Dashboard - NAM Server

NAM Server ► Dashboard

Use the dashboard for quick access to frequently used reports.

  • We list our favorite reports on the Featured tab.
  • You add your favorite reports to the Favorites tab.
  • If a report isn't on either of those tabs, you can always find it on the All reports tab.

The Featured tab shows top or new reporting capabilities.

  • Before you select your own favorite reports, the Featured tab is the default dashboard tab.
    After you select your own favorite reports, the Favorites tab becomes the default dashboard tab.
  • This is a fixed list. You cannot customize it.
  • If your Featured tab doesn't have all the reports listed here, you probably have limited access to report data ("Data Access Permission" is enabled). Contact your Dynatrace administrator for more information.

Use the dashboard tiles for one-click access to important and frequently used NAM Server functionality. The tiles are big for easy access on mobile devices.
