Customizing the dashboard

Each visualization in your dashboard is stored in a container; you can resize and arrange the containers in the dashboard.

Resizing, moving, and removing containers

Normally only one control (Maximize) is available on the top left of the container's frame. Clicking this maximizes the container and hides all other containers in the dashboard. Clicking the Restore control returns the visualization to its normal size and position.

To perform other operations on containers, first click Edit on the container's toolbar.

Moving - Click and hold the container’s Move control to move the container around the dashboard. Other containers will shift as needed to make room for the moving container. Release the mouse button to confirm the container’s new location.

Resizing - Move the cursor to the bottom right corner of the container until the cursor changes to point at the corner. After the cursor changes, click and drag the corner of the container to change the container’s size. Release the mouse button to confirm the new container size.

Removing - Click the x icon in the top right corner of a container to remove that container from the dashboard. Removing a container from a dashboard does not remove the saved visualization in that container.

Viewing detailed visualization information

To display the raw data behind the visualization, click the Spy Open icon at the bottom left of the container. You can select different types of detailed information by selecting an option from the dropdown menu, as in the following examples:

TableA representation of the underlying data, presented as a paginated data grid. You can sort the items in the table by clicking the table headers at the top of each column.

Visual spy request

ResponseThe raw response from the server, presented in JSON format.

StatisticsA summary of the statistics related to the request and the response, presented as a data grid. The data grid includes the query duration, the request duration, the total number of records found on the server, and the index pattern used to make the query.

To export the raw data behind the visualization as a comma-separated-values (CSV) file, click either the Raw or Formatted links at the bottom of the detailed information tabs. A raw export contains the data as it is stored in Elasticsearch. A formatted export contains the results of any applicable Siren Investigate [field formatters].
