Adding a widget

You can add different types of widgets to a dashboard to display various information at a glance.

About this task

The Jazz™ Team Server supplies a number of general widgets that you can add to a dashboard. Jazz Team Server applications can contribute an extra set of widgets that are specific to that application's function. All available widgets are displayed together in the widget catalog.

Procedure

  1. Click the Add Widget icon (Add widget) in the upper-right corner of the dashboard. A Widget catalog opens and displays the available widgets that are grouped in categories:

    Widget catalog

  2. In the Select Catalog field, choose the application from where to add widgets.
  3. In the Select Category section on the left, choose a category to limit the number of widgets displayed.
    Note: You can also search for specific widgets or widget types by using the search field.
  4. Click the widget to see a description and a preview image.
  5. To add the widget to the dashboard, click the Add icon (Add). The widget is added at the top of the leftmost content column.

What to do next

After you add a widget, you can modify its content, scope (if applicable), appearance, and location on the dashboard. Save all changes before you close the dashboard.

To remove a widget from the dashboard page, click the Close icon (Close) in the upper-right corner of the widget.
