Dashboards

The Dashboards area includes 15 default dashboards. Each dashboard includes a collection of visualizations (also known as panels) that provide insight into a particular area of interest, such as device usage, website usage, or the security status of devices.

All dashboards are filtered to show the data collected from your Active devices over a specified time range; Inactive and Disabled devices are excluded from all device counts.

A default time range is set in each dashboard, but you can select a different time range using Kibana's time range filter. The total amount of historical data that is available depends on your data retention period.

You can work with the dashboards in a number of ways, including:

  • Changing the time range of a dashboard

  • Searching for and filtering the data

  • Adding or removing panels

  • Creating dashboards

  • Exporting dashboards to a PDF or PNG file

  • etc.

For help working with Kibana dashboards, click in the elastic header and click Documentation below Dashboards.

IMPORTANT  Absolute encourages you to customize Absolute Insights to suit your needs, but instead of modifying the default dashboards, we recommend that you create a new dashboard and copy visualizations (panels) to it. This practice helps to ensure that your customizations are preserved if a default dashboard is updated in a new release of Absolute Insights.
