If you modify the default dashboard, all your agents with the Tag server will have their dashboard modified.

Create Dashboard Template​

To create a dashboard template, you can choose a template layout to create widgets by default or use a blank layout. Each template layout is used to auto generate dashboard for each agent type.

If you create a dashboard template without a tag it will appear in the list of dashboards for each agent details. But if you choose a tag, the dashboard will be displayed only on agents who have this tag.

In widget, PromQL queries should use $INSTANCE_UUID instead of a specific instance. Example:


$INSTANCE_UUID is replaced automatically by the agent UUID.


You can add tags to a dashboard template, if an agent has one of these tags, the dashboard will be displayed on the agent view.

If my agent has the tags Linux and Docker, and I add the tag Linux on Dashboard template, this dashboard will be displayed in the agent view.

Edit Dashboard Template​
