Dashboards in the Analytics Workspace

Dashboards are saved views that consist of one or more panels. Use dashboards to monitor real-time trends in your data or to share visualizations with your colleagues. Save one or more charts in the Analytics Workspace to new or existing dashboards.

Not all chart types and features are available in dashboards:

  • You cannot save alert charts to a dashboard.
  • Reference lines do not appear on charts in dashboards.
  • Heatmap charts are converted to column charts when you save them to a dashboard.

For more information about dashboards in the Splunk platform, see the Dashboard overview in the Dashboards and Visualizations Manual.
