Manage and update dashboards

Admins need to manage dashboards that require updates to work with jQuery 3.5 before lower versions of jQuery are removed from the Splunk platform. In future releases, the jQuery security update might require admins to take further action to update their applications.

As an administrator of Splunk Cloud Platform and Splunk Enterprise deployments, you might need to adjust or rebuild dashboards that are affected by this security update. Use the following chart to learn how to update your different dashboards.

Type of dashboard Method to update
Simple XML dashboard without custom JavaScript Dashboards without custom JavaScript are not likely to experience errors as a result of the upgrade to jQuery 3.5. Likely no action is needed.
Simple XML dashboard with custom JavaScript Update the dashboard to rely on jQuery 3.5 only.
HTML dashboard HTML dashboards are deprecated. Rebuild them in Dashboard Studio. For more information about Dashboard Studio, see What is the Splunk Dashboard Studio? in the Splunk Dashboard Studio manual.

Beginning with Splunk Cloud Platform 8.1.2103 and Splunk Enterprise version 8.2.0, you can update your dashboards with custom Javascript to use jQuery 3.5. You can also work on rebuilding your HTML dashboards in Dashboard Studio.
