Create and Manage Custom Dashboards

Updated 4 days ago by Archana Singh

Custom Dashboards provide a toolbox for building your own visual interface around Harness data using flexible filtering and criteria. By creating and fine-tuning visualizations that slice and dice your data, you can identify and optimize:

  • Development and deployment velocity
  • Bottlenecks
  • Rollback durations and other useful metrics

Harness user's interaction with Custom Dashboards is role-based. Certain options depend on their membership in a Harness User Group with specific Account Permissions. For more information, see Manage Groups and Permissions.

Only Harness Account Administrators can create a Custom Dashboard. However, you can share the dashboard with other non-admin users. For more information, see Share a Custom Dashboard.

If you're a non-Administrator, you can work with the Custom Dashboards that are shared with you.
