In the main pane of the Dashboard page, there are the following sub-panes:

  1. In the status pane, you can see a summary of backup job history, the status of your registered Kubernetes clusters, and a summary of your registered cloud provider accounts. The “PV details” link under “Capacity used” will open a list of your Kubernetes persistent volumes. For more details, see Persistent Volumes.

  2. In the backup section, you can see a list of your configured backups for Kubernetes clusters and cloud databases. For each cluster backup definition, you will see the associated policy and cluster, the date and time of the last run, and the results of the last 3 runs. You can also initiate a backup or restore using the provided buttons. Moreover, you can quickly define a new backup by clicking Define backup. Click the tabs Cluster Backups or Database Backups to switch between listings of these two types of backups.

  3. In the notification pane, you can see the following types of notification messages:

    • Product information Notification messages about the CloudCasa service, such as system maintenance notices and announcements regarding new features.

    • Error notification: Notification messages about errors such as unreachable clusters or inaccessible cloud provider accounts. If you see Open ► in the notification pane, click the button and you can edit the object that has the issue.

    • Payment notification: Notification messages about payment for CloudCasa paid services, such as expiring credit cards.

  4. The Shortcuts pane appears by default above the Activity and Alerts tabs, complete with some default shortcuts. You can remove or re-order shortcuts by clicking on the edit icon. Click the trash icon to a delete shortcut, or drag shortcuts up and down in the list to reorder them. To add a new shortcut, navigate to the page you would like to link to and click the star icon located next to the page title or in the upper right corner (you can also toggle it off by clicking on it again).

    If you don’t wish to see the shortcuts pane, simply remove all the configured shortcuts and it will disappear entirely. Starring a new page will cause it to re-appear.

  5. The Activity & Alerts pane contains two tabs:

    • In the Activity tab, you can see information about important job activity, such as the current status or completion results for each backup job.
