Flex layout 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. By default, dashboards use the flex layout. To toggle to the legacy layout, click EditOptions and select Use legacy layout. See Legacy dashboards .

The legacy layout has been deprecated and will be removed in future versions of Siren Investigate.

Maximizing, stacking, moving, and resizing

Maximizing: To maximize a container, from the upper-right corner of the container frame, click the Maximize icon. To return the container to its normal size and position, click the icon again.

Stacking: You can move visualizations from one container to another. To stack visualizations, click the tab of a visualization and drag it to another container. Visualizations stacked in a container appear as tabs similar to a web browser.

Moving: To move a container, click the container and drag it to another location.

Resizing: To resize a container, click the bottom or rightmost border and drag to the preferred size.

Editing, removing, and persisting

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

Editing: In the upper-right corner of the container, click the pencil icon to open the configuration options of the visualization.

Removing: To remove an item from the dashboard, in the upper-right corner of the container or visualization tab, click X. Removing an item from a dashboard does not remove the saved visualization.

Persisting: Changes made to the dashboard are not automatically saved. You must click the save button. The save button appears when in edit mode only.

Changing the color theme

By default, flex dashboards use a light color theme. To use a dark color theme instead, click EditOptions and select Use dark theme.

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