Editing dashboards

Each visualization in your dashboard is stored in a container. You can resize and rearrange the containers in the dashboard to improve the layout.

Resizing, moving, and removing containers

To maximize a container, click the Maximize icon on the top right of the container’s frame.

Clicking the icon again returns the visualization to its normal size and position.

To perform other updates on the containers, first click Edit in the Options menu. This activates the editing buttons in the container’s toolbar.

Moving: Click and hold the container’s Move control to move the container around the dashboard. Other containers will shift as needed to make room for the moving container. Release the mouse button to confirm the container’s new location.

Resizing: Move the cursor to the bottom right corner of the container and a corner control is displayed. Click and drag the corner of the container to change the container’s size. Release the mouse button to confirm the new container size.

Editing: Click the pencil icon in the top right corner of the container to open the configuration options of the visualization.

Removing: Click the x icon in the top right corner of a container to remove that container from the dashboard. Removing a container from a dashboard does not remove the saved visualization.

Changing the color theme

By default, Siren Investigate dashboards use a light color theme. To use a dark color theme instead, click Edit → Options and select Use dark theme.

To use the dark theme by default, go to Management → Advanced Settings and set the dashboard:defaultDarkTheme parameter to true.

Hiding borders in containers

The containers in a dashboard are arranged on a light gray background.

Also, the title banners in containers are particularly visible when dark theme is in use.

To neutralize the backgrounds and title banners, click Edit → Options and select Hide borders.
