Various widgets can be added to a dashboard from one or more applications.
Before you begin
About this task
The dashboard's widget catalog displays all of the widgets that you can add to a dashboard. The widget catalog initially displays widgets that are stored in a local repository. If other applications are configured to communicate with the dashboard's host, those applications are displayed in the widget catalog list. Widgets from local repositories and other applications can be added to the same dashboard.
- Select the Add Widget icon () in the upper-right corner of the dashboard. A Widget catalog opens displaying the available widgets that are grouped in categories. If the current server has any friendly servers that are configured, such as an application server, the widget catalog displays the servers.
- To add widgets from a connected application or friendly
server, select the server in the menu. If you are authenticated to
the server, the widget menu is updated with the list of widgets that
are available in that repository. If you are not authenticated, you
are prompted to authenticate. Note: The associated friendly server must be based on Jazz Foundation Server version 220.127.116.11 or greater. If the other server is based on an older version, the dashboard displays a message that the server is not compatible and that you must upgrade.
- Browse all available widgets, or select a category to limit
the number of widgets that are displayed in the catalog. Click the
name of a widget to see more information about it. When a widget is selected, a description and a preview image are shown.
- After you find the widget to add, click Add
Widget. The widget is added at the top of the leftmost content column.
