The Heroku Dashboard
Last updated 17 January 2018
The Heroku Dashboard is the web user interface for Heroku’s core features and functionality. It provides UI support for things like creating/renaming/deleting apps, configuring add-ons, managing Heroku Teams, creating Heroku Pipelines, deploying your application, viewing and responding to application metrics, and accessing usage, invoices and billing information.
Search Dashboard with Quick Jump
Use the Quick Jump in the main navigation to jump to Favorites, Apps, Pipelines, Spaces, Teams and Orgs. Quick Jump can be accessed by clicking into the search box, or by typing
/ from your keyboard. If you have favorited applications or Heroku Pipelines, they will be listed in the Quick Jump results until you start typing your search phrase. When you begin typing, Quick Jump will automatically search and display results.
By default the main screen of the Heroku Dashboard is a list of your personal applications. The app lists give you information like name, technology, stack, and region about your personal apps, or apps you have access to as a member of a Heroku Team of Heroku Enterprise Organization. Access the corresponding team or organization app lists through the context switcher located at the top left of your apps list.
Selecting the app you wish to work on from either the Quick Jump or the app list will navigate you to the app overview page. This page will give you at a glance information about metrics, installed add-ons, dyno formation, collaborator activity, and latest deployment activity. Get more detailed information about these sections by clicking on the tabs on top of the overview screen.
The Application Actions Menu, located in the top right under your user profile, allows you to view logs, open the Dashboard console and use Heroku run commands, use production check, restart dynos, and add the application to a pipeline if it is not in one already.
From the Application Actions Menu, select Run console to use ‘heroku run’. The web console allows you to attach to a one-off dyno and enter a
heroku run command as you would from the command line.
Run console is currently in beta. If you have questions or feedback, please email us at email@example.com
The Heroku Dashboard can be customized by favoriting applications and setting your default app list.
Favorite applications from the app list or the application overview screen. Once an application is favorited, it will float to the top of the app list. Favorites are also listed on the Quick Jump results if nothing has been entered. When applications that are using Heroku Metrics are favorited, a snippet of the metrics information is visible on the apps list.
Change your default app list in Account Settings by selecting the team you want to load by default whenever you navigate to dashboard.heroku.com from the Default App List picker.
