Details modal for elements
To show various details of an element, you can search for the element you are interested in the corresponding overview screen, and click the
icon on the right of your element. From the now appearing options, you can click Show Details to open the details modal of the element.
Opening the details modal of a widget
The Show Details options are currently available for
After opening the details modal, the following information about the element will be presented to you:
The first part of the details modal will show you some general information about the element:
- Name: the name of the element
- Date created: the exact date and time when the element was created
- Last changed: the exact date and time when the last update of the element happened
- Owner: the user who currently owns this element
The 'Used in' section will show you all elements where your select element is used in.
So for example, if you are currently looking at the details of a widget, this section will show you in which dashboards the widget is used. If you are looking at a dataset, it will show you in which widgets, scripts, automations and virtual events this dataset is used.
Example "Used in" section for a dataset
As in the example image above, if you e.g. don't see a group "Scripts", it means that your element is not used in any scripts.
The "Used in" section is not shown for dashboards, because a dashboard can not be used by any other element.
In contrast to the "Used in" section, the "Uses" section shows you all elements that the selected element uses.
So for example, if you are currently looking at the details of a widget, this section will show you all the datasets and scripts that the widget is using. The information will be shown to you in a tree structure, which means that you can also see indirect use relations. As an example, if you have a widget that uses a script, the uses section not only shows you the script, but also any dataset that the script may use internally.
Example "Uses" section for a widget
The "Uses" section is not shown for datasets, because datasets do not use any other elements.
