2.3 Widget/Panel Elements

What

All panels (or widgets) on the FileWave dashboard are comprised of the same basic elements.  This article reviews those elements at a high level.

When/Why

If you are using pre-existing panels, you won't care too much about how they are built.  However, as soon as you want to build your own panels, the building blocks become quite important.

How

All panels have the following three elements:

In the below you'll see examples of each of these elements:

The Query

The query you choose defines the data provided to the panel.  In this case, an inventory query was selected.

The Visualization

Because we chose an inventory query as our data source, a table was our only possible visualization.  In our more advanced example though, you'll see that we can do charts and graphs here of all sorts.

General

We only specified a name in this case for this panel, but it is very useful to also set a link for the panel to tie directly into a report in the webadmin.
