Widgets are the panes on your dashboards. You add widgets to a dashboard to create a dashboard. Widgets show information about attributes, resources, applications, or the overall processes in your environment.
You can configure widgets to reflect your specific needs. The available configuration options vary depending on the widget type. You must configure some of the widgets before they display any data. Many widgets can provide or accept data from one or more widgets. You can use this feature to set the data from one widget as filter and display related information on a single dashboard.
