Custom Dashboard Templates

Custom dashboard templates are an efficient way to display the same type of information for multiple tiers or nodes. You create a dashboard in the scope of a tier or node and then use that dashboard as a template to display the same type of data for other tiers or nodes in the same application. Associating the template with a specific tier or node sets the source of the dashboard's data.

Viewing Strategies

For AppDynamics Users

Image Removed

Any If you have set up default view permissions to custom dashboards, any user who is logged into the Controller and who has Custom Dashboard view permission can view a custom dashboard. 

Users can also be granted view, edit and delete permissions on specific dashboards.

Users who have the Can Create Custom Dashboards permission can create new dashboards.

The Dashboards Viewer preconfigured predefined role has permissions to view custom dashboards. This role can be granted to users or groups who need access to custom dashboards. See Custom Dashboard Permissions for other details.

For the Public

Sharing a controller-level custom dashboard makes the dashboard available to viewers who do not have AppDynamics accounts.

...

You control controller-level custom dashboard sharing from the Actions menu of the custom dashboard configuration.

 

Image Modified

There is no comparable sharing mechanism for external viewers without controller credentials to access tier- and node-level custom dashboards based on templates. To access these types of dashboards the user must be logged into the controller and have custom dashboard view permissions on the specific dashboard.
