Creating a Dexda Dashboard

Last updated on 26 February, 2024

Dashboards are central in Dexda as a starting point from where you can quickly get a situation overview. Use Dashboards to visualize data using charts of different types. Charts get information from different data records stored in Dexda, such as insights, alerts, and events. You can add filtering to charts to customize the visualization output for specific purposes and user groups.


You will require the following roles to create and manage dashboards:
