The StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform’s Dashboard enables you to visually track and analyze key metrics such as risk across your environment, compliance status, and policy violations. The Dashboard view helps you to understand your cloud-native infrastructure, including images, containers, pods, namespaces, clusters, and their configurations.

When you open the StackRox portal for the first time, you may see a blank Dashboard. After you deploy StackRox Sensor in at least one cluster, your Dashboard reflects the status of your environment.

The Dashboard view includes multiple interactive widgets which show a summary of System Violations, summary of Compliance status, Violations by cluster, Top Risky Deployments, and Active Violations by Time. It also includes other widgets that are automatically generated when you create new policy categories.

System Violations

The System Violations widget (upper-left) shows the number of Critical, High, Medium, and Low severity violations on the Dashboard view. You can select the number on the widget to view details about those violations.

Active Violations by Time

The Active Violations by Time widget shows the scale of number of violations by recent days, with the colors indicating the severity: Critical, High, Medium, Low.

Configurable Dashboard Widgets

Other widgets visible on the Dashboard view are generated from the policy categories you define and the violations they trigger. See the Manage Security Policies topic for more information on security policies and policy categories.
