Add New or Update Predefined CA Business Intelligence 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.

The following diagram shows the steps to complete when multiple packages are released. For more information about the packages in a release, see CA Business Intelligence JasperReports Server with CA UIM Release Notes.

Follow these steps:
 
  1. Verify that you are running the most current version of the cabi or cabi_external probe. If you are not using the current version, update your probe, uim_core_dashboards_pack packages, and any package dependencies. We recommend that you use the most current packages for your probe version. For more information about supported packages and versions, see CA Business Intelligence with CA UIM.
  2. Deploy the desired uim_<probe name>_dashboards_pack packages to the robot running the cabi or cabi_external probe.
    The dashboard packages for a specific monitoring technology are required if you need to monitor the specific technology. For example, you only need the uim_aws_dashboards_pack if you plan to view dashboards for an Amazon Web Services environment. If you are using specific monitoring technology dashboards, you should update the packages when a new package version is available.
  3. Locate the <probe name>.lar file. The file is at:
    <
    UIM_installation
    >/probes/service/cabi/lar/<probe name>.lar
     
  4. Log in to UMP as an administrator.
  5. Click 
    Manage, Page
    .
  6. Expand the Unified Dashboards node in the Private Pages tree and delete the existing menu item for the dashboard.
    The following figure shows an example where the AWS dashboards are deleted for a new aws.lar file.
    Manage Page  
  7. Import the new 
    <probe name>.lar
     file to your private pages.
    Import new probe name 
  8. Save your changes.
  9. Clear your browser cache.
    The predefined dashboards are added to CA UIM. You can view the predefined CA Business Intelligence dashboards from the Unified Dashboard menu. 
  10. Repeat this process to update the Unified Dashboards menu for a user or a user group as needed.
