Is it possible to change or completely remove the menuing/header system from above the charts/graphs on a view? (or all of them)
I am at a customer who is looking to use their own menuing system and include Splunk in it - using their own menus to link directly to the desired view/dashboard. Please let me know how I can change/remove everything with the black background at the top of a Splunk page.
all the appearances in Splunk are manageable by CSS. You have to create a customized yourfile.css that will override default configurations. Maybe could be useful for you the following doc http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/4.1.3/Developer/UseCSS
Thanks - shutting off visibility in CSS would be one option, but I am also interested in how to put in custom custom menu HTML/JS code in the headers as well.
You can quite easily create a custom view (or edit the existing views) in Advanced XML. As a very simple example, this:
<view template="dashboard.html" onunloadCancelJobs="False" autoCancelInterval="100"> <!-- autoCancelInterval is set here to 100 --> <label>Chart</label> <module name="Message" layoutPanel="messaging"> <param name="filter">*</param> <param name="clearOnJobDispatch">False</param> <param name="maxSize">3</param> </module> <module name="HiddenSearch"> <param name="search">* | head 100 | chart count by source</param> <module name="FlashChart" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1"> <param name="width">100%</param> <param name="height">100%</param> </module> </module> </view>
displays just a chart (and error messages).
It wouldnt be that bad to put another dropdown menu system in there. the ServerSideInclude module plus etc/apps/APPNAME/appserver/static/application.js can take you a long way.
