DB Connect and Dashboards


I am new to Splunk so please bear with me. I created a dashboard inside the DB Connect app but now I cannot find it. Using version 6.

I would definitely recommend creating your own app space where you would build your dashboards. This gives you full control over the navigation and content, without affecting external apps like DB Connect that you would download and install.

After creating your own app, you can go ahead and move your dashboard from DB Connect to your app by doing the following:

  • Go to "Settings > User interface" found in the top right of the screen
  • Click "Views"
  • Set the App context to "Splunk DB Connect (dbx)"
  • Locate your dashboard
  • Click "move" action
  • Then select your app

After doing so, you should now see this dashboard in the dashboard listing page that is part of your app.


Excellent, succinct answer.
