If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, verify all required data sources for the Unified Dashboard are enabled. The required probe must be deployed and must be configured so that required QoS metrics and subkeys or targets are activated. For more information, see the help topic on required data sources for the Unified Dashboard.
AWS Required Data Sources
This table lists the probes, QoS metrics, and subkeys or targets that must be activated to populate data in the AWS dashboard.
