Dashboards & Visualizations

Is there a way to remove the "Open in Search, Inspect, and Export" options from the bottom of the dashboard?

Hi folks,

I want to remove these so management doesn't start clicking on them and asking me a million questions. I just want them to see the dashboards, no drill down, and no search/export/inspect. I can't seem to find the option that removes these, and I am almost sure I've seen it before.

Thanks!

Joe

@nidhigoyal is correct. Using "link.visible" should disable all links at the bottom of the panel, where you also have the ability to disable individually if you need.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.4/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML

Use the syntax shown below within each panel element:

<!-- disable all panel links -->
<option name="link.visible">false</option>

<!-- selectively disable each of the links -->
<option name="refresh.link.visible">false</option>
<option name="link.openSearch.visible">false</option>
<option name="link.openPivot.visible">false</option>
<option name="link.inspectSearch.visible">false</option>
<option name="link.exportResults.visible">false</option>

You could also completely hide the whole grey panel footer and sliding size bar with this bit of css.

.dashboard-row .dashboard-panel .ui-resizable-handle{
   display: none !important;
}
.dashboard-row .dashboard-panel .dashboard-element .panel-footer {
   display: none;
}

The export button will not work if you are using a post-processing search, so if you are trying to enable it and it's not working that might be why.

See https://answers.splunk.com/answers/550070/why-export-button-is-grayed-out-in-some-of-my-pane.html.

Is it possible to do this per user/role?
We want some users to have the export feature but not for others

@cbhattad
Take a look at my post here.
https://answers.splunk.com/answers/793588/is-it-possible-to-assign-a-token-value-to-a-user-o.html

While it doesn't directly answer your question, you should be able to use the same logic to assign a token value of "false" or "true" to the
<option name="link.visible">$tok_Vis$</option> to obtain your required result.

Note, however, that even though search, and therefore the SPL that runs it, is not available, a savy user could right-click and view page source on the webpage. They could then filter through the
source and pick out your search code.

Hope this helps.
Thanks and God bless,
Genesius

The above suggestion was working for version 6.1;

However, "Open in search", "inspect" and "export" options cannot be removed from splunk enterprise 6.3 version as suggested above. Can someone confirm?

According to the docs for 6.3 it should still work the same.
