The Active Incident Details widget provides the details of each active incident included in your filter. The configurable columns for different data points allow you to display only the columns you care about. The ordering of the columns can be set along with which column is used for sorting (the carrot). Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics.
