How to make an alert for the status of a dashboard panel?

New Member

Hi there! I am trying to make an alert that tells me when a particular dashboard panel returns >0. Does anybody know how to reference a particular dashboard panel in the alert? Furthermore, then how to reference the return number of that dashboard panel?

Dashboards are built on searches.

You don't alert on the results of the dashboard, you alert on the results of the search. (Which are the same value, but semantically, its important)

If you know the search which builds the dashboard, simply run the same search, and save it as an alert. Configure the alert to inform you as you require.


If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!
