You can build your own custom widgets and add them to your dashboards. Extend the functionality of your dashboards to grab content from external sources or present data from connected services in a unique format. Support for this feature has also been added to the new Project Overview page.
If you're not quite confident in your own ability to create a custom widget, you can access widgets built by other users that have been uploaded to the JetBrains Plugins Repository. You might find exactly the widget you're looking for without having to build it yourself.
Custom widgets help you create a consolidated overview of the information that is important to your team. For example:
- Your Quality Assurance team uses dedicated software for testing. You can build a custom widget that displays a list of failing tests.
- Your Customer Support Engineers use dedicated software for managing support requests. You can build a custom widget that displays the number of unanswered requests.
For more examples, see Sample Custom Widgets.
Manage the status of each widget in a central location on the Custom Widgets page. We've even built a playground where you can preview and test your widgets.
