I am currently looking for and want to evaluate various js charts into Splunk. I need suggestion what would be the best JS libraries to easily integrate with Splunk without much development efforts ? Also, I need to know what JD charts are licensed and which once are free, so that I can budget the requirements accordingly.
@pgadhari if you want to integrate something without coding JS and XML then you should search for Custom Visualizations that have already been built on Splunkbase: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/apps/#/search/Custom%20visualization/
If you can code JS and XML you can import D3, Highcharts and other JS libraries as Custom Visualizations using Splunk Custom Visualization API
Do let us know which custom visualization are you looking for.
@niketnilay - I have gone through most of the custom visualizations on Splunk base, but some of them only are applicable to my use cases so far. But, I am planning to show some advanced visualizations for the dashboards, so was thinking that whether I should go for licensed versions of Highcharts ?. I know :
I can learn the JS and XML to further integrate above libraries, but I want to know which library to go for or buying licensed version will provide me support from highcharts for Splunk integration stuff ? Please advise ?
You can create custom visualisations using any chart library you like. Splunk has some good examples for how to do this for example here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/AdvancedDev/CustomVizTutorial
Maybe try ask another question asking more specifically about exactly you are trying to achieve. The user group here will probably be able to suggest good options to you.
All the best 🙂
I needed to sharpen my visualisation skills anyway, so I created an app for you. See screenshots and example usage here: https://github.com/ChrisYounger/semicircle_donut you can download the app from here: https://github.com/ChrisYounger/semicircle_donut/releases
I have submitted it to Splunkbase for approval so hopefully it will be approved on Monday.
Hope you find it helpful.
@chrisyoungerjds - The semicircle_donut app is working fine. But I cannot do the drilldown on that ? How can we enable the drilldown option in it ?
Hmm I'll need to look into that for you. Ill try add the functionality in the next couple of days.
Sure thanks. But appreciate - if it can be done early.
Also can you let me know the steps you did for integrating that semicircle_donut into Splunk ? I am also trying to integrate some of the charts.js into Splunk.
