We are running Splunk version 6.0 , so far I am making dashboard in simple XML but I don't want mind learning Advanced XML if they are the way to go.
I assume that you are running Splunk 6.1, and if so, you can use the following to satisfy your use case here:
Neither of these 2 functions are available in the viz editor, so you will need to edit your Simple XML directly from the xml editor.
It should look something like this:
<dashboard> <label>Single Panel Dashboard</label> <description/> <searchTemplate>index=_internal | top sourcetype</searchTemplate> <earliestTime>-60m</earliestTime> <latestTime>now</latestTime> <row> <panel> <chart> <title>myChart</title> </chart> <table> <title>myTable</title> </table> </panel> </row> </dashboard>
