How to create a blank dashboard for users other than Administrator

Resolution

In some cases when Enforce users login, it takes a long time for the console to come up.

If we create a blank Dashboard, using Administrator, then it will not be shared/ applicable with other users.

A user from a particular Role will have to create a Blank Dashboard and then share that Dashboard.

Note :- This shared Dashboard will be available for all the users who are in that particular Role.

If you are logged on as a user other than the Administrator, Symantec Data Loss Prevention lets you choose whether to share your dashboard or keep it private.

Creating Blank Dashboards

  1. Login to Enforce as a normal user (user1) from a particular role (e.g. Reports)
  2. In the Enforce Server administration console, on the Incidents menu, click Incident Reports.
  3. On the Incident Reports screen that appears, click Create Dashboard. (The Configure Dashboard screen appears.)
  4. Choose whether to Share your dashboard or keep it Private à click Next
    • If you choose to share a dashboard, the dashboard is accessible to all users assigned the role under which you create it.
    • If you are logged on as Administrator, you do not see this choice.
  5. Type a Name for the dashboard, type an optional Description for the dashboard.
  6. Do not select anything in the Left Column and Right Column à click Save

 

Applying Blank Dashboards

Once the Dashboard is created and shared, then all users assigned to the role will see that dashboard and can set it.

Note:- All users will have to set their dashboard to blank manually.

  1. Login to Enforce as a normal user (user2) assigned a particular role (e.g. Reports)
  2. In the Enforce Server administration console, on the Incidents menu, click All Reports.
  3. On the Incident Reports screen that appears, click Edit Preferences.
  4. Click on the dropdown next to Home page for user
  5.  Select the Saved report from the dropdown list and click on Save

 Applying Blank Dashboard for all users

Assign all the users to that particular role (e.g. Reports)
