SWQL examples for new widgets
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.
Starting with Orion Platform 2020.2, you can use SWQL to define what you want to see in your widgets on modern dashboards.
The SWQL code depends on the widget type.
To use the code to define the data model for a widget
- Add the widget on a dashboard.
- In Data model, select Hand edit a SWQL query and paste the example.
- Complete the widget configuration and click Save Changes.
