Part 1 Getting started with the Splunk Dashboard Studio tutorial
When you want to create a dashboard in Splunk Dashboard Studio, it's good practice to sketch out your dashboard before you begin building. Planning out your dashboard helps to organize your ideas and direct your design process. You can use the following image as a reference for this tutorial while building the Buttercup Games dashboard.

If you do not configure the field lookups, the searches in the Dashboard Studio tutorial will not produce the correct results.
