Manage dashboards that need jQuery updates
The jQuery Upgrade dashboard lists any dashboards that might be affected by a security update that requires jQuery 3.5 or higher. Dashboards that are on these lists might need to be adjusted or rebuilt. However, do not update dashboards that are packaged with Splunk Cloud Platform, Splunk Enterprise, or a Splunk app. Dashboards associated with third party and private apps must be updated by the app developers. For more information about identifying which apps need updates, see Act on jQuery scan results with the Upgrade Readiness App.
Certify that dashboards work with jQuery 3.5 and higher
After your dashboards are fully compatible with jQuery 3.5 or higher, and you verify that they are working in the new dashboard view, you can then certify that they are updated. After you certify the dashboards, they disappear from the jQuery Upgrade dashboard. Dashboards associated with third party and private apps, however, must be updated by the app developers.
Complete the following steps to verify and then certify your dashboards.
- Check the dashboard in the new view to verify that it's working. Use the info icon to toggle between the old and new views.
- Add the
version="1.1"attribute to the root node in the Simple XML file for the dashboard. The root node is either
<dashboard version="1.1" script="myCustomJS.js"> ... </dashboard>
<form version="1.1" script="myCustomJS.js"> ... </form>
version="1.0"to the dashboard root node.
- Check the dashboard again to verify that the info icon is no longer present and that you can't open the older view. Dashboards that are certified to work with the newest dashboard view don't appear in the list of v1.0 dashboards viewed.
Update HTML dashboards
HTML dashboards are deprecated. However, you can rebuild your HTML dashboards in Dashboard Studio. For more information about Dashboard Studio, see What is the Splunk Dashboard Studio? in the Splunk Dashboard Studio manual.
