Risk Meter Dashboard Overview

Using the VM Dashboard page allows you to group your Risk Meters into views specific to your audience or needs. This topic will help you navigate the Dashboard page and outlines the many tasks that you can perform on the page.

When you first open the Dashboard page, your Default Dashboard View and all of the Risk Meters contained in that view display. By default, the Default Dashboard View is called “My Risk Meters” and contains all of the Risk Meters that you have access to. 

Filter and Sort Options

Looking for a specific subset of Risk Meter names? Want to see every risk meter that has a red score? Want to sort the Risk Meters in a custom order? You can use the various search and sort options to help organize your Risk Meters in a way that makes sense for your organization.

Card View vs List View

List View

List view allows you to view a list of your Risk Meters in that view instead of the score dial. You will see the number of assets and vulnerabilities for each group along with the score. Hovering over the name of the Risk Meter will display the Reporting, Top Fixes, Edit and Delete actions as well.

Create Dashboard Views

You can create additional Dashboard views that contain subsets of your Risk Groups. Client administrators can create Global and Shared dashboard views. They can be made available to everyone (Global) or limited to specific user roles (Shared). Note that anyone granted access can see these Global/Shared dashboard views but only client administrators can create/edit them.

1, On the VM Dashboard page, click Add Dashboard View.

2. Enter a Name for the view, and select the risk groups to add to the view. If you are Client administrator, decide who can see the Dashboard view.

3. Click Save Dashboard View.

Note: The risk meters visible to a specific user on a shared dashboard are determined by the role-based access controls (RBAC) in place. If a shared dashboard has 10 risk meters on it but the specific user only has permission to see eight of them, then they will only see those eight.

Set Your Default Dashboard

Every Cisco Vulnerability Management user can choose their own default dashboard. It can be one they create themselves or it can be a global/shared dashboard that an administrator created. This default dashboard displays each time they log in to Cisco Vulnerability Management and open the VM Dashboard page.

To select your default dashboard , click on the star next to its name.

Global and Shared Dashboard Views

Client administrators can create Global and Shared dashboard views. you can make them available to everyone (Global) or limited to specific user roles (Shared). Note that these Global/Shared dashboard views can be viewed by everyone granted access but they can only be created and edited by client administrators.

Global and Shared dashboard views are created using the same steps as other dashboard views. You’ll see the options available in the Create New Dashboard View screen:

Note: The risk meters visible to a specific user on a shared dashboard are determined by the role-based access controls (RBAC) in place. If a shared dashboard has 10 risk meters on it but the specific user only has permission to see eight of them, then they will only see those eight.
