  • Event


There are several examples of transactions provided in this Library Pack by default. These examples can be used to create similar transactions if needed.

Step 2) Verify that the dashboard is returning licensed feature data

Navigate to the Salesforce Lightning license optimization live dashboard and verify that there are no errors in your KPIs. This live dashboard relies on usage data returned by the Salesforce Lightning application based on the following key pages defined in the pre-built application:

key page Analytics = *analytics*
key page Knowledge List = *Knowledge*view
key page Knowledge Edit = *Knowledge*
key page Configure Price Quote (CPQ)= *SBQQ*

Note: In order to have this dashboard working, the key pages of Salesforce Lightning applications must be configured the same way as they are in the application contained in this pack. If you have customized your Salesforce Lightning instance, you may need to adjust the library configuration accordingly.
