Allow NESTED Dashboards

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to create dashboards where I have the option to create sub-dashboards that I can navigate to. In some of our dashboards, the number of charts or widgets can be high and would cause clutter and confusion. Sub Dashboards would allow us to better organize charts. Of course, provide the ability to navigate back to the parent dashboard(s) too. Also consider allowing alert/color indicator in child dashboards to propogate up to the parent dashboard. If I use a dashboard to depict the health of a business application, I can then see which child dashboard(s) contibuted to the alert and then drill down to see the offending resource(s) that this business application depends on.

I'm currently trying to make a customer facing dashboard that inventories their VM status in a NOC view, then when one is clicked on, rather than going to the resource page (they don't need that much detail) takes them to a dashboard for that resource with specific info on it (CPU, MEM, DISK, etc.).

This would be a very helpful feature to add.  Perhaps with the ability to define data that gets passed from one dashboard to another to be access with a ##variable## in the sub-dashboard.  This would allow the click to pass the ##system.displayname## for instance to allow it to show the data from whatever you're looking for (resource or resource group, specific DataPoint, etc.).

I too would like to be able to configure the NOC widget so that clicking on the a NOC widget item takes us to another dashboard rather than the resource.
