Manage dashboards that need jQuery updates
All Simple XML dashboards require a version attribute set to 1.1 to certify that they are compatible with jQuery 3.5 or higher. You must update user-created dashboards with a version attribute. 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.
Beginning with Splunk Cloud Platform 8.2.2022 and higher, only dashboards that are version 1.1 are valid. If you load a version 1.0 dashboards, Splunk Cloud Platform redirects you to view the dashboard in version 1.1. You must update all version 1.0 dashboards to version 1.1.
For a list of dashboards that might be affected by the security update that requires jQuery 3.5 or higher, Splunk admins can see the jQuery Upgrade dashboard. Dashboards that are on those lists might need to be adjusted or rebuilt.
Certify that Simple XML dashboards work with jQuery 3.5 and higher with a version attribute
Complete the following steps to update, verify, and then certify your dashboards.
- If necessary, update the dashboard to rely only on jQuery 3.5 and higher.
- Check the dashboard to verify that it's working in your Splunk instance.
- 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 it is working. Dashboards that are certified to work with the newest dashboard view don't appear in the list of v1.0 dashboards viewed in the jQuery Upgrade dashboard.
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.
