Adding Data Sources and Managing Metrics

Serena Dashboard uses data adapters in WebFOCUS to connect with supported data sources, such as Serena Release Manager, ChangeMan ZMF, and Serena Development Manager. The Serena Dashboard installer configures these data adapters for you, however you must log into Dashboard and define the correct connection information for Release Manager, Development Manager, or whichever applications you use. When you add a connection to one of the supported data sources, Dashboard also imports a collection of pre-defined, out-of-box metrics which you can then organize into packages. Dashboard also creates a set of default views that you can use to review the metrics.
