I would really love to talk through editing pre-built dashboards. Specifically, my question is around adding pickers/selectors which can interact with predefined tokens like Time. A specific example would be to clone and modify the "SOC Operations" Default ES Dashboard to adjust it with additional time slicing options, or to use the time picker instead of the default time widget already on the dashboard. Looking forward to this!

Hey there! Unfortunately, the SOC Operations dashboard in ES is not editable at the moment. We recommend submitting a Splunk Idea request for this! Other documentation here:

You can, however, do this in Dashboard Studio! Watch the Office Hours recording (emailed to you) for a demo on how to use the time range picker and time tokens in Dashboard Studio. Also check out this documentation:

Hi, I would like a demo of the drill-down. For example, if I user selects a value on the bar chart, then the rest of the graph should filter on a selected value.  Also is it possible to pass tokens from one dashboard to another?

Expert Solution:

  1. On the bar chart, configure a drilldown to "Set Tokens"
  2. Define a token name, then specify whether you want to use the selected field value, field name, or the value of another specified field.
  3. Then update the searches for your other charts to filter based on the token you defined.
