What are the predefined dashboards?

The Zscaler service provides predefined dashboards. The portal displays the dashboards and widgets according to your organization’s subscriptions. For example, if your organization has a subscription to the web security service only, you can see dashboards and widgets that report on web traffic, but not those that report on mobile traffic. You can customize the predefined dashboards, if you have the appropriate permissions.

Note that by default, user-related widgets include locations and users. You can exclude locations by creating new or editing existing widgets and using the Exclude Location filter. This filter applies to all user-related widgets except for widgets in the default Security and Email Overview dashboards. To learn more, see How do I exclude locations in user-related reports?
