Prevent Dashboard Source XML from being Displayed on Front End

Contributor

I've noticed that some of my dynamic dashboards are displaying the source XML directly on the front end. The dashboard works exactly as I expect it to, but I see a "Description" panel that displays the entire XML of the page.

I don't want people using this dashboard to see the source XML. Is there a way I can prevent it from showing up? It's also inconsistent; I don't see the XML on other dynamic dashboards.

I'm guessing you have reused some of the code from the Splunk 6.x Dashboard Examples App which does include a SourceViewer in JavaScript. Make sure you're not importing that into your dashboards and the description/source panel should disappear.

If you copied over the entire JS from the examples app then there must have been a reason to need it... so check what that reason was before deleting stuff.

Deleting the folder on its own is not a good idea, it'll be referenced somewhere - my guess is dashboard.js if you also copied that from the examples app.

Yeah, I definitely see the javascript in the apps static content. Do I just need to remove the "srcviewer" folder from there, then restart the app? Or is there some configuration file I should change?
