Top 5 Controls By Resource Failures: Shows top 5 controls with most number of resource failures.

Customize Dashboards

Dashboards help you visualize your assets. You can add widgets with search queries to see exactly what you're interested in. You can also export and import Dashboard and Widget configurations, from the Tools menu, to a file in a json format allowing you to share them between accounts or within the Qualys community.

Each dashboard is a collection of widgets showing resource data of interest. You can create multiple dashboards and switch between them.

You can personalize the default dashboard - add widgets, resize them, move them around to change the layout. Use the menu to manage your dashboards.
