Dashboards & Visualizations

Is there an option to set global/default panel options for an entire dashboard in Simple XML?

Contributor

So this is a bit puzzling, There doesn't seem to be an option to set default panel options for the entire dashboard?

for e.g. charting.legend.placement to be set to bottom for all charts
or hide the refresh time in all panels.

Just options to set default searchset & post process it.

Hi @stanwin,
Have you tried customizing CSS or JS on an app-wide basis? There is an option to update the dashboard.css or dashboard.js files for an entire app, meaning that their settings and behavior would apply to all dashboards in that app.
See:
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.5/Viz/CustomizeSimpleXML

I hope this helps! If not, please let me know and we can keep discussing.

Right yes thanks frobinson for the quick reply!

I was aware of the possibilities of using that. Its just that it would necessitate a Splunkweb restart for css route..

Adding a global default stanza for simple xml like below would be great for those quick configs.
