Use the generated SQL dashboard


This feature is in Public Preview.

This page describes the dashboard that is automatically created when a monitor is run.

When a monitor runs, it creates a Databricks SQL dashboard that displays key metrics computed by the monitor. The visualizations included in the default dashboard configuration depend on the profile type, and the different metrics are organized into sections. The left side of the dashboard shows lists of the metrics and statistics included in the tables and charts.

The dashboard has user-editable parameters for both the entire dashboard and for each chart, allowing you to customize the date range, data slices, models, and so on. You can also modify the charts shown or add new ones.

The dashboard is created in the user’s account and is customizable and shareable like any Databricks SQL dashboard. For general information about using and customizing Databricks SQL dashboards, including adding new charts, editing charts, viewing queries, and so on, see Databricks SQL dashboards.

Refresh the dashboard

The dashboard displays metrics that have been calculated by the monitor. To refresh the values shown on the dashboard, you must trigger a monitor refresh using the UI or the API, or set up a scheduled run (UI, API). You can’t refresh the metrics from the dashboard. When you modify the dashboard, statistics aren’t recalculated.

The metric tables and the dashboard generated by a monitor are updated separately. When you trigger a monitor refresh, the metric tables are updated, but the dashboard is not automatically updated. To update the data shown on the dashboard, click the Refresh button on the dashboard.

Similarly, when you click Refresh on the dashboard, it doesn’t trigger monitor calculations. Instead, it runs the queries over the metric tables that the dashboard uses to generate visualizations. To update the data in the tables used to create the visualizations that appear on the dashboard, you must refresh the monitor and then refresh the dashboard.

Select data to display

Use the widgets at the top of the dashboard to control what data is included.


When you open a dashboard from the link provided in the notebook, you must make a selection for every filter. If you do not, the charts combine data from all time windows, and the results may be misleading. If you open the dashboard from the Catalog Explorer UI, the selectors are pre-set.

The screenshot shows the filters for Snapshot analysis. For TimeSeries and InferenceLog analysis, additional selectors appear.
