Display static text in splunk dashbaord

Path Finder

Hi,

I've below dashboard xml that I'm using for my project:

<view autoCancelInterval="90" isVisible="true" objectMode="SimpleDashboard" onunloadCancelJobs="true" refresh="-1" template="dashboard.html">
  <label>test Dashboard - Contact: <a href="mailto:james_clinton@abc.com">James</a></label>
  <module name="AccountBar" layoutPanel="appHeader"/>
  <module name="AppBar" layoutPanel="navigationHeader"/>
  <module name="Message" layoutPanel="messaging">
    <param name="filter">*</param>
    <param name="clearOnJobDispatch">False</param>
    <param name="maxSize">1</param>
  </module>
  <module name="TitleBar" layoutPanel="viewHeader">
  <param name="actionsMenuFilter">dashboard</param>
  </module>

 <module name="HiddenSearch" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1" group="test555" autoRun="True">
<module name="TimeRangePicker">
  <param name="searchWhenChanged">True</param>
  <param name="selected">Last 24 hours</param>
  <module name="HiddenSavedSearch" autoRun="True">
    <param name="savedSearch">my_test</param>
    <module name="HiddenChartFormatter">
      <param name="chart">column</param>
      <param name="primaryAxisTitle.text">Time</param>
      <module name="FlashChart">
        <module name="ConvertToDrilldownSearch">
          <module name="ViewRedirector">
            <param name="viewTarget">flashtimeline</param>
          </module>
        </module>
      </module>
    </module>
  </module>
</module>  
</module>
</view>

I want to display static text in this dashboard say "Contact: James Clinton" in the right side or near the dashboard title. How can I do that?

I tried using

   <label>test Dashboard - Contact: <a href="mailto:james_clinton@abc.com">James</a></label>

But its not allowing me to save the XML & complains that the syntax is not valid. Can any one tell me how to put static text in the right side or left side on top?

Thanks

Ok...I was able to add text below titlebar using following code:

  <module name="TitleBar" layoutPanel="viewHeader">
     <param name="actionsMenuFilter">dashboard</param>
  </module>

 <module name="StaticContentSample" layoutPanel="viewHeader">
    <param name="text"><![CDATA[
    Contact: <a href="mailto:abc@abc.com">James</a>
   ]]></param>
 </module>

But this contact info gets added below title bar. Is there any way to add this contact info on the same line as titlebar to the very right side???

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks!

I looked at above url & tried adding below lines in my dashboard:

<module name="StaticContentSample" layoutpanel="mainSearchControls"> 
   <param name="text"><![CDATA[ <b>Title</b> ]]></param> 
</module>

But when I tried to save the xml, its giving error:

Exception: Splunk cannot load the specified view because a layoutPanel is not defined for module StaticContentSample_0_0_0

Any clue?

Thanks!

I think you can refer to other answer as bellow. You can put static html content in advanced dashboard view. Hope this help.
