Edit dashboard properties

To rename a dashboard, change the theme, or change the URL, you must edit the dashboard properties. When you create a dashboard, you have an opportunity to specify dashboard properties. However, you can change dashboard properties at any time.

You can only change properties for one dashboard at a time. You cannot multi-select dashboards and change a property, such as the dashboard theme.

  1. Log into the Web UI on the Discover or Command appliance and click Dashboards at the top of the page.
  2. Select the dashboard that you want to edit.
  3. Click the command menu in the upper right corner of the page and then select Dashboard Properties.
  4. In the Dashboard Properties window, you can modify the following fields:
    Title
    Rename the dashboard.
    Author
    Change the author name.
    Description
    Change the dashboard description. Note that the description is only seen when editing dashboard properties.
    Permalink
    Change the URL for the dashboard. By default, the permalink, also known as a short code, is a five-character unique identifier that appears after /Dashboard in the URL. You can change the permalink to a more user-friendly name.
    Note:The permalink can have up to 100 characters combining letters, numbers, and the following symbols: dot (.), underscore (_), dash (-), plus sign (+), parentheses ( ), and brackets ([ ]). Other alphanumeric characters are unsupported. The permalink cannot contain spaces.
    Sharing
    To share a dashboard with users who can view and edit, click the link. For more information, see Share a dashboard.
    Editors
    View the list of ExtraHop users with editing access to the dashboard. To change the users, click Sharing.
    Theme
    Select one of the following themes to change the colors and appearance of the dashboard:

    Light: White background with dark text.

    Dark: Black background with white text.

    Space: Dark background with a stylized background image and text.

  5. Click Save.
