Dashboards & Visualizations

Does Splunk support .GIF files in their dashboard system?

Explorer

I would like to have some animation on the dashboard screens with the use of a .gif file. Does Splunk Cloud support .gif files for their dashboard App?

I haven't tried it, but you should be able to put the .gif file in an HTML panel in the dashboard.

Based on my testing on v7.2.8, I found the following types to render: GIF (even animated GIF), JPG, PNG, and SVG.
Here's the code I used to throw together a test. Because my local instance is down at the moment, and there's no uploader for static files to our work instance, I referenced an outside web server. However, everything did render.

  <row>
    <panel>
      <html>
            <ul>
              <li>GIF <img src="https://full/path/to/myfile.gif" height="454" width="114"/>
              </li>
              <li>SVG <img src="https://full/path/to/myfile.svg" height="16" width="16"/>
              </li>
              <li>JPG <img src="https://full/path/to/myfile.jpg" height="500" width="100"/>
              </li>
              <li>PNG <img src="https://full/path/to/myfile.png" height="200" width="200"/>
              </li>
            </ul>
      </html>
    </panel>
  </row>

Thanks!

Seems to work. Added a URL to the .gif file and it does work.
