Dashboards & Visualizations

How do you set a view in html dashboards to refresh periodically?

I've written a very simple xml dashboard with one single view on it, updating every minute. I've converted it to an html dashboard. It no longer updates every minute.

How do you set views in html dashboards to refresh periodically?

Check the visualization elements created in your HTML view and set the refersh parameter like below -


        var element1 = new TableElement({
            "id": "element1",
            "refresh.auto.interval": "60",
            "managerid": "search1",
            "el": $('#element1')
        }, {tokens: true, tokenNamespace: "submitted"}).render();

        var element2 = new TableElement({
            "id": "element2",
            "refresh.auto.interval": "120",
            "managerid": "search2",
            "el": $('#element2')
        }, {tokens: true, tokenNamespace: "submitted"}).render();

Are you on 6.5 or higher and trying to refresh Panel? Can you try dashboard refresh instead?
In the JavaScript section add the following code before DASHBOARD READY comment:


| makeresults | eval message= "Happy Splunking!!!"

Yeah, I'm on 6.5.3 and it was the panel I'd set to refresh. Is your solution going to reload the whole page as though I'd pressed f5, or is it going to go through each panel and update it? Reloading the page means the browser spends several seconds rearranging everything, it's not seemless like panel refreshes.
