Dashboards is a new beta feature that introduces interactive, visual dashboards that summarize data, product capabilities, and the state of your environment. These dashboards are being released together with an easy way to navigate through the Alert Logic console.
Dashboards allows you to easily view pertinent information in visuals that feed from live data in your environment. Most visuals allow you to click items to view the source of the data in the visual. This allows you to drill down further into issues immediately on the corresponding page in the Alert Logic console, and streamline your response actions.
The new navigation menu makes it easy to navigate through the Alert Logic console from the Dashboards page. Although all of the functionality of the current Alert Logic console is available, there are some differences in the Dashboard navigation menu and the current Alert Logic console. For more detailed information, see Dashboard Navigation Menu.
Dashboards beta is currently under development, and is subject to changes. You may see additional dashboards or data that are otherwise not mentioned in this document during the beta period. These changes are dependent on your participation in Dashboards beta, and subscription of certain Alert Logic products and capabilities.
