Sharing a dashboard on an indexer with a search head

Path Finder

I have several dashboards and views created on an indexer (this was done before configuring distributed search). I have now set up distributed search and added a search head. Is it possible to see all these dashboards from the search head without having to create them again?

Hi Daniel,
There's probably a better way to do this, but:

  1. Give all of the apps, saved searches, lookups, and dashboards you made on the Indexer "App" permissions.
  2. Make a copy of all the apps in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/ on the Indexer (these will contain all of your backups)
  3. Copy them to the new Search Head (See NOTE)

NOTE: This will overwrite any app configuration of identically named apps on the Search Head, so I'd make a copy of them first.

I hope this helps 🙂

Hey thanks for the answer 🙂 I thought about this as well, but isn't there any way though to somehow make the dashboards visible to the search head without any copying and pasting, keeping them on the indexer?
