Customizing the Analytics Dashboards

WSO2 API Manager Analytics has five different dashboards that are namely, API Analytics, Application Analytics, Business Analytics, Monitoring, and Reports.

The users are not allowed to modify the default dashboards - i.e modify the layout of the widget or add custom widgets to a particular dashboard. If you need to modify one of the default dashboards, you need to make a copy of the dashboard and do modifications to the copy of the dashboard as described in steps 1 to 5.

In order to make it possible for other users to create dashboards, you need to append _<tenant domain> to existing scopes in the deployment.yaml file which resides in <Analytics_HOME>/conf/dashboard directory.
