Email PDF report of a dashboard

Hello guys,

I am trying to create a "Scheduled PDF Report of a dashboard ". Currently running a two-panel dashboard and when I schedule a report no PDF is received :
"Scheduled view delivery.

A PDF snapshot has been generated for the view: ....
"
However if I remove one panel, the PDF report is attached to the email.

Both panels run 24h searches, timechart span=10m so they generate together roughly 300 rows of results. If I generate the report manually, it works fine. What could be the problem ?

Thanks in advance,

So, the problem was, that I first used an inline search (doesn't work) , then scheduled single panel reports (doesn't work)

If you setup a dashboard made of predefined reports, and perform a "schedule pdf delivery" for the whole dashboard, then it works like a charm, sending a PDF with charts of every panel on the needed dashboard.

Kind regards,

ok, that's the "workaround". But it looks like a bug to me? Any splunker to shed some light on this behavior?

I am not sure it matters, I tested, no luck yet.
I'll do some more testing and ask further.
Thanks
🙂

Are you keeping both the panels in same row?
