MAP dashboards are used in ServiceNav to model and visualize equipment and services in real time.

MAP dashboards therefore accelerate technical operations by allowing the operator to focus on his areas of interest.

This document explains how to configure and use dashboards.

General principles


MAP dashboards are visible in the Dashboard tab of the application.

The dashboards are built from different models :

  1. User services, hosts and service checks
  2. Hosts and service categories
  3. Weather map - user services
  4. Weather map - hosts
  5. Mobile
  6. Status list
  7. MAP

There is no limit to the number of configurable dashboards per user.

The reports displayed in the dashboards are taken from the application's real-time status database. They can be refreshed automatically or manually.

Note: For the model MAPIf you select the "Status" menu item, the status is displayed in real time.


The following items can be configured for a dashboard :

  • Title
  • Visibility: public or private
  • Include or exclude certain events from showing

Rights management

A dashboard is created by a user at the account level. It is not inherited by accounts subordinate to the associated company.

Visibility rules are as follows:

  • All ServiceNav profiles with access to the Configuration > Reporting menu can create a dashboard.
  • All users of a company have access to that company's "public" visibility dashboards. Private" visibility dashboards are only accessible to the user that created it.
  • All ServiceNav profiles that can access the Dashboard tab can view the Dashboard carousel and operate a selected dashboard in the carousel.
  • All users in a company have access to that company's "public" visibility dashboards. The "private" visibility dashboards are only accessible by their creator.
