Hi,

I'm trying to filter our dashboard by each host or including all hosts.
We have many field(chart) in a dashboard. And When we filter i expect all fields are changed.

We have two hosts for Europe and Asia in our data.
In the end we want to have 3 options. which means all host, Europe host and Asia host.

I tried to like this

alt text

but the results from all three filters are same.

Can somebody handle this problem?
Thanks for any help!

try using ...your search|dedup host|fields host
That should give you options to just display the individual host names.

You can add a default option for "All Hosts" and set that to *
However - this is probably not the best approach, but you may need to explain a bit more to help us find the best solution

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

have you used the token from the dropdown in your search?

Take a look at this document which shows how you can use static and dynamic form fields with dashboards
