Create a service widget

Use the Widget Browser and the Create Widget wizard to create new widgets that display metrics for a service.

The Widget Browser displays the widgets available to add to your Services tab, widgets already added to your dashboard, shared widgets, and widgets you have created. Widgets that are shared are identified by the Shared icon. The Widget Browser also supports creating and deleting new service widgets.

  1. On the Services tab, either click + to launch the Widget Browser, or click Metrics > Actions menu > Create Widget.
  2. If the Widget browser is open, click + Create Widget.
    1. In the Create Widget wizard, select a widget type.
    2. Select metrics and operators to create an expression that defines the metrics to be displayed in the widget.
      A preview of the widget is displayed as you build the expression.
    3. Enter a name and description for the widget.
    4. Optionally, click Share to share the widget.
      Sharing the widget makes the widget available to all Ambari users for this cluster. After a widget is shared, other Ambari Admins or Cluster Operators can modify or delete the widget.
      Share cannot be undone.
