Data sources in the Data panel in the Analytics Workspace

In the Data panel, you can search or browse for the data source that you want to view in a chart in the main panel of the Analytics Workspace. Filter on metrics data sources to narrow down the data sources that you want to use.

Filter on metrics data sources

To more easily find the data source that you want, click +Add new filter to filter the available data sources. You can filter by different fields and field values, such as by index or host.

For example, first select one or more metric indexes you want to use to filter. Then, select the specific metric and add the chart to your workspace. The chart header shows your filter selections.

Filter on metrics data source indexes by time range

By default, the number of metrics you can see in the data panel is based on the data ingested in the last 15 minutes. For a metric to show in the data panel, the metric must occur at least once within the set time range and the index must have ingested data for that metric within the same time range.

To change the time range for the data panel metrics click on the Last 15 minutes link at the bottom of the data panel, and select a predefined relative time range or set a custom time range using the time range picker. The time range selected here will not affect the global time range for the workspace.
