Let's see how we can customize the portal dashboards.
00:05
Once again, I'll switch to my browser and show you how to do that.
00:09
As your dashboards are customizable collections of ui tiles that you can display in the portal,
00:15
you can access the dashboards by clicking on the dashboard button. In the resource area,
00:22
there is a default dashboard that has created for you
00:26
in this default dashboard. You have just a few tiles.
00:29
One is all resources.
00:32
The next is service, health, marketplace and quick starts and tutorials.
00:38
You can create a new dashboard by clicking on the new dashboard button.
00:42
On the left, there is a list of tiles that you can place on the dashboard.
00:45
Let's select a few of those
00:47
well at the clock,
00:49
and then we'll add some metrics. Chart.
00:52
Keep in mind that some of those can be query based, which means that when the data behind them changes, what's shown also changes.
01:00
You can change the name of the dashboard.
01:02
Let's say Dev, team dashboard.
01:08
Once you're done, you can say done customizing.
01:12
Now you have a second dashboard that you have created.
01:17
You can switch between the dashboards by clicking on the down arrow and selecting the proper dashboard.
01:23
Another thing is that you can also edit an existing dashboard by clicking on the edit button.
01:32
You see the same UI for editing.
01:34
You can add and remove tiles. You can also resize the tiles by either dragging the lower right corner or clicking on the three dots and selecting the defined size.
01:51
Another thing that you can do with the dashboards is upload and download dashboards.
01:56
Dashboards are saved as Jason Files, which means that you can edit them programmatically and also upload them and automate them.
02:06
Here's what the Jason looks like. I'll open this up in visual studio code.
02:17
This is the Jason. I can go and make some changes in it.
02:22
Let's say developer, team dashboard and save it.
02:38
I can go back to the portal and upload this dashboard.
02:45
Now I have a developer team dashboard, too.
02:51
Another thing that I can do with the dashboard is share the dashboard.
02:54
If I click on the share button, I can share it as a part of a resource group that is created automatically for me.
03:02
I would like to put this in West US. Two.
03:07
I'll publish the dashboard,
03:08
and once the dashboard is published, I can also restrict the control to it by clicking on the manage users button.
03:22
This restricts the control to only the people or groups that you select. Here.
03:28
Let's go back to the dashboard. If I want to share dashboards, I click the down arrow and say, Browse all dashboards
03:36
here. I can have the private dashboards only, or I can see the shared ones.
03:42
In this particular case, the developer team dashboard is shared.
03:49
Another thing that you can do with the dashboards is show them in full screen.
03:53
If you have multiple monitors, say in your office, you can put the dashboards there so people can see what's happening with your environment in Azure
04:00
and the last two things are, you can clone an existing dashboard so you have some existing tiles that you can stop working off.
04:10
Or you can delete an entire dashboard if you don't need it anymore.
04:15
Now you do need to confirm if this is a published dashboard, that you will delete it and nobody else will have access to it.
04:21
Now you know how you can use as yours dashboard functionality to keep everyone in your team informed
