Upgrade to the Splunk Dashboard Framework to improve performance

Upgrading Splunk Enterprise Security dashboards from simple XML to the Splunk Dashboard Framework helps to improve performance and consistency across products so that you can gather better insights from your data visualizations. If your dashboards have a local override, you must perform the following steps to upgrade Splunk Enterprise Security simple XML dashboards and get the latest dashboard experience:

Following instructions only apply to on-prem deployments. If you are on the Splunk Cloud Platform, file a ticket on the Splunk Support Portal and request help to delete the local copies of the dashboard. See [https://splunkcommunities.force.com/customers/home/home.jsp Support and Services].

  1. Identify the XML file name from the dashboard URL.
    For example: For the Security Posture dashboard ess_security_posture, the filename is ess_security_posture.xml.
  2. Connect to the secure shell (SSH) server that hosts Splunk Enterprise Security.
  3. Change to Splunk's install directory.
    For example: cd /opt/splunk
  4. Locate the local copy of the dashboard's XML definition file, which overrides the definition from the default folder.
    For example: find . -name ess_security_posture.xml
  5. Delete the XML definition file from the local directory.
  6. Refresh the web browser for your Splunk instance.
    For example: https://localhost:8000/en-US/debug/refresh, where https://localhost:8000 is the Splunk instance.
  7. Clear your browser cache to display the new version of the dashboard.
