I am working on a dashboard to show attributes of our ldap-based users of Splunk. I thought it would be fun to leverage the tag cloud visualization included in splunk 6 dashboard examples app to show our most heavy users. This is my first attempt at use of custom visualizations among the examples.
I cloned the tag cloud visualization with auto-discovery dashboard. Now that I've got that that working with my own custom search, I want to get rid rid of the description ?panel? at the bottom of the dashboard... I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of it! Any suggestions?
Those are automagically built by dashboard.js in etc/apps/simple_xml_examples/appserver/static, which is loaded for every dashboard in that app. Once you move your cloned dashboard to its target app the description panel will disappear. Note, you may need to copy some JS/CSS files needed for the tag cloud as well.
Thanks! I don't see an option to move the dashboard. If I wanted to make the dashboard part of the search app, what folders should I move and to where?
Is this process documented somewhere that I am missing?
As for moving dashboards, you can move them like any object by navigating to Settings -> User Interface -> Views and then clicking Move for the dashboard you want to move.
got it! thank you! steps:
I downloaded dashboard examples and have made some new panels. However I'm getting the big xml preview panel on the bottom of all my dashboards in my working app and don't know how to get rid of them. Can anyone help please?
Ok, funny how you post a question then do something and it works. I must have copied dashboard.js over to my app. I've gone in there now and rem'd out some lines and I no longer see the preview code at the bottom.
