Dashboards & Visualizations

External link to multiple dashboards

AZ

Our scrum team used to have a single Splunk dashboard, and a link to it on our Jira board, so that the product manager could easily jump to it when he was checking on our progress.  Now I've added 6 more dashboards, but would rather not add 6 more links if I can help it.  Is there a way to link to all of them at once?  The dashboard names share a common prefix for easy filtering, but filtering doesn't affect the URL so it doesn't seem like that will help.  Can I create a dashboard that contains links to other dashboards?  Or some sort of home page that's specific to our team?

Hi @AZ,

yes, you can craete a dashboard displaying the links to the other dashboard, a kind of menu Home page.

You can do this in many ways:

  • putting the links in an html box for each link,
  • create a lookup containing the name of the dashboard to display and the link to the dashboard, then you can show the lookup in a dinamic dashboard.

I prefer the second option, because if you have do add a new dashboard or delete one of them, you can do it in the lookup instead to modify dashboard code.

Ciao.
