Managing widgets on the Dashboard

After a widget is created, you can customize the layout and control the frequency of the data update from the Dashboard page.


You can resize and reorganize the widgets on the Dashboard page based on your preferences. You can drag and drop the widgets to position them to different places on the Dashboard. To resize a widget, you need to click and drag to the preferred size the right bottom corner of the widget.
You can also maximize the widget window size to fill out the empty spaces of the Dashboard when only one widget is required for data visualization using the > Maximize option.
When the original size is required, the size can be reverted back by clicking > Revert.

Not only the widgets, but you can also set the Dashboard page to a full screen mode using button to present the widgets without the Project Manager and Search bar on the screen.

Data update

You can control the frequency of the data update for a widget by either refreshing it manually between the update cycles, or you can temporarily pause the automatic data update to have a snapshot of the streaming data in that point.

When sampling is in progress, you can use the button to pause the auto update. When the auto update is paused, icon appears next to the name of the widget to indicate that the sampling is stopped. You can resume the update of data by clicking on button.When polling the samples are finished as the configured amount of messages are processed by the widget, icon appears next to the name of the widget. You can restart the polling by clicking Restart Polling.

When a Materialized View endpoint is used as a data source, you can manually update the data on the visualization by clicking button individually on the widget. You can also update every Materialized View widget using the refresh button on the Dashboard.

If the Update Interval of the widget is set to Default, the interval can be specified using the time drop-down and selecting an interval.

Storing configuration

Widgets and Dashboard settings are stored in the local storage of the browser, which enables you to always access the created widgets within a project.
