Create and manage dashboard groups 🔗

This topic shows you how to create dashboard groups and manage permission settings for your dashboard groups.

Create a dashboard group 🔗

You can create a custom dashboard group for other people in your organization to have easy access to the dashboards in the group. You can create a dashboard group when you are saving a dashboard, or you can create a group from scratch.

To create a dashboard group from scratch, take the following steps:

  1. Select Dashboard Group from the Create menu on the navigation bar.

  2. Enter a name and (optionally) a description of the group.

  3. Set write permissions if needed, then click Create. To learn more, see Write permissions.

  4. After that, you land on a dashboard with the same name as the group. You can rename the dashboard from the dashboard’s Actions menu, or just begin adding charts to the group.

For more information on creating charts, see Create simple charts using Splunk Observability Cloud and Create charts in Splunk Observability Cloud.

Set permissions for dashboards and groups 🔗


Available in Enterprise Edition


To protect dashboards and dashboard groups from being edited or deleted by other members of your organization, you can specify which users and/or teams have permissions for them. For more information, see Write permissions.
