Using OpenSearch™ Dashboards enables any Horizzon user with access to the dashboards to query for, add, modify and delete data, even if that data is for collaborations or dashboards this user is not invited for. Users that manage dashboards will have access to all data from all models. It bypasses any access restrictions that have been configured for the models.

If you prefer not to use the dashboards feature because of this, Bizzdesign can disable OpenSearch Dashboards for you. Please contact Bizzdesign Support and request deactivation of OpenSearch Dashboards.

As a Lead Designer you can create dashboards in OpenSearch Dashboards using data from your Enterprise Studio models, and then share the dashboards with other users in Horizzon. Dashboards from OpenSearch Dashboards can offer additional insights into your Enterprise Studio data.

The sharing of dashboards in Horizzon is aimed at sharing with other users that can only view dashboards: Designers, Contributors and Consumers. These users will be able to view dashboards that have been shared with them via groups. As a Lead Designer you can always view and manage all dashboards that are shared in Horizzon, no matter which groups you are in. Administrator and System Administrator users cannot access dashboards unless they have additional roles enabling this.

Required roles

Lead Designer


  1. In the sidebar menu, click Dashboards. The Dashboards page opens. It can still be empty or already contain some dashboards.

  2. If you already have a dashboard available on the page, continue with the next step to share the dashboard, unless you would like to create another dashboard. In that case, complete this step.

    If you do not have a dashboard available yet, or want to create another one, click Create dashboard
    . The OpenSearch Dashboards application opens in a new browser tab in your web browser, and you can start creating a dashboard. Because OpenSearch Dashboards is a third party application, please refer to the OpenSearch Dashboards documentation for instructions about creating dashboards.

    After you have saved your dashboard in OpenSearch Dashboards, return to the dashboards page in Horizzon. If you do not see the new dashboard yet, refresh the page.

  3. Click next to the name of the dashboard you want to share and then click Share dashboard.

  4. Select the user groups you want to share the dashboard with and click Apply. The users from these groups will be able to view the dashboard in Horizzon. Please note that sharing a dashboard is only relevant for groups of users with the Designer, Contributor or Consumer role. These users can only view dashboards when shared with them via groups.

    If you want to preview or edit the dashboard before sharing it with others, click Preview to view the dashboard, or click Edit to edit the dashboard in OpenSearch Dashboards.

The dashboard is now available for the users of the selected groups. Also, all Lead Designer users will automatically be able to view and manage the dashboard.

Clicking a dashboard on the Dashboards page will open it in Horizzon. Once a dashboard has been shared in Horizzon, its content will automatically be updated with the latest changes made in Enterprise Studio once these changes have been committed.

Making changes to a dashboard

All Lead Designer users can make changes to the dashboards, like editing it in OpenSearch Dashboards or changing the groups a dashboard is shared with, or to even delete the dashboard. Click next to the dashboard name and click Manage dashboard to open the dashboard manage page and make the desired changes.
