This section describes the functionality of the ThousandEyes dashboards.
ThousandEyes dashboards are a way to see customized live views of your test data, or Internet Insights collective intelligence. For example, if you’ve subscribed to Internet Insights packages, you can set up a dashboard that shows application outages related to your main SaaS provider, alongside Internet outages that affect your users’ ability to access those domains.
ThousandEyes offers a series of pre-configured dashboards, which you can use as-is, or duplicate the built-in dashboards and then modify the copies.
Creating a new dashboard involves:
- Providing a name
- Adding widgets
- Configuring each widget, starting with a data source (cloud and enterprise agents, endpoint agent browser sessions, or endpoint scheduled tests).
From there, you can choose various metrics and drill-down filtering to surface the data that you care about.
You can duplicate, create, and share dashboards with other ThousandEyes users within your organization, as described in Dashboard Sharing and Snapshots. You can also embed selected dashboard widgets into external web sites for use by viewers outside of your ThousandEyes organization, as described in Embedding Dashboard Widgets in External Web Sites
In September of 2022, ThousandEyes rolled out a major feature change to Dashboards: a merging of Reports into Dashboards. All your existing reports, and report features such as snapshots, are now available as Dashboards, under a group called Migrated Reports.
As described in the Changelog, both Reports and Dashboards remain available in parallel during a 30-day transition period. However all your reports are also available immediately under Dashboards, with a visual “migrated” indicator, as shown below.
The following resources provide further information:
- [Dashboard Sharing and Snapshots] (https://docs.thousandeyes.com/product-documentation/dashboards/dashboard-sharing-and-snapshots) describes how to share data from ThousandEyes dashboards, including via regularly scheduled snapshots.
- The Embedding Dashboard Widgets in External Websites article will guide you through the process of creating chunks of HTML code that display individual report widgets and can be instantly added to your existing NOC dashboards.
