Can I still generate PDF reports in Advanced XML dashboards using the latest version of splunk(6.1.3)? If so, please help me on how to go through this.

Thanks,

Hi,

I want to add a button on the upper right side of the page so that when the user click the button it will generate PDF reports. I know that this is possible in simple xml, however, I need to have that functionality in advanced XML as well. Also, I need to enable the schedule PDF delivery in Advanced XML as well.

Thanks,

Care to elaborate what functionality you're looking for?

Users can click the PDF button which is available by default from Simple XML.

What are you looking for specifically?

With Splunk... the answer is always "YES!". It just might require more regex than you're prepared for!
