Suggest edit Updated on October 7, 2021

You can create your own widgets to display on the Pega Robot Manager dashboard.

For example, you can create a report that displays the percentage of robotic automations on a robot that run and are successfully completed on the first attempt. The following procedure describes how to create a report widget to display on the dashboard.
  1. Create a report in Dev Studio in your application ruleset.
    For more information, see Creating advanced reports.
  2. Create a section in your application ruleset.
    For more information, see .
  3. Add a chart control to the section and configure it so that it displays the report that you created:
    1. In the Data Source section, from the Type list, select Report Definition.
    2. In the Applies to field, press the Down Arrow and select the class to which your report applies.
    3. In the Report field, press the Down Arrow and select the name of your report.
    4. From the X-axis data field, select the property to use for the X-axis.
    5. Configure other information, as appropriate.
      For more information, see Adding a chart.
    6. Click Submit.
  4. Mark the section as a widget, and configure the report widget:
    1. In the Edit Section form, click Settings.
    2. In the Widget title section, enter the name of the widget.
    3. From the Category list, select Robotic process automation.
    4. Configure other information, as appropriate.
