Chef Automate Dashboard - Information gathering

Hello forum,

I am quite puzzled at the moment by the Chef Automate Dashboard.
It shows uploaded Cookbooks with version info, Databag items created/deleted etc.
However our Automate is NOT yet connected to any Chef Infra Servers. At the moment it is solely used to display audit compliance runs.

I am wondering, where does Automate get its information for the dashboard from? Checked the config and cannot find anything relevant to that question.
Can someone point me into the right direction?


edit: To clarify, I mean the "Event Feed" Dashboard.
