Add widgets to an investigation

You can add many widgets depending on your requirement and process data. While some widgets work without any setup, others need configuration to display the information you want.

A widget can provide the following configuration options:

  • Configuration by case and event attributes

  • Configuration by a SIGNAL query

  • Configuration by selecting one or more metrics

Which options are available, depends on the widget.
