Dashboard customizations

You can create or edit custom dashboards in your personal settings’s dashboards field. The two available options are globalDefault (that will be displayed if you haven’t entered into a repository) and repositoryDefault (this one can be overwritten on a repository level). These fields can contain a list of widget settings. Each widget should have a title, a widgetType and some settings that depends on the type. They can also have a minWidth property for the minimum width.

You can use some string expressions that will be replaced with the corresponding values in the content or the title. These phrases are: {currentUserName}, {currentRepositoryName}, and {currentRepositoryUrl}

Markdown widget

This widget type has only a content field in its settings that is a markdown content, the widget will simply display it. You can also use HTML syntax in markdown.

Query widget

You can define a custom query with results using the Query widget. The query field should contain a content query, you can define the columns and define some controls to be shown or hidden. The fields are: showColumnNames (this also enables ordering), showOpenInSearch and showRefresh.

The query widget has an additional mode that you can enable with the countOnly field - if you enable this, only the hit count will be displayed.

Updates widget
