You can select dashboards individually or as a group and perform several actions.

To manage your dashboards, in the menu, click Dashboards. From the left pane, click the Dashboards drop-down menu and then click Manage Dashboards. Use the options from the horizontal ellipsis next to the Add option.

All the dashboards are listed on this page. You can filter the dashboards based on the name of the dashboard, the dashboard folder, enabled dashboards, shared dashboards, or the dashboard owner. You can click Add to create a dashboard. For information about creating a dashboard, see Create and Configure Dashboards.

You can select a dashboard from the list, click the vertical ellipsis against each dashboard, and select the various options such as edit, delete, clone, and disable a dashboard. You can also change ownership of dashboards, save the dashboard as a template, and export the dashboard. By default, the list of dashboards is sorted by name and all the columns can be sorted.

Note: A wrench icon appears when the data in an imported dashboard depends on the existence of one or more adapters that are currently not present. The wrench icon disappears if the required data in an imported dashboard appears in vRealize Operations Manager after configuration.

Imported dashboards regardless of used data, remain stuck and include a wrench icon if the dashboard that is stuck (with the wrench icon), already exists.
