The Flow-Enabled Devices dashlet lists the devices or ports that are enabled for flow.
The Flow-Enabled Devices dashlet is only applicable to Views or Subviews with a device or devices enabled for flow, and devices that have been enabled for flow. It is not applicable for any other data source (e.g. VM platforms, services).
To add a Flow-Enabled Devices dashlet to a custom dashboard:
- Navigate to the custom dashboard for which you want to create the dashlet, or create a new dashboard.
- Click Add Dashlet. In the Select Dashlet Type form, select Flow-Enabled Devices and click Next.
- The Create Dashlet form will slide in on the right. Enter a name for your dashlet in the Name field.
- You can then choose the source of the data to be displayed in the dashlet. Note, the Flow-Enabled Devices dashlet can only display data where the source is a View/Subview with a device or devices enabled for flow, or a device enabled for flow.
- If you want this dashlet to source its data from the context of its parent dashboard, select Dashboard. You can see the context of the parent dashboard in the Dashboard Context field at the top of the form.
- If you want this dashlet to source its data from another dashlet in this current dashboard, select Dashlet.
- If you want this dashlet to source its data from a specific View/Subview or device on your network, select Fixed Object. You can then click Browse to an object to search for the View/Subview or device in Explorer, or drag into the box your desired View/Subview or device in from another browser window.
- Choose whether you want to hide the title of the dashlet in the Hide Title Bar field. If selected, the dashlet's Overflow Menu will also be hidden, but in the Promote Menu Options field you can then choose if you want to display the options in the dashlet's Overflow Menu in the overall dashboard's Overflow Menu.
- Choose whether you want the dashlet to automatically refresh in the Auto Refresh field.
- Click Done in the top right of the form, otherwise click Cancel.
To configure or export the table in the dashlet:
