Dashboards & Visualizations

How to create a new dashboard via the command line interface (CLI)?

Path Finder

Hi,

I have the below requirements to implement:

1 - I have a dashboard with some filters
2 - I set the value in the filter
3 - Click on a button to create a new dashboard clone of first dashboard with filters filled with value of step 2

Have you any ideas how to implement this?

Thanks,
Nello

You could look at the multiplexer capability of the SideView Utils:

You would have to write a python script that will copy the dashboard xml file while changing the desired default values within the xml.
Then you can implement the python script as a splunk custom command, and use that in the first dashboard.
