Create and Manage Custom Dashboards
Custom Dashboards provide a toolbox for building your own visual interface around Harness data using flexible filtering and criteria. By creating and fine-tuning visualizations that slice and dice your data, you can identify and optimize:
- Development and deployment velocity
- Rollback durations and other useful metrics
Before You Begin
A Harness user's interaction with Custom Dashboards is role-based. Options depend on their membership in a Harness User Group with specific Account Permissions.
To create and manage Custom Dashboards, your Harness User Group must have the following Account Permissions:
- Create Custom Dashboards
- Manage Custom Dashboards
Without these permissions, you can still view and operate on a dashboard that has been shared with you.
For more information, see Manage Groups and Permissions.
Step: Create a Dashboard
To create a Custom Dashboard, perform the following steps:
In Harness click Custom Dashboards and then click Create Custom Dashboard.
Enter a Dashboard Name. This should be unique within your Harness account.
Optionally, enter a Description. This can be used to communicate the dashboard's purpose to other users.
Click Submit. Your new Custom Dashboard will open in the initial state as shown below.
Step: Edit or Clone a Dashboard
