How to get today's date to display on top of a dashboard?

Path Finder

Hi,

Can someone suggest how we can get today's date to display on top of the dashboard?

Format should be like this below:

"date is updated as of Today(todays date)"

Thanks.

This may depend on your data, but can you put a Visualization Panel in your Dashboard that simply displays a single value?

Then you could run a search for the most recent event and set the Visualization type to "Single Value"

So if your search was the following:

| eval Date = strftime(_time,"%m/%d/%Y %I:%M:%S %p") | eval text = "date is updated as of Today(".Date.")"| table text

All you would display in that specific panel was something like date is updated as of Today(06/29/2016 02:53:28 PM)

I am not looking this to display for a specific panel, looking to get this for my entire dashboard below "Title"

What date specifically do you want to be displayed at the top of the panel? Like where would it be sourced from?

If you're trying to get this in the title of a dashboard, you may end up needing to create custom javascript code unfortunately.

You can use a singlevalue panel to display. Like this

| gentimes start=-1 | eval t="Today (".strftime(starttime, "%m/%d/%Y %I:%M:%S %p").")"
