Importing the initial gallery

Trends contains a prebuilt gallery of boards, panels, and sources. The gallery includes:

  • Trends boards that use sensors from the Core Content and Default Content packs to provide environmental visibility.
  • Boards for any installed Tanium solutions that use module sources or saved question sources. For example, if Tanium Discover is installed, you can import a Discover gallery that contains predefined boards, panels and sources that use data provided by Discover.

Use the gallery to explore how boards, panels, and sources work together to visualize data. You can even edit the gallery or clone boards to make your own boards.

Included Trends boards

Trends provides the following boards in the initial gallery:

Board Description
Connect Daily data throughput and connection metrics
Containers Container usage in the environment (requires Tanium Containers)
Inventory Hardware and software in the environment
IT Hygiene Assessment Managed and unmanaged assets in the environment
IT Operations Metrics Business metrics for IT operations
Operations Monitoring Reboot status, browser versions, and product versions

Tanium Client Counts Counts of Tanium-managed clients, derived from Client Status

Tanium Health Endpoint status and Tanium Client versions
Trends - Module Health Source collections and Trends resource usage on the Module Server

This list only contains boards provided in the Trends initial gallery; it does not contain boards that are provided separately by other Tanium solutions.

Before you begin

  • If the Core Content pack, Default Content pack, or Tanium modules are not present when you import the gallery, the corresponding Trends boards, panels, and sources are not created. You can reimport the gallery at a later time after you import the content or solution to create these boards, panels, or sources.
  • If you import Trends with the default settings, Trends automatically imports the initial gallery. This includes boards and sources provided by other Tanium solutions that are already imported and configured.
  • If you import Trends with the default settings and later import another Tanium solution, Trends automatically imports the boards and sources for that solution after the service account is configured for the solution.

If you are using Tanium™ Cloud, the initial gallery is imported by default. You can use these steps to re-import the initial gallery.

Import the gallery

When you import the gallery, you can select which boards and panels to import. Trends creates those boards along with any corresponding sources, panels, and sections. You can reimport the gallery at any time.

Trends does not overwrite panels or sources that already exist in your Trends workbench. To reset any panels or sources in the galleries, delete the panels and sources that you want to reset, and then reimport the gallery. If you import a board that already exists in your Trends workbench, Trends merges any new panels into the existing board.

  1. From the Trends menu, click Boards to open the Boards page.
  2. Go to Options > Import Gallery.
    • Alternatively, you can also import the gallery from the Quick Links on the Trends Overview page.
    • If available, you can also import the gallery from the Quick Links on the Trends Overview page.
  3. Select the boards, sections, and panels to import.
    • If you select a panel, the parent section and board are automatically selected.
    • If you select a section, the parent board and child panels are automatically selected.
  4. Click Validate.
  5. Review the content to import and select resolutions for any conflicts.
  6. Click Import.

    To reselect which boards to import, click Back. To exit without importing, click Cancel.

Any saved questions used by imported panels are issued immediately. Within a few seconds, Trends begins to collect initial results and display data in the boards and panels. After the initial data appears, explore the boards and panels to discover what you can do with Trends. You can make modifications to titles, text descriptions, dates, and clone a board if you want to create a similar board.
