Visualization support for the Connected Experiences apps

These are the current supported and unsupported dashboard visualizations and features for the Connected Experiences apps and the latest version of Splunk Cloud Gateway. If your dashboard isn't loading, it may contain an unsupported visualization or you might be using an outdated Splunk Cloud Gateway version.

To check if a dashboard contains any visualizations or configurations that the Connected Experiences apps don't support, see Editing Simple XML in the Splunk Enterprise Dashboards and Visualizations manual.

Supported and unsupported dashboard and visualization and configurations

Keep in mind the following when creating dashboards and visualizations for the Connected Experiences apps:

  • Visualizations with more than 3,000 data points take a long time to load. To load visualizations faster, you can increase the sample ratio to adjust the number of data points. See Specify a sampling ratio in the Splunk Enterprise Search Manual for more information.
  • Dashboards in the Connected Experiences apps display one title. If your dashboard has both an object title and a panel title, the dashboard displays the object title.
  • By default, Splunk Enterprise displays visualizations in panels. Visualizations must have the panel tag in order to display in the Connected Experiences apps. If you remove the panel tag from the dashboard XML, the visualization will not display in the Connected Experiences apps.
  • The Connected Experiences apps don't support HTML elements.

The following table lists the supported visualizations and the supported and unsupported configurations for each visualization for the Connected Experiences apps:
