How can we create interactive dashboards for each user with Dashboard Studio ?


Hi All, 

We'd like to build interactive behaviors with our dashboards in dashboard studio.
For example, we would like to achieve the following, 
- Change or hide the contents of the dashboard according to the logged-in user's information (e.g., email address)
- Set the result of a configured SPL to a given token when the dashboard is loaded

We used to accomplish it using tokens with dashboard classic, however we cannnot find the way with dashboard studio.

It would be very helpful of you to shed some lights on these:

1. We 'd like to change searches in dashboard  depending on the login user. (by using tokens)
How and where can we set tokens?
In addition to that, is it possible to hide a panel in dashboard studio?

2. We'd like to change the values of "pulldown" input depending on the login user.  (by using tokens)
We used to do this by customizing search strings with tokens. 
Is it possible to achieve this in dashboard studio?

Hey @novaty,

For your first question, yes you can change the searches based on the user selected from the input and token can be set for the input. However, you will not be able to hide/unhide panels using the same. Dashboard Studio does not support it. Below is the detailed difference between the Classic Studio and the Dashboard Studio in terms of data - https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.5/DashStudio/IntroFrame#:~:text=all%20other%20setti... 

If you want a reference on how to make your dashboard dynamic by using tokens, please find the below doc - https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.5/DashStudio/inputs 

If you find the answer helpful, an upvote/karma is appreciated
