Dashboards & Visualizations

How to pass alert arguments from a gauge visualization to a gauge in another dashboard?

Hello,

I have an alert (count transaction time>x) in a gauge visualization and many clients.
So I've created dashboard in which I'd like to group those clients - depending on acceptable threshold. Under group gauge, there is a link to that group dashboard, where there is another set of gauges per client.

I am asking for help to pass arguments (or just signal) from client gauge to the group gauge, so I'd first see that specified group has a problem (and on what scale), and after going to that group dashboard, I'd see which client exactly.

Thanks,
- F.

Hi @Fleshwriter,
You might want to look into using tokens to capture and pass data between visualizations in a dashboard. Here is some documentation:

You can also check out the Dashboard Examples App to get some ideas on dynamic dashboards and token usage:

Hope this helps!

@frobinson_splunk This is in 95% what i was looking for, but i have some trouble. Is it possible to have dynamic drilldown under button/checkbox click in simple XML (since gauge does not support drilldown)? I suppose that is the only way to have dashboard full of gauge.
