Dashboards & Visualizations

How can you share a dashboard by multiple Splunk Apps

What is the best method to share a dashboard with multiple Apps instead of coping the xml file around to each App. Is there a global App folder where it could be placed and then linked via the navigation config file? If not are there any issues with creating a directory and then soft linking the xml dashboard file to each app.

Thanks

A view, or pretty much anything else in an app, can be promoted up and out of its own little app space, to what we call the system space, such that it is shared across all apps.

How you do this is that in the top level of apps there can be a folder called metadata. In that folder create a file called default.meta and in that file, put this:

[views/your_view_name_here]
export = system

You can do a lot of other things with the metadata. Read the Developer Manual for more details. It has a section on building apps.
