Customize dashboard styling and behavior
Customize dashboard appearance and behavior using custom
.js files. You can customize a specific dashboard within an app or all dashboards in a particular app.
Customize styling and behavior for one dashboard
Create custom files
To customize a specific dashboard, start by creating one or more
.js files to define styling and behavior.
Depending on the app to which the dashboard belongs, place these files in the app's
appserver/static directory, located here.
For example, to customize styling and behavior for a dashboard in Search and Reporting, use this directory path.
Add custom files to the dashboard
When custom files are in the app's
appserver/static directory, add them to the dashboard. Use the following syntax.
<dashboard stylesheet="<style_filename>.css" script="<script_filename>.js">
You can use several custom files for a dashboard. For multiple
.js files, use the following syntax.
<dashboard stylesheet="<style_filename1>.css, <style_filename2>.css" script="<script_filename1>.js, <script_filename2>.js">
Note: Forms have the
<form> root element in Simple XML instead of
<form stylesheet="..."> if you are adding a custom file to a form.
Add custom files from a different app to a dashboard
You can add custom files from one app's
appserver/static directory to another app's dashboard. Use this syntax to indicate the other app context for custom files.
<dashboard stylesheet="<app_name>:<style_filename>.css" script="<app_name>:<script_filename>.js">
For example, to refer to files located in the Search and Reporting app context, use this syntax.
<dashboard stylesheet="search:my_custom_styles.css" script="search:my_custom_script.js">
Note: Ensure that custom files exist in the indicated app's
appserver/static directory. Dependency checking and warning messages are not supported when files are not found.
Customize styling and behavior for all dashboards in an app
Dashboards automatically load
dashboard.css from the
appserver/static directory. To customize styling and behavior for all dashboards in an app, create one or both of the following files.
Place the files in the following directory.
