Limit objects on a classic dashboard/view in the SolarWinds Platform

This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.

As a security feature, administrators can limit which devices are displayed on a classic dashboard/view.

  1. In the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, go to a view on which you want to limit the displayed devices.

  2. On the view, click the pencil icon > Page Settings.

    You can also access the View Limitation section from Manage Dashboards: Click Settings > All Settings > Manage Dashboards/Views, then select a view/classic dashboard, and click Edit.

  3. Scroll down and click Edit in the View Limitation area.

  4. Select the type of view limitation you want to apply, and click Continue.

  5. Provide or select strings or options to define the device types that you want to include or exclude from the selected view, and click Submit.

    The asterisk (*) is a valid wildcard. Pattern limitations restrict views to devices for which the corresponding fields include the provided string.

The view will now only show devices that correspond with the limitation setting.
