Using the Active Administrator dashboard

The Active Administrator® dashboard displays panels that provide you an overview of various components of Active Administrator. Each panel is configurable. You can choose to disable a panel, which removes it from the display. Within each panel, you can choose to hide or show various data elements. All panels are enabled by default and all elements within each panel are selected by default. Each user can configure the dashboard to suit their needs. The settings are stored with the user profile.

Setting refresh and rotation

Each dashboard pane has a refresh rate that you can set. You can manually refresh a panel by clicking .

Some panels display a number of items that rotate in the display based on the number of items you select to display and the rotation rate. For example, if you select to display 10 Active Directory Health alerts in Dashboard Settings, the alerts display 10 at a time in the dashboard panel and rotate to the next time based on the rotation time you set.

To set the rates, click and set the rotation and refresh rates. The footer for each panel displays the rotation and refresh rates and includes a sliding scale that you can use to adjust the rates.
