Widgets Overview

reports dashboard General overview of widgets, including the various ways of creating and adding widgets.
Widgets are visual components that enable you to analyze data internally or externally from Cortex XSOAR, in different formats such as graphs, pie charts, text from information, and so on.
Cortex XSOAR comes with a number of out-of-the-box system widgets, such as
Today’s New Incidents
,
Late Incidents
, and Saved by Dbot, etc. You can edit these widgets, when creating or editing a dashboard or report.
Some out-of-the-box system widgets are not editable. If you want to change these widgets, go to the github widgets repository, download, update the JSON file, and upload it to the
Widgets Library
.
You can create widgets from the following and then add them to a dashboard or report, as required:
  • Widgets Library: create the widget in the
    Widgets Library
    which is then available for all users.
  • Create a Widget From an Incident: create the widget from the incident page and then add it to a dashboard or a report.
  • Create a Widget from an Indicator: create the widget from the indicators page then add it to a dashboard or a report.
  • JSON file: these are static widgets and display relatively straightforward information, such as grouping incidents severity by type, active incidents by type, and so on.
  • Automation Script: you can create dynamic widgets using automation scripts for more complex calculations, such as calculating the percentage of incidents that DBot closed. The automation script can pull information from the Cortex XSOAR API. For examples, see Script Based Widgets Using Automation Scripts Examples.
    If you want to add a script based widget to a dashboard or report, you need to create a widget in the
    Widgets Library
    . You can create or upload the script to the
    Automation
    page or you can directly upload the script to the
    Widgets Library
    .
You can also add a custom widget in the War Room, so you can easily view the incident in a widget format, such as severity in a bar chart.
If you have a significant numbers of widgets, performance may be affected. You should try to keep widgets simple (no scripts) and refresh times higher than 1 minute whenever possible.
