Dashboards enable you to view and organize charts and data. Ivanti Neurons has two main dashboard types:

  • Home dashboard: The default dashboard that summarizes important Ivanti Neurons data gathered from various components.
  • Custom dashboards: The Dashboards page shows your custom dashboards. Create widgets that contain the charts or data you want to see, then size them and move them around. You can also mark a dashboard to be the default dashboard that your company sees when analysts open the Dashboards page.

Using the Home dashboard

View the Home dashboard by clicking Home in the left navigation pane. New Ivanti Neurons instances that have not been configured yet will instead show a getting started dashboard. This initial dashboard helps new customers deploy agents, set up Ivanti Neurons roles and permissions, and configure their instance so it can start gathering data.

Once an instance has begun gathering data, the Home dashboard changes to an Ivanti Neurons summary dashboard view specific to your organization showing these categories of information:

  • Home: Key performance indicator (KPI) summaries in categories such as devices, patch and security, software, and people. Click an options menu ( ) in the Home dashboard's top row to change what that KPI chart displays. Some chart elements are clickable and will provide more details.
  • Device management: Data about discovered and managed devices. Unseen devices are managed devices that have not communicated with Ivanti Neurons for at least 7 days.
  • Highlights past 7 days: A 7-day summary of discovered devices by type and OS, and discovered people by department. The department widget relies on data from connectors that provide information on people, such as Microsoft Azure Active Directory or Ivanti Neurons for ITSM.
  • Organizational DEX score: The highest-level DEX view, that aggregates all data from the four DEX Device and People score domains. For more information, see DEX Scores.
  • Devices: Device OS, warranty, and manufacturer data. Warranty information is only available if you have connectors that report it on your managed devices, such as the Dell or Lenovo Warranty connectors.
  • Software inventory: Overall summary of installed software, including most popular vendors and applications.
  • Software spend intelligence: Top software by vendor cost and renewal cost. Only visible if you have a Spend Intelligence license.
  • Patch management: Compliance reporting, devices with and without a patch policy, and devices by exploit and malware type. Only visible if you have a Patch Management license.
