Removing 'view results' from a custom dashboard or view panel

Path Finder

I'm trying to get my dashboard to have as much info on one screen as possible. Any info on removing 'View results' link and the area below it? It would save lots of space on every panel for me.

Thanks

You can edit views by going to Manager -> User Interface -> Views and then locate your view by either searching or filtering the app.

Once there, click on the link to the view name and you will be able to edit the XML. I would save a copy in case you break anything.

From here, look for "ViewRedirectorLink" which should be what is creating those links. Remove the whole thing and test your dashboard.

Yes, that could be it. I do not believe there is a way to remove the link if you use simple xml.

You can convert any dashboard to advanced XML by the following:

  1. On the URL for the dashboard you are looking at append ?showsource=1. for example, if you dashboard is http://servername/en-us/app/myapp/mydashboard convert it to http://servername/en-us/app/myapp/mydashboard?showsource=1

  2. Now copy the XML source at the bottom of the page in the box. This is what the simple XML will look like in advanced XML.

  3. Paste the advanced XML into the view in manager and make your edits.

Inside my XML there is no such thing. I read somewhere about simple and complex XMLs, can this be the problem?
