Today I will be reviewing the Azure Portal Dashboard.
We have seen lots of improvements in that field.
It has developed to include a variety of options, and lot of use cases:
- Monitoring, with full screen and charts.
- Shortcuts to the most usable apps.
- Share dashboards between users.
- You can have multi Dashboards, like Dashboard for DB's, for Storage or VM's or per application or resource group.
I find these new features very useful and very easy to implement.
Here are some screenshots showing the uses.
Image 1 - shows what options we have for the Dashboards
We can add new, edit an exiting one, share to other users, clone and delete.
Image 2 - shows the options when clicking on the arrow near the Dashboard, we see the list of my dashboards, and the dashboards that was shared with me.
Image 3 - shows the screen after clicking on "Share", we can share to a subscription, and put it in a location as resource group.
Image 4 - shows a custom Dashboard I created for a 10 sharded DB system - to have the DTU and Storage in the same place - also adding the management DB.
So enjoy your journey with in the new Dashboards world.
