Mulitple Repositories display on a single dashboard

Andrea Wills (112) | asked Sep 05 '12, 12:47 p.m.
Currently we have multiple repositories that we need to report status.  We would like to have a single dashboard to display the status.  We manage mulitple teams/projects around the company which requires the need for mulitple repositories.

We have the same requirement.  We have a dashboard that manages all of our clm blockers for all of our applications.  The RM and QM project areas are in different repositories.  You can view the dashboard here:

You'll need to add a Friend for each project area.
1.  Open the admin web page for your application (for example, https://serverA:9443/ccm/admin)
2.  In the left panel, under Communication, click on Friends
3.  Click Add
4.  Go through the wizard to add your repository B as a friend.  (Your Root Services URI would be something like https://serverB:9443/ccm/rootservices)

Once you've added repository B as a friend, you can add widgets from it to your dashboard.
1.  Open the dashboard
2.  Click Add Widget
3.  In the Select Catalog drop down box, select your Friend
