Hi, I am using Splunk 6.4.2. I have a dashboard in simple XML . I tried to convert it into advanced XML using the techniques:
1. showsource=advanced i.e. (http://localhost:8000/en-US/app/search/my_dashboard?showsource=advanced)
2. showsource=1 i.e (http://localhost:8000/en-US/app/search/my_dashboard?showsource=1)
3. showsource=true i.e (http://localhost:8000/en-US/app/search/my_dashboard?showsource=true)
Both of these does not seem to work. No XML is generated . Rather the same old dashboard is displayed.
Is there any other way to convert simple XML to advanced XML or Is this feature is not available in Splunk version which I am using?
I know, I ran into this issue this past year with wanting to export panels that were run off of a base search so I had to recreate my dashboard through Sideview. It was a bit tedious, but that was the only work around I could find.
I did however talk with some members of the dashboard team at .conf this year, and hopefully that feature is in the pipeline now.
Advanced XML is deprecated. While you can still use dashboards written in Advanced XML, you can't create new ones.
Existing dashboards written in Advanced XML still work. We can't convert dashboards into Advanced XML anymore, however.
BTW, converting to HTML is one-way. Splunk doesn't convert HTML dashboards back into Simple XML.
