To use this dashboard layout, import the attached JSON file and follow the instructions to rebind similar metrics in another application.


  1. Login to your Controller UI (3.9 and higher).
  2. Navigate to the Custom Dashboards list screen.
  3. Import the JSON file.
  4. Rebind the metrics which correspond to your particular application. To do this, you edit each displayed widget in the dashboard, select your application and then confirm or select the metric for that display.
