Building Workstation Views

A user's working space comprises views containing widgets for various workflows critical to data analysis.

Views are highly customizable workspaces designed for data analysis. Multiple views can be utilized to filter multiple distinct streams of system generated events over time, or to shift the focus of analysis (such as a workspace dedicated to Collections and another to event or risk history.


Views are self-contained, unless that view is shared as a view template.

This guide walks through creating user views, adding and working with widgets, and managing any existing user views.


This guide assumes you are logged into your Cogynt Workstation URL with these minimum permissions:

  • Workstation Views: READ and WRITE

It can be useful to have a view specifically for testing during Workstation setup and as new data is ingested. Use this space to test various widgets, view layouts, and configurations.

Once a suitable configuration is found, save it as a view template to duplicate it or share it with other users.

Once a view is created, users can populate it with widgets. Users can create as many views as needed, and can easily navigate between views.
