Add a dashboard panel from a search

To visualize your data, you first need to execute a search. Splunk software provides visualizations that together suit all types of data. In this scenario, search for all processes that are running under the root user.

  1. Click Search in the Splunk Light bar.
  2. Type the following into the search bar.

    sourcetype=ps user=root

    You now see all processes that are running under the root user.
  3. Click Save As.
  4. Click Dashboard Panel.
  5. Add your list of events to your existing dashboard.
  6. Name your panel Processes running under the root user.
  7. Click Save.
  8. To view your changes, click View Dashboard.

Your dashboard now contains three panels: two prebuilt panels, and one powered by an inline search.
