Bosch IoT Insights


The Dashboards menu item allows you to configure additional dashboards for your Bosch IoT Insights project in order to display collected data.

Dashboards are project-specific and consist of widgets. For further details about widgets, refer to Working with widgets.

Accessing Dashboards

Proceed as follows

  1. Navigate to Admin > Dashboards on the side navigation.
    → The Dashboards configuration page is displayed and shows a list of the existing dashboards, as well as the main configuration actions - adding a dashboard, editing a dashboard, and deleting a dashboard.



To execute the following actions, you have to be assigned to the Manager role or higher.

Adding a dashboard

To create a new dashboard, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Add Dashboard button.
    → The Update Project's Dashboards dialog is displayed, as on the screenshot below.


  1. Enter a Technical Name for the dashboard.

  2. Enter a Label.

  3. In the Required Roles drop-down list, select one or multiple roles of users who are allowed to configure this dashboard.

  4. In the Layout drop-down list, select whether the dashboard should be displayed in a column-based view, free-floating grid or compact grid.

    If you select Column-based, the size of the widgets can be set on the configuration page.

    If you select Free-floating grid, the widgets can be arranged as desired.

    If you select Compact grid, there will be no horizontal space between widgets.

    You can also convert existing dashboards to the grid-based layout. Dashboards with the grid-based layout cannot be converted back to the column-based layout.

    For more information on how to work with the grid-based layout, refer to Arranging widgets in the grid-based layout.

  5. Click the Save button.
    → The dashboard is added to the dashboard list.
