This release of SolarWinds Orion Platform 2017.3 radically improves your dashboard and view customization workflow and reduces the time necessary to accomplish basic customizations, such as adding widgets, to your pages.

Widgets were called resources in previous releases of the software. Widgets and resources are used interchangeably, but refer to the same thing.

Start all page customizations by clicking the pencil icon on the left. You can resize columns, easily move widgets on a page, and preview what each widget looks like.

Drag and drop widgets to a page

Add widgets, or resources in as little as two mouse clicks. Click the pencil icon to edit the page, and then click Add Widgets.


You can immediately drag and drop widgets from the list, or search and filter widgets to find the widget you want to put on your page.

Drag and drop each widget to the spot on the page you want it. Drag and drop a widget to the far-right of the screen to add a new column.EditView_AddWidgets.png

Click Done Adding Widgets, and then Done Editing.

Favorite widgets

Mark frequently used widgets as favorites so you can find them faster the next time you need to customize a page.

Resize columns

Quickly and visually resize columns after clicking on the pencil icon. When complete, click Done Editing.
