Dashboards & Visualizations

How to host a Splunk dashboard somewhere so that the users can see the dashboard upon clicking a link?

New Member

I am preparing to build a real-time analytics dashboard for my clients on the Business side. Is it possible that they can see the dashboard via a link and have no splunk knowledge/software beforehand?

Please help me out here, as I have only introductory knowledge in Splunk and I'll only dive deep, if there are possibilities.

You could embed a series of reports using iframes, and put those on an internal page so that it's still protected.

Same situation occurs to me, in my web browser there are some emails will be displayed when owner clicks on specific email, It has to navigate to splunk URL with email ID as filter parameter and current date filter parameter. So when he redirected to splunk he can see the only User data instead of whole data ?
please help me... thank you

There are lots of ways, but the method you should use depends primarily on what security you need and what you want them to be able to do with the dash.

If you want them to be able to dive down into the data, and you don't care about security, then you set up the dash so that it runs queries under some specific service account.

On the other hand, if they don't need to dive at all, and you need to limit what they can get to, then you might be better off sending a pdf, or sending a link to a dash that depends on a periodic scheduled search (again under a service account).
