Clickthrough Buttons on the Widget

When using the custom dashboard widgets, there may be an issue. This could be caused by the stream not fetching data or by a malfunctioning playbook that has to be addressed. As a result, the streams and playbook have a clickthrough button on the widget that allows you to navigate and look through the issues and fix them.

Clicking on these widget icons will take you to the playbook and stream for which the dashboard widget was designed.

  • If you create a widget based on the playbook, you will only be able to see the icon for the playbook. To navigate to the datasource from which the playbook is being created, click on the Playbook icon in the widget.
  • If you create a widget that is based on a DataSource stream, you can view both the icons, the playbook, and the steam.
    • To access the Streams listing page, click on the Streams icon.
    • To navigate to the stream associated with Playbook, click on the Playbook icon.

Create a Dashboard Widget from a Playbook Step

In the playbook editor V2, you can create a dashboard widget directly from a playbook step. The widget you create displays data based on the step's results.

To create a dashboard widget from a playbook step:

  1. Create a new playbook or edit an existing one.
  2. In the playbook editor, hover over the step, click on the ... three dots icon, and select Create dashboard widget.
    • The Add Widget dialog box opens. In this dialog box, the data source is pre-selected as the playbook step.
  3. Configure the widget type and content as described in Add a Widget.
  4. Click Choose Dashboard and select one or more dashboards to which you want to add the widget to.
  5. Click Add to add the new widget to the specified dashboards.
    • A successful message appears once the widget has been added.
    • The newly created dashboard will be listed on the Dashboard page and My Library > Dashboards list page.
