To view a dashboard in Insights, click on the corresponding tile from the grid. The dashboard will open with any pre-configured filters, highlighted in the Filters section (located above the dashboard tiles).
To create a new dashboard, take the following steps:
- Navigate to the Insights home page.
- Click the Create New Dashboard button on the top-right corner of the page.
- In the pop-up window, enter a name for the dashboard and click the Create button. You will be directed to a blank dashboard page with the following message and button:
Note: Long dashboard names can cause tile icons to be improperly displayed. To fix the issue, shorten the name or remove all spaces.
- Click Edit Dashboard and then select Add Tile. You can now see a window asking you to choose an Explore. This means that you need to specify which of the entities you would like fields from (Jobs, queues, or robot logs). If you have ROI Editor permissions, you will also see the Process and Queue Manual Values Explores.
Click the Explore that corresponds to the fields you want to include in your dashboard. For example: Process Name is available under the Jobs explore, Queue Name is under the Queues explore, etc.Note:
If you pick the wrong explore and want to switch to another one, you need to click Cancel and start again.
Merged results are not supported across multiple explores or models (e.g., configuring a tile to compare results between an Insights Jobs explore and an Automation Hub explore).
For detailed instructions on how to proceed next, we recommend reading Looker’s guides for creating dashboards, found below.
The following pages help you create dashboards through the Looker UI:
- Creating User-Defined Dashboards: Creating dashboards and adding dashboard tiles.
- Editing User-Defined Dashboards: Editing dashboards; rearranging tiles, resizing tiles, editing dashboard tiles, adjusting dashboard settings; and deleting dashboards.
- Adding and Editing User-Defined Dashboard Filters: Adding, configuring, editing, and deleting dashboard filters.
- Cross-Filtering Dashboards: Enabling filters, creating filters, sharing dashboards, drilling into the data, and removing cross-filters.
- Using forecasting in visualizations: Create, display, and monitor forecasted results in visualizations.
Note: Before switching between dark and light theme, you need to save all changes made to your dashboard.
You can duplicate any dashboard in My Dashboards by clicking the Share/Duplicate button on the dashboard tile and selecting Duplicate.
A copy of the selected dashboard is created and appears in the My Dashboards section. This copy is completely separate and can be edited without any impact to the original dashboard.
Any user can select the time zone displayed in any dashboard. To update it, go to the dashboard's three-dot menu, select Each tile's time zone, and pick the desired time zone. The default dashboard time zone is the same as the one set for the respective tenant in Orchestrator. This will be accessible under the Viewer Time Zone option from the dropdown.
Dashboards created will default to this Viewer Time Zone, and this time zone will be maintained when a user clicks Explore From Here on any dashboard. When adding or editing a tile in an existing dashboard, the tile will default to UTC.
When creating new tiles, you have the option to Explore from Here.
Clicking this button allows you to open a tile creation window with the existing data selection. This allows you to freely experiment with any tile edits without affecting your dashboard.
You can then save your new tile into a new dashboard, or save to an existing one by clicking the gear menu on the top-right corner of the explore, and then selecting Save to Dashboard. In the resulting window, select the Group folder to save to Tenant, and the Personal folder to save to My Dashboards.
To switch between dashboards, you need to go back to the Insights home page, and then select the dashboard you are interested in. To get to the Insights home page when you are viewing a dashboard, you can either click the Insights button on the left navigation menu, or select the UiPath or Insights logo on the top left of the page.
Cloud Insights supports creation of pre-defined filters, as well as cross-filtering via interaction with the dashboard. Pre-defined filters are created during the dashboard edit experience.
To create a pre-defined filter:
- Navigate to your desired dashboard and open it in edit mode.
Click the filter button, and select the Add Filter option.
- Search for the field you'd like to filter on, and select it.
- Pick the filter type, provide a default value if desired, and select which tiles this filter should apply to under the Tiles to Update tab. If this is a dashboard-level filter, you will most likely want the filter to apply to all tiles on the dashboard.
To cross-filter a dashboard, make sure that cross filtering is enabled by toggling it "on" in the filter menu when editing a dashboard. Once you've saved the dashboard, or if you're interacting with any of the UiPath Templates, click items in widget tiles that you'd like to filter the dashboard by, and the selected criteria will appear to the right of your pre-defined filters at the top of the dashboard. You can repeat this for as many filters as you need. To remove a cross-filter, use the X button next to it.
- To edit a pre-defined filter, open the dashboard in edit mode and follow the steps above to access the filter menu. Make sure you save the dashboard once you're done making the desired changes.
- You can hide or show filters by clicking the Filter icon.
- If you'd like to change the current value on a pre-defined filters, make your desired changes and then click the blue update button to the left of the Filter icon in order to update the dashboard with the latest selection.
- Opening the 3-dot menu to the right of the filter button displays the following options:
Clear cache and refresh

Only available if this is a dashboard that you created.
Downloads the dashboard in a format of choice (covered in the Exporting Dashboards section below).

Tenant dashboards are available to all Insights users. However, only users with Designer permissions can contribute to them. Viewers can view all dashboards shared to Tenant but cannot share any there themselves.
To share a dashboard to Tenant, take the following steps:
- Navigate to the My Dashboards tab on the home page, and find the tile of the dashboard you want to share to Tenant. Click the Copy icon.
- From the resulting menu, click Share with Tenant. The dashboard will then appear in the Tenant tab with the user who shared it as the owner.
Note: To make a local copy of a dashboard from Tenant back to My Dashboards for customizing, Designer users can use the Copy to My Dashboards icon.

- You can choose how much data you want to download:
- Current results table: the number of rows specified by the row limit of your Explore.
- All Results: all results returned by the query.
- Custom: a custom number of rows.
You can export a dashboard and import it into the same tenant, a different tenant, or even another cloud organization. This procedure can also be used to export a dashboard from an on-premises environment and import it to an Automation Cloud™ environment. The following dashboards can be exported:
- Dashboards that use the base Insights model (Jobs, Queues, and Robot Logs that come with the product).
- Personal dashboards from the My Dashboards and Tenant Dashboards tabs.
- Dashboards that use ROI, custom variables, and integration data.
Dashboards that do not fall into any of the previously mentioned categories do not have the option to be exported.
To export a Dashboard, you must have the Designer role.
For more information on roles, check the Granting Permissions page.
To export a Dashboard, you need to click the Download icon on any dashboard card and select Export from the drop-down list.
The exported file is downloaded to the download location configured in your browser.
To import Dashboards, follow the steps below:
- Navigate to the Insights home page.
- Click the Create New Dashboard button on the top-right corner of the page and select Import Dashboard from the drop-down list.
- Click Click to Upload Your File to select the Dashboard you want to import.
- Insert a title for the new Dashboard.
- Click Create.
- Optional: Map ROI and custom variables to the target environment.
In case of custom variables, only the target variables that match the data type are displayed in the drop-down list.
You can delete dashboards individually using the Delete button on the dashboard tile. Alternatively, you can open a particular dashboard, click the three-dot menu in the top-right corner of the dashboard window, and select Move to trash.
If a dashboard is accidentally deleted, please reach out to UiPath Technical Support for assistance in recovering it.
