrator.

For more information about configuring data sources for various connectors, see Configuring Connectors and Sources.
