Dashboards and reports

Dashboards and reports transform file-transfer data into meaningful graphical displays. You can add, edit, view and delete them in the user interface.

Dashboards are containers of reports. There also can be reports that are not within dashboards.

Run dashboards and reports

  1. Select Administration > Dashboards to open the dashboards UI.
  2. Select My documents on the menu to display a list of available dashboards and reports.
  3. Select an entry to run it.

Default dashboards and reports

You can use the default dashboards and reports as-is or customize them. In the dashboards user interface, select Help > Help to open a help system with information about dashboard configuration.

The role assigned to your user governs the reports you can access and run.

  • IT Manager dashboard, which contains:

User privileges for dashboards and reports

After integrating Sentinel with the Central Governance Access and Security, make sure that the default IT Manager and Middleware Manager roles contain privileges that enable users with these roles to manage dashboards and reports, as outlined in Default dashboards and reports. To update the Central Governance predefined roles with Sentinel privileges, refer to the Central Governance 1.1.3 Installation Guide for information about configuring Sentinel.

Caution about audit and flow reports

Just as with other default reports, you can change or delete the audit and view all flows reports. However, deleting these reports disables the ability to run them using the toolbar options Flows > Flows Report and Administration> Audit. Best practice is to keep these reports and not delete them.
