Widgets

Widget Overview

Widgets generate data based on IBA probes. Depending on the type of widget, it returns either a total count of a particular type of anomaly, or it displays outputs generated from stages and processors in an IBA probe. Some widgets are created automatically (but they are not deleted automatically). Widgets can be viewed by themselves or they can be added to analytics dashboards. You can create custom widgets before or during dashboard creation.

From the blueprint, navigate to Analytics > Widgets.

Creating Anomaly Heat Map Widget

Anomaly heatmap widgets count the anomalies from tagged IBA probes and stages.

  2. Select Anomaly Heat Map from the Type drop-down list and enter a name.
  3. Enter row tags, column tags, and (optional) description.
  4. Click Create to create the widget and return to the list view. Creating a large widget may take some time. You can check the status under the Active Tasks section at the bottom of the screen.

Creating Stage Widget from Widgets View

Stage widgets contain outputs from a stage of an IBA probe.

  1. From the blueprint, navigate to Analytics > Widgets and click Create Widget.
  2. Select Stage from the Type drop-down list and enter a name.
  3. Select a probe and a stage, then customize the output as needed.
  4. Click Create to create the widget and return to the list view. Creating a large widget may take some time. You can check the status under the Active Tasks section at the bottom of the screen.

Creating Stage Widget from Probes View

In addition to creating a stage widget from the widgets view, you can also create one while you are in the detail view of a probe.

  1. From the blueprint, navigate to Analytics > Probes and select a probe.
  2. Select a stage within the probe and click the Create dashboard widget button (right-side). The stage is preselected for you in the dialog that appears.
  3. Configure the parameters as needed.
  4. Click Create to create the widget and return to the detail view of the probe. The widget appears in the widgets list view (Analytics > Widgets>) and when you create or update an analytics dashboard, the new widget appears as an option.

Editing Widget

Auto-created widgets can be modified, although defaults should work in most cases. When you edit widgets that are used in a dashboard you’ll get the message ‘This widget is currently in use from dashboard(s). Editing this widget will affect those dashboard(s)’.

  1. From the list view (Analytics > Widgets) or the details view, click the Edit button for the widget to edit.
  2. Make your changes.
  3. Click Update to stage the changes and return to the list view.

Deleting Widget

A widget that is used in a dashboard cannot be deleted.

  1. From the list view (Analytics > Widgets) or the details view, click the Delete button for the widget to delete.
  2. Click Delete Widget to stage the deletion and return to the list view.
