  2. Select the type of widget to create.

  3. Depending on the service and type of widget, you can select metrics and use operators to create an Expression that will be displayed in the widget. A preview of the widget is displayed as you build the expression.

  4. Enter the widget name and description. Optionally choose to Share the widget. Sharing the widget makes the widget available to all Ambari users for this cluster. Once a widget is shared, other Ambari Admins or Cluster Operators can modify or delete the widget. This cannot be undone.
