This page provides an overview of permissions for custom dashboards in AppDynamics.
The predefined role is the Dashboards Viewer. The permissions of this role are limited to viewing custom dashboards in the Controller UI. The permissions of this role apply if you do not set more specific permissions for an individual custom dashboard.
Each custom dashboard inherits the default custom dashboard permissions unless you override the defaults by configuring separate explicit permissions for individual dashboards.
For example, you could have a custom dashboard called SalesDashboard and a custom role SalesRole, and a second custom dashboard called FinanceDashboard and a second custom role FinanceRole. The SalesRole could be configured to have permissions in the SalesDashboard but not in the FinanceDashboard and so on.
Creating custom dashboard templates requires the Configure 'My Dashboards' for Tiers and Nodes permission, which you can set at the application level. See Application Permissions.
Changes made to the default or custom permissions are automatically applied to existing and future dashboards. These permissions can be used to create special permissions for specific dashboards and override default permissions.
To configure default permissions for a dashboard:
- On the Administration UI under Roles tab, add or edit a custom role for which you want to grant default permissions.
- Now click Dashboards tab and select Can Create Dashboards checkbox to grant role permission to create new dashboards.
- Under Default Permissions, select the default permissions for this role: View, Edit or Delete.
- Click Save at the top of the pane to save the configuration for this role.
If any of the dashboard permissions in the custom permissions list matches with the default permissions, that entry will be removed from the custom list.
