Download a dashboard

You can download a dashboard as a PDF or PNG in View mode by clicking the Actions dropdown in the menu bar and selecting a format. A dashboard downloaded in either format displays the entire dashboard as one image.


  • Your download does not render or only partially renders.
    • Make sure your searches have finished. If you try to download a dashboard while searches are still running, you'll see a confirmation message. If you continue to download the dashboard, it might not render completely.
    • Visualizations that depend on real-time searches will result in the same confirmation message as those searches that are still running. These visualizations will render depending on the search results when the dashboard downloads.
  • Your visualization panels are empty.
    • Any visualizations that depend on data sources that return no data will appear empty.
    • Images that come from an external URL will not render. To ensure these images render, save them to a local directory and upload them to your dashboard.
  • Your PNG or PDF is truncating chart labels.
    • Your canvas might be too large. Try changing the canvas to a smaller size in the Configuration panel. For more details about canvas size in different layouts, see Compare absolute and grid layouts.
