The colored rectangles in certain widgets are representations of specific objects. You can point to any of these rectangles to view basic information about the object it represents. In the Configurations drop-down menu in the widget toolbar, you can select how the system arranges these objects by size and color.

The Horizon dashboards are created from standard vRealize Operations Manager widgets. If your user account has the necessary permissions, you can create or modify dashboards and widgets that use Horizon objects.

For more information about configuring dashboards and widgets, see "Configuring Data Display" in the vRealize Operations Manager Configuration Guide.
