Customizing dashboard elements

The visualizations in your dashboard are stored in containers that you can resize and arrange on the dashboard. This section discusses customizing these containers.

Moving containers

Click and hold a container’s header 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 containers

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 containers

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 information

To display the raw data behind the visualization, click the bar at the bottom of the container. Tabs with detailed information about the raw data replace the visualization, as in this example:

Table. A 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.

vis spy table

Request. The raw request used to query the server, presented in JSON format.

Visual spy request

Response. The raw response from the server, presented in JSON format.

Visual spy response

Statistics. A 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.

Visual spy stats

Debug. A summary of the visualization state (for example, visualization parameters and aggregations) and other details.

Visual spy debug

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].
