This page introduces codebeamer dashboards with their main functions.

Since codebeamer release 8.0, dashboards are available to create expressive and informative boards.


Dashboards inherit many features from Wiki pages (for example, permission management, export content, or having child pages), however, these focus more narrowly on visualization. Users can choose from the available widgets, which form the basis of all dashboards. These widgets are rendered using user-selectable layouts; all of them support drag-and-drop operation to simplify arranging the widgets within the layout.

Since codebeamer release 8.0, the root Wiki page in any project or personal Wiki space is a dashboard.


A toolbar on the top left side of the dashboard offers a number of options to create, modify, extend and customize dashboards.

Why Dashboards?

Extracting and presenting the enormous amount of information stored in an ALM system may be difficult at times. Different summaries are to be presented to different audiences in different situations, using different scopes.

codebeamer provides a lot of parametric wiki plugins and each presents one particular piece of information. With plugins, the information can be placed, configured and laid out according to various requirements.

Project homepages, personal homepages, tracker homepages, or new wiki pages can be customized with plugins.

Dashboards for Different Scopes

Dashboards can be set up for projects, sets of related projects, teams, or for a person.

On the project Wiki tab, the followings can be displayed:

  • Project summary
  • Recent activities
  • Basic statistics
  • Team members
  • Useful quick links to the most important project resources.

To implement a common dashboard for a set of related projects, create an umbrella project and use its Wiki tab, or use a regular wiki page in one of the projects.

Such dashboards show:

  • Merged activity streams
  • Aggregated statistics
  • Shortcuts to jump quickly into the sub-projects.

On the tracker pages, the followings can be displayed:

  • Recently submitted bugs
  • Recent comments
  • Number of the open versus resolved issues
  • Number of issues by various fields (Status, Assigned To, and so on).

For personal use:

  • Aggregate issues from projects
  • Artifacts related to the milestones.
  • Starred items
  • Quick links

can be displayed.
