Edit a view in NPM
You can modify views to suit your needs - add, remove or move widgets, limit displayed objects, or create subviews to help you manage the information on the view.
Most view customizations are a matter of clicking the Customize Page icon and drag-and-dropping widgets to views.
However, some customizations, such as limiting the view, creating NOC views, or removing subviews, require that you click the Customize Page (pencil) icon > Page Settings.
- On the view, click the Customize Page icon in the top left.
- In the menu on the top, click Add Widgets.
- Search for the widget to add.
- Drag the widget from Available widgets to its position.
To place the widget into a new column, drag it to the position.
- Click Done Adding Widgets.
The selected widgets, or resources, display on the view.
- On the view, click the Customize Page (pencil) icon.
- Click Add tab.
- Enter the tab name, and click Update.
- Select an icon, add widgets, and click Done.
To drag and drop widgets, click Preview, and then add the widgets.
You can access the subview with the resources from the view menu.
You can limit the monitored elements that are included in a view, which limits the contents of all the widgets on the view. You can also limit some widgets by using a SWQL query on the widget.
The example below shows how to limit a view to display only monitored elements owned by the NY IT Department.
- On the view, click the pencil icon > Page Settings.
- Click Edit in the View Limitation area.
- Select a type of limitation, and click Continue.
- Configure the limitation as instructed.
- Click Submit.
The view now only displays objects defined by the limitation.
Now you have created the New York IT Department view. To make it accessible for users, you must first add it to a menu bar, and assign the menu bar to the users. You cannot see the view without making it accessible first. See Add the custom Summary view to My Dashboards in NPM.
