Dashboards & Visualizations

How to display charts on a dashboard based on the drop-down form input?

I have a dashboard using the form with list of apps as input(ex: appA, appB, appC, appD) as the drop down list.
The form has 4 charts,(ex: chart cpu, chart memory, chart response time, chart http 5xx error count).
If the user pick appA, then display only cpu , memory and respond time charts.
if user pick appB, then display only cpu, memory and http 5xx error count.

Is there a simple way to do that (if condition(app=appA) to decide if I want to display each chart ) like regular coding . Thanks

Jim

Hi jimyliu,

you can do something like this in the Sideview module called Switcher. Install the App and open this link:

hope this helps to get you started ...

Hi,

I am able to use side view switcher. in my dashboard, I set the refresh=300 to reload the page every 5 mins. By default, the dashboard shows appA's charts. When I switched to appB's charts, after 5 mins, the the whole page refreshed, it still show appA's charts. Is there a way to let the page remembered what I have switched to after the refresh?

Thanks!
