Hello,

I am an absolute newbie with Splunk and have built a dashboard but I would like to link to other dashboards. I have pasted the module into the xml, however, I do not see the text Link to my other dashboard.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Are you using Splunk 6.x?

I did something similar using an HTML panel. It utilizes the available Splunk css for styling the buttons in addition to some inline styling to make some tweaks:

    <row>
        <panel>
            <html>
                <style>.btn-primary { margin: 5px 10px 5px 0; }</style>
                <a href="name_of_dashboard" class="btn btn-primary">Link to other dashboard</a>
            </html>
        </panel>
    </row>

Hello,
Is it possible within the above html snippet to add a command that will open the other dashboard in a new window/tab? I would like to keep the original dashboard open at all times and would love it if I can make it so that the other dashboard opens in a new window.

thank you!

Absolutely! Just add the target to the <a> tag:


<a target="_blank" href="name_of_dashboard">Link to other dashboard</a>

Yes, you can include token values in the url. Just make sure to wrap it in "$" symbols. It would look something like this:

<a target="_blank" href="my_dashboard?form.dropdown=$mytoken$">My Dashboard</a>

hmm, I guess my mileage is varied... it complained about the and the class= . . .

I vote, keep it simple, this worked:

<html>
  <a href="mailto:me@myschool.edu">Email Splunk Admin about a broken widget</a>
</html>
