How to create a personalised dashboard (mashup)


This document gives step-by-step instructions on how to create a personalised view (mashup) of Dashboard plots using the popular mashup tool Netvibes.

When you have finished working through the instructions you will have a mashup of Dashboard plots similar to

Create a Netvibes account

If you do not already have an account then create a BASIC free account which is sufficient.

  • EITHER: Follow the links "Get Started" > "Go basic" from the Netvibes homepage and work through the wizard until you reach the "Sign Up" page.
    OR: Go directly to the Sign Up page.
  • Enter your details and sign up.
  • You will receive an "Account Activation" email from Netvibes.
  • Click the link in the email to activate your account and access the default mashup tab.
  • To add a new tab, click the "New Tab" link and enter a name for your new tab.

Add Dashboard plots to your mashup

Here we give instructions on adding plots from ATLAS DDM Dashboard and ATLAS Job Accounting Dashboard (Historical Views). In each case, it is assumed that you have already signed into Netvibes.

The same approach can be used to add plots from virtually any monitoring application. Links to many monitoring applications (not just Dashboard applications) can be found on the monitoring portals: ADC Monitoring for ATLAS and CMS Monitoring for CMS. Links to Dashboard applications for all VOs can be found from the Dashboard home page.

Publish your mashup

You can already access your mashup whenever you are signed into Netvibes. However if you wish to make it public to share with other users then you can follow the instructions below. It is assumed that you have already signed into Netvibes.
