Working with dashboards

In Tanium™ Interact, a dashboard is an organized group of saved questions. You use dashboards to quickly locate and use sets of saved questions. You can manage the set of saved questions contained in the dashboard, and you can apply computer group filters.

An essential set of dashboards is created when Initial Content is imported during the Tanium™ Server installation. Additional dashboards may be created when you import additional Tanium™ content packs and Tanium™ solution modules, and you can create dashboards and manage them to make them useful to your particular organization.

To display the dashboards page, click Dashboards from the Interact home page.

You must be assigned a role with the Write Dashboard permission to create, modify, or delete dashboard configurations. The saved questions available are determined by Read Saved Question content set permissions. Users assigned the Administrator or Content Administrator reserved roles have these permissions.

Manage dashboards

Use the tools shown in the following figure to manage a dashboard configuration object.

Issue saved questions from a dashboard

Use the expander button to show the saved questions within a dashboard. When you click a dashboard, Interact loads the saved questions contained in it. The page navigation uses a hierarchy: (1) category (2) dashboard (3) saved question. You can click a saved question to display its results grid.

Create a dashboard

  1. Click New Dashboard.
  2. Specify a configuration name, set filter and visibility options, and click Add.

    The dashboard is added to the page.

  3. Specify a configuration name, set filter and visibility options, assign it to a content set, and click Add.

    The dashboard is added to the page.

  4. Click Add Saved Question to display the Add available Saved Questions to Dashboard selection box. The items are populated from saved questions for which you have read permission.
  5. Select saved questions and click Add.

A new dashboard is added to the Other Dashboards category by default. This category is visible only to users with the Administrator or Content Administrator role. Consequently, the dashboard is also visible only to the creator and users with the Administrator or Content Administrator role. If you do not have one of these roles, and you want the dashboard you have created to be visible to other users who do not have the Administrator or Content Administrator role but do have appropriate RBAC permissions, ask a user with the required privileges to move the dashboard to another category.

Reorder the saved questions in a dashboard

You can reorder the saved questions contained in a dashboard from the issued question page.

  1. Select a saved question in the left pane and move it up or down. You can shift-click to select multiple items.
  2. Reorder other saved questions as you like.
  3. Click Save.
