How to use the Applications Dashboard

This dashboard lets users discover information about applications used by processes within a selected scope (i.e. folder, project).

  1. Choose Dashboards in the main header, then choose the Applications dashboard
  2. Choose a project, a folder, or an individual process as the scope then hit the OK button. If you choose a project, all processes within this project will be analyzed and displayed. If you choose a folder, then all processes within that folder.  If you choose a process, then that process will be the only information in the dashboard.
  3. Actions available on the Applications Dashboard include:
    1. Change Scope and Refresh: The "Change Scope" button launches the same dialog as when the dashboard was first launched, allowing you to select a different project, or folder, or process for analysis and display. The Refresh button will refresh the contents of the dashboard with the latest data in the chosen scope
    2. Application Usage: This area consists of the graphical Application Types 'donut' diagram, and the table called "Application Usage". The Application Types diagram shows the relative number of application types used across all the processes in the scope. Hovering the cursor on any segment in the diagram will show you the number for that particular type of application. The Application Usage table provides a listing of the specific applications used across the processes in the scope. Click on a column header to sort the table by that column, or use the search bar to find a specific application
  4. The Application Usage Table summarizes which applications are used and how many times they are used across the entire set of processes in the selected scope (project, folder). The columns can be sorted by clicking on the column headers and the table can be filtered on specific applications by typing them in the search bar at top-right.
  5. The "Processes Using Application" area is used to find all the processes that use a specific application, and the particular actions of that application that are used.
    1. Choose the name of an application in the drop-down and see a list of all processes that use that application. Expand a process in the list and see the specific steps of the process that use the application.
  6. The "Applications Used in Process" area is used to find all the applications used by a process.
    1. Choose a process artifact in the drop-down and see a list of all applications used by that process. Expand an application and see the particular application-actions being used by the process.
    2. If you click on the name of an application, it will launch the 'Processes Using Application' view showing the processes that use that application, as described in step 5
