The Aqua Wave dashboard is a single pane of glass that summarizes the status of your cloud accounts, container registries, and their security risks. Additionally, it also summarizes the Aqua users and the Aqua plan by Wave account.
The dashboard is composed of widgets; each widget presents a different kind of asset-related information. It is easy to configure the dashboard by adding widgets from the widget gallery and optionally changing their spatial position on the dashboard. You can delete widgets or restore the dashboard to its default configuration.
Each Aqua user can configure their own dashboard. Although each user has a single dashboard, you can create different configurations and save them to individual JSON files. You can easily reconfigure the dashboard from any of these files (or send the files to other users to share your configuration).
TABLE OF CONTENTS
The Default Configuration
When Aqua Wave is newly deployed, each user will see the default configuration of the dashboard (layout of specific widgets), as shown here:
Filter by Group
The Aqua Wave dashboard can be filtered by group(s) and the widgets changes accordingly. To do this, select All Groups drop-down and select one or more groups from the list. For example, MS Demo Group is selected in the screenshot below.
Return to the legacy dashboard link takes you to the old Aqua Wave dashboard. To return, click Try our new dashboard!
Each widget presents numeric and/or graphical data, pertaining to any of a wide variety of statistics. For example, the number of enabled and disabled cloud accounts.
Each widget has a drill-down link that allows you to view more information. For example, clicking the Cloud accounts link takes you to the Cloud Accounts page that displays complete details about your connected cloud accounts.

After a recent deployment, many or all widgets will show zero or small amounts of numeric and/or graphical data.
- To refresh the data of all widgets, click on the refresh icon in the upper right of the screen.
