You can add, modify, and delete dashboards in your Custom Dashboards space.

Content Pack dashboards, pre-built dashboards that you download, cannot be modified, but you can clone these dashboards to your Custom Dashboards space and modify the clones.

Important:

vRealize Log Insight does not perform checks for duplicate names of the dashboards, queries, and alerts that you save or clone. The display name is not a unique identifier when vRealize Log Insight saves queries. Therefore, you can save multiple charts, alerts, and dashboards with the same name. To make data more easily retrievable, do not duplicate names when you save charts, alerts, or dashboards.
