How to apply a business group or probe instance to dashboards
Applying a business group or probe instance to a dashboard provides context for information from your data sources.
A business group is made up of data sources, and a dashboard is made up of widgets. When viewing a dashboard, the widgets in the dashboard show you trending information collected from data sources across an entire business group or from a specific probe instance, depending on which you have chosen to apply to your dashboard.
To apply a business group or probe instance to a dashboard:
1. In the web interface, select a business group or probe instance.
This step is illustrated in Figure 12.

2. Choose your dashboard by clicking and choosing one from the leftmost panel.
3. Apply an ad hoc filter.
Applying an ad hoc filter is something you can do any time after choosing a dashboard.
 
The dashboard widgets now show you contextual information about traffic from your selected business group or probe instance.
