After upgrading to 6.5, if you have a multi-page panel and are using auto-refresh the panel does not auto-refresh to page 1. The dashboard refreshes and stays on the page that you had selected.
This is different from previous versions of Splunk where an auto-refresh would refresh to page 1.
This is an expected behavior change in 6.5 to auto-refresh to the selected page of a dashboard.
If you would like to have similar behavior to previous versions, you can make the following setting changes:
< refresh>30s< /refresh>
< refreshType>delay< /refreshType>
< option name="refresh.display">preview< /option>
or make the following change in the GUI for the Dashboard:
Edit Search -> Change Refresh Indicator to "Preview and progress bar"
