Annotations are used to tag and comment on various scenarios. They can be generated on different screens within the "Insights Hub Monitor" to annotate the data being viewed, using a dedicated button:

Create annotation

At present, annotations can be created from the following screens:

  • Dashboards in "Explore" section, when a specific dashboard is in view mode.
  • Assets in "Explore" section
  • Events in "Explore" section
  • Time Series in "Analyze" section

On creating an Annotation, a dialog is displayed where the user can enter a "Description" and freely-defined "Tags":

Create Annotation Dialog

The Annotations that have been created are displayed in the Events overview, alongside all other events. A filter for MindSphereAnnotation can be applied to narrow down the view and make specific columns, such as tags or username, visible.
