HTML Widget

Last updated on 26 April, 2024

The HTML widget allows you to embed secure HTML pages and videos on your LogicMonitor dashboard. You can use the HTML widget to view the current status of a website you’re monitoring. For example, you can display the AWS up time websites, a bug tracking website, or the current time in different regions on your dashboard, making the information visible directly in your LogicMonitor portal.

Configuring an HTML widget involves adding either a URL or embedded iFrame content to the HTML widget settings, and then selecting a color scheme for the widget display.

Requirements for Configuring an HTML Widget

  • You cannot insert HTML text directly into this widget. For information on how to insert HTML text directly into a widget, see Text Widget.
  • Only websites accessible from your network can be added to an HTML widget. Blocked sites will not populate in the widget.
  • The website URL must be secure (HTTPS).
  • HTML widgets cannot display sites with an X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN header. This header prevents other sites from displaying it as an iframe.
