add a new navigation menu to an app and link it to a certain dashboard

New Member

I have created a new app and want to to add a new navigation menu to open a certain dashboard
Went to: Manager > User interface > Navigation menus
and added this line:

 <collection label="Dashboards">
    <view name="mydashboard" />
  </collection>
  <collection label="Search views">
    <view name="mysearchview" />
    <a href="http://google.com">Google</a>
  </collection>

how ever, this only creates the "search views" menu and a link to google.com
would it be possible to change the menu to open a certain dashboard?
Or even open a blank dashboard which I could edit and put all the information ?
The reason is that I have one big dashboard and need to filter out the information.
Was thinking of originally to create buttons to servers and their dashboards, but that isnt possible.
Adding menu's for the servers seems a good solution. User can just click on the menu and will get the dashboard for the server.

Absolutely!

You can link the nav to anything in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<yourapp>/<default | local>/data/ui/views - note ur path should be either default OR local as denoted by the pipe in my example path. If you save a dashboard in an app, you can see it under that app's local/data/ui/views.
