Manage dashboards in AppsWatch Base

Dashboards allow users to organize and present Services in a logical, customized view. The AppsWatch Dashboard can display status of your key metrics at a single glance.

Note: AppsWatch automatically creates an “All Services” Dashboard and automatically links all new Services to it. This “All Services” Dashboard can be seen in the “Dashboards” part in the “Metrics Tree” pane.
