Track to Log Views within Splunk Observability Custom Dashboards Today!

Today, Splunk Observability releases log views, a new feature for users to add their logs data from Splunk Log Observer and Log Observer Connect directly to their Observability custom dashboards - all while drawing on existing Splunk instances from a familiar, extensible data platform.

Log views combine the easy UI of Log Observer with the flexibility and power of Splunk Observability dashboards. This allows users to complete the troubleshooting journey in one place: metrics-based alerts and trends show what changed and when the problem started, and log views provide full detail of what’s happening and why. Learn more about log views!
