Full Description

Ibex Dashboard

Notice: This repo is in the process of moving into a new home. We will update once this happens in this page.

Ibex is a dashboarding application that enables building dashboard and templates.
It mainly supports Application Insights but data sources and visual components are easily extendable.


Version 1.2 (October 16, 2017)

Version 1.2 breaks the persitency paths of dashboard files and custom templates. If you are upgrading to this version, copy your private dashboards from /dashboards into /dashboards/persistent/ as follows:

Private Files: Move files from /dashboards/*.private.js to /dashboards/persistent/private.

Custom Templates: Move files from /dashboards/customTemplates/*.private.ts to /dashboards/persistent/customTemplates.



npm install yarn -g

git clone
cd ibex-dashboard
yarn start

Using Bot Analytics Instrumented Dashboard

  1. Open http://localhost:4000
  2. Create a new template from Bot Analytics Instrumented Dashboard
  3. Run through the Application Insights setup and fill in API Key and Application ID according to the application insights account associated with your registered bot.

Application Insights Integration

Since application insights API doesn't support ARM yet, we need to manually create an API Key for the application insights service.
The full instructions are also available when you create a new dashboard.

You can also follow the next headline.

Create new API Key and Application ID

The following steps explain how to connect Application Insights bot with your bot and your dashboard:
[you can also follow the official Application Insights article].

  1. Go to azure portal
  2. Select: Resource Groups > [new resource group] > App Insights Service
  3. Copy Instrumentation Key and paste into your bot registration page (on the bottom)
  4. Click: API Access > Create New Key > + Read Telemetry
  5. Copy Application ID + API Key
  6. Open the URL of your web app
  7. Under AppId/ApiKey set the values you created.

Adding Application Insights instrumentation to your bot


The test watcher is integrated into the create-react-app mechanism and runs tests related to files changes since the last commit.

To run the test watcher in an interactive mode:

cd client
yarn test

Alternatively, you can also run the full commands that the Travis CI server
will run to validate any changes.



Our CI server Travis creates new production builds automatically for changes
to master. If you need to create a build locally, you can execute the same
commands as the CI server.

yarn build
