Getting Started with Insights Dashboards

  • Updated

This guide will walk through how to:

  1. Import prebuilt Insights Dashboards
  2. Create your own custom Insight dashboard

JupiterOne Insights app allows users to build reporting dashboards using J1QL queries.

Each dashboard can be configured as either a Team board that is shared with other account users or a Personal board for the individual user.

The layout of each board is individually saved per user, including the layout for Team boards, so that each user may configure layouts according to their own preferences without impacting others. Administrators can save a Team board layout as "default" for other users.

You can build your own custom dashboards or utilize any of the existing boards that have already been built.

Here are a few example boards and their configurations: https://github.com/JupiterOne/insights-dashboards
