Importing a dashboard

Import a dashboard configuration from a JSON file to create a dashboard.

About this task

The device parameters that are included with an imported dashboard JSON file might not work as expected if you import the JSON into a different device type from the one for which it was created. For example, if a parameter in the JSON file does not exist for the new device type, that parameter is ignored when the dashboard is rendered.

You can export a sample dashboard as a JSON file and then use that file as a starting point to configure your custom dashboard. Otherwise, you can use a dashboard.json file that is provided by your IBM® representative.

You can overwrite a dashboard by importing a new JSON file.

Steps

  1. Log in to the IBM Maximo Asset Monitor dashboard.
  2. From the side menu, click Monitor.
  3. From the Device types tab, select your device type.
  4. Click Configuration icon and then select Manage device dashboard.
    Note: If you selected a sample device type, a dashboard is already configured.
  5. Upload a local JSON dashboard configuration file.
    Note: If a dashboard is already configured for the device type, the uploaded JSON file overwrites the existing dashboard.
  6. Verify that the dashboard looks as expected and then click Save.

The dashboard is now available in the IBM Maximo Asset Monitor dashboard for the device type.
