Creating a Dashboard

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Flexera Analytics allows you to create dashboards that display real-time data about applications, software licenses, assets, and inventory.

To create a dashboard:

  1. In the side toolbar, click New (with the plus sign), then click Dashboard.
    This displays the Select a template page
  2. From the Dashboard pane, select a page-layout type, then select a layout template from the right pane, and click OK (or you can double-click the template).
    A blank template appears on the screen.
  3. If necessary, click the Sources icon from the side toolbar to display the Selected sources fly-out.
  4. Click the Add a source icon (plus sign) to add a source.
  5. In the dialog that appears, ensure that Team Content is selected on the left, and click Flexera Data Models.
  6. Ignore any text saying that the folder is empty, and click Open.
    The Flexera Data Models folder (containing the Flexera Relational Model and the Flexera Dimensional Model) appears in the Selected sources pane.
  7. Click the Pins icon (upper-right, in the toolbar) to display previously saved or pinned widgets.
  8. To add a pinned widget, select the widget and click Add (at the bottom of the My pins panel), or drag and drop the widget onto the template.
    Tip: You can also drag and drop data model attributes to a widget to customize the way data is displayed on the dashboard. See Customizing a Dashboard for more details.
  9. To save your new dashboard:
    1. Click the disk icon (upper left, in the toolbar) to display the Save as dialog.
    2. On the left side, choose either:
      • Team content to save your dashboard where others can access it
      • My content to save your dashboard in a private area.
    3. In the Save as field, give the dashboard a meaningful name.
    4. Click Save.
