Dashboards

Dashboards are already present when you install GLPI:

  • Central: displays overall information (represents number of PCs, telephones, monitors, etc., number of users and groups, number of tickets, problems, changes, etc.)
  • Assets: shows the elements of the portfolio with computer-type graphics by status, by manufacturer. Computers by type, network hardware by manufacturer, and more.
  • Assistance: lists tickets and their status. Graphs are available such as tickets by status and month, top ticket categories, number of incoming tickets, assigned tickets, etc.
  • GLPI inventory reports: shows the number of agents, tasks, elements in the fleet, etc.

All these tables are of course modifiable.

Creating a new dashboard

Added new dashboard

In this example, we will add a global view of the number of tickets and their status as well as an assignment filter by user or group.

  • From the main GLPI view (by clicking on the logo at the top left), click on

Alt text

  • Enter a name for your dashboard then click on add
  • Position your mouse where you want to position your tile and click on
  • In the window for selecting the type of data to display, choose the one that suits you (here ticket summary)
  • Depending on the data selected, you may be asked to choose the type of chart that will be displayed

Alt text
Select the background of your tile
Select chart type
Select the gradient from the palette (shade of gray displayed per tile)
Select the number of data to display (the number of data reflects the number of statuses your tile will display)

  • Click on edit
  • You can enlarge your tile by selecting and stretching it

You can then add as many tiles as you want.

Add filter

The filter will display the result of the tile for a given element. In our example, for a particular group.

  • Click on add filter

Alt text

  • Select technician group
  • Click on add
  • When you are satisfied with your dashboard, click on to exit edit mode

If you want to display all the tickets in a group, you can now do so by selecting the desired group from the technician group filter

Alt text

You can also access the items by clicking on the desired status. For example, if I want to display all tickets in pending status for group 1, I choose group 1 in the filter and then click on the pending line to display the result in the support tab.
