Create a Personal Dashboard

CMx dashboards are more customizable than ever using Personal Dashboards: now, any user with access to cost data and reports can create their own dashboards. These dashboards are specific to each user, allowing you to create a one-stop shop for the data most relevant to you. For example, you can create a dashboard of cost consumption and spend for a very specific workload without interrupting shared content across teams or partners.

New personal dashboard with custom panes


To create a personal dashboard, users must have a combination of the following permissions:

  1. View Cost Summary Report or Manage Cost Summary Reports
  2. View List Cost or View Actual Cost

For example, a user will be able to create a personal dashboard if they have the View Cost Summary Report and View Actual Cost permissions.
