Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

In previous releases, you could create customized dashboards using the Flash-based dashboard environment. This version of the software replaces the Flash-based dashboard with an HTML5-based dashboard. Because of the difference on dashboard widgets and technology differences, your customized Flash dashboards are not rolled forward during the upgrade to the new version.

Impact

You will not be able to see your previously saved, customized, Flash-based dashboards after upgrading to 14.0.0 or later. This occurs because of technological and framework differences between the old Flash-based dashboard and the new HTML5-based dashboard.

Conditions

-- Using pre-v14.0.0 software. -- Creating custom, Flash-based dashboards. -- Upgrading to v14.0.0 or later.

Workaround

Although there is no direct workaround, the new dashboard lets you create customized dashboard views that do migrate with upgrades.
