How to Add Widgets or Views to a Dashboard

In the widgets list panel, you see a list of all the predefined vRealize Operations Cloud widgets or views. Drag the widget or view to the dashboard workspace in the upper panel.

To locate a widget or view, you can enter the name or part of the name of a widget or view in the Filter option. For example, when you enter top, the list is filtered to display the Top Alerts, Top-N, and Topology Graph widgets. You can then select the widget you require.

Most widgets or views must be configured individually to display information. For more information about how to configure each widget, see Widgets.
