Installing dashboard templates into your workspace

A dashboard template is a dashboard that an administrator shares with all users. Browse the catalog of available templates that your administrator added for you, and then select which dashboard templates that you want to install.

Before you begin

An administrator must install and synchronize the content extensions that contain QRadar® Pulse dashboard templates.


  1. In QRadar Pulse, go to the dashboard list, which is on the upper left of the Pulse tab, and click New Dashboard > Manage templates.
    Tip: In the dashboard list, templates with available updates have an Update available tag. Click the tag to open the Browse Templates page and update according to these steps.
  2. On the Browse Templates page, click Install for each new dashboard template that you want to install. For example, in the following screen, the QRadar DNS Analyzer app dashboard template is ready to install as a dashboard.

  3. On the Browse Templates page, click Update for each dashboard template that you want to update. If you changed the existing templates, you can choose to keep the existing templates instead.
  4. Follow the instructions in the wizard to finish the update process.
    Any conflicts with parameters or widgets are displayed for you to deal with. Then, click Confirm > Close.

    Different conflicts can occur. If the dashboard properties (name, description, or widget layout) are changed, you can select Keep both to install the updated dashboard with a number suffix (for example, Offense Details (1)). If the dashboard properties are unchanged but its widgets are changed, Keep both installs only the updated widgets with a number suffix. In this case, the dashboard still references the original widgets and must be edited to reference the new widgets.

    Select Replace to overwrite with the updated dashboard and widgets.

  5. After you resolve conflicts, click Back to Dashboard, and then go to the dashboard list to select a new or updated dashboard, like the following example:
