Color table cells in scheduled PDF delivery

Contributor

I know I can add javascript to a dashboard to color table cells based on each cell's value. When I download the PDF, however, the cell's color is obviously removed. I was wondering if there is a way to schedule a PDF delivery of this dashboard that preserves the table cell colors.

Does anyone know of a solution for this?

a/look at this app : https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4030/
if it does not fit your need :

One workaround is to use a css for printing, using very thick borders :
example of css :

@media print {
td.range-severe {
box-shadow: inset 0 0 0 1000px darkred !important;
color: #eee !important;
-webkit-print-color-adjust: exact !important;
}
}

working example with this app, containing the js and css, and a dashboard : https://github.com/simondev65/tableprintpdf
look for the dashboard inside, export to pdf using your browser : print->pdf. (not the export to pdf within splunk).

After over 2 years is splunk still not going to provide a working solution for this?

I supposed that if you use format in simple XML you should achieve what you are looking for:

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/latest/Viz/TableFormatsXML

But the reality is that this does not work, despite of the fact that the documentation talks about all the simpleXML parameteres printed in pdf......

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.6.0/Viz/DashboardPDFs

"You cannot generate PDFs of dashboards that are built using advanced XML or HTML. PDF generation works only with dashboards built with simple XML."
