Add New or Update Predefined CABI Dashboard Content
New dashboards and reports are released periodically, either as part of a CA Business Intelligence for CA UIM release or as standalone dashboard packages for specific probes. These updated packages are
not
automatically applied by CA UIM. To update dashboards in an existing UMP implementation, you must download the packages from the CA UIM support site, and then deploy the packages. Periodically check either the CA UIM support site or Admin Console Web Archive and update your dashboards as appropriate.
