Creating a New Dashboard

CloudTest provides System Dashboards with pre-configured widget selections organized by data type. In the case of mPulse, your default dashboard will launch on login.

Any System Dashboard can be cloned, and used as a separate custom dashboard.

  • To create a custom dashboard from an existing dashboard, click the Properties button on the toolbar —and when prompted provide a name for the new dashboard—or, click the Toolbar Widget Selection Panel button on your dashboard and add a widgget. In either case, you'll be promopted to create a new dashboard when you attempt to make any change to a System Dashboard.

Whether you create a new custom dashboard from scratch or from a cloned System Dashboard, dashboard editing is the same—widgets are added via the left selection panel, and filters are applied via the (lower) Dashboard Edit Panel or (if the dashboard is already configured to use one) via a toolbar filter.

In the screenshot below, clicking the Properties icon (red box), or toggling the Widget Selection Panel (green box) on and dragging a widget into the workspace will cause a prompt to create a new custom dashboard. When prompted, give the new custom dashboard a name to create the new custom dashboard.

  • To create a custom dashboard from scratch, use the steps below.
Note: It is not necessary to create a dashboard before you play your tests. CloudTest, TouchTest, and mPulse, each provide a default dashboard that lets you get started right away.
