Importing the initial gallery

Trends contains a prebuilt gallery of boards, panels, and sources. The gallery includes:

  • Trends boards that use sensors from the Core Content and Default Content packs to provide environmental visibility.
  • Boards for any installed Tanium modules that use module sources or saved question sources. For example, if Tanium Discover is installed, you can import a Discover gallery that contains prebuilt boards, panels and sources that use data provided by Discover.

Use the gallery to explore how boards, panels, and sources work together to visualize data. You can even edit the gallery or clone boards to make your own boards.

Included Trends boards

Trends provides the following boards in the initial gallery:

Board Description
Inventory Hardware and software in the environments
IT Operations Metrics Business metrics for IT operations
Operations Monitoring Reboot status, browser versions, and product versions
Policy Monitoring Endpoint policies for Windows firewall and USB write protection
Risk and Security Metrics Business metrics for risk and security
Tanium Client Counts Counts of Tanium-managed clients, derived from System Status
Tanium Health Endpoint status and Tanium Client versions
Trends - Module Health Source collections and Trends resource usage on the Module Server

This list only contains boards provided by Trends; it does not contain boards provided by other Tanium modules.

Before you begin

  • If the Core Content pack, Default Content pack, or Tanium modules are not present when you import the gallery, the corresponding Trends boards, panels, and sources are not created. You can reimport the gallery at a later time after you import the content or solution to create these boards, panels, or sources.
  • If you import Trends with the default settings, Trends automatically imports the initial gallery. This includes boards and sources provided by other Tanium modules that are already imported and configured.
  • If you import Trends with the default settings and later import another Tanium module, Trends automatically imports the boards and sources for that module after you configure the service account for the module.

If you are using Tanium as a Service, the initial gallery is imported by default. You can use these steps to re-import the initial gallery.

Import the gallery

When you import the gallery, you can select which boards and panels to import. Trends creates those boards along with any corresponding sources, panels, and sections. You can reimport the gallery at any time.

Trends does not overwrite panels or sources that already exist in your Trends workbench. To reset any panels or sources in the galleries, delete the panels and sources that you want to reset, and then reimport the gallery. If you import a board that already exists in your Trends workbench, Trends merges any new panels into the existing board.

  1. From the Trends menu, click Boards to open the All Boards page.
  2. Go to Import > Gallery.
  3. Select the boards, sections, and panels to import.
    • If you select a panel, the parent section and board are automatically selected.
    • If you select a section, the parent board is automatically selected.
  4. Click Validate.
  5. Verify the boards, sections, and panels are correct and click Import.

Any saved questions used by imported panels are issued immediately. Within a few seconds, Trends begins to collect initial results and display data in the boards and panels. After the initial data appears, explore the boards and panels to discover what you can do with Trends. You can make modifications to titles, text descriptions, dates, and clone a board if you want to create a similar board.
