A dashboard displays a set of saved visualizations in a grid layout that you can customize. It requires at least one visualization (for more information, refer to the Visualizations section in the Siren Investigate User Guide). You can save a dashboard to share or view at a later time.

Click Dashboard (fa-home-mod.png) to view the first dashboard in the list. You can drag and drop dashboards to change the order of the list.

Add visualizations to a dashboard

Configure a container

The visualizations in your dashboard are stored in resizable containers that you can arrange on the dashboard.

To move a container around the dashboard, drag and drop the container’s header. Other containers will move as required to make room.

To resize a container, move the mouse pointer over the lower right corner of the container until the cursor changes to the resize pointer then click and drag to the required size.

To remove a container, click Remove (fa-times.png). Removing a container from a dashboard does not remove the saved visualization in that container.

Save a dashboard

  1. Click Save.

  2. (Optional) Select Store time with dashboard to change the time filter to the currently selected time each time the dashboard is loaded.

  3. (Optional) If you did not add a saved search when you created the dashboard you can do so now.

  4. Click Save.

Dashboards can be saved with specific filters, custom queries and specific time ranges. You can click Reset (fa-filter-mod.png) to reset these properties to their saved state for all dashboards.

Share a dashboard

You can share dashboards with other users by sending a link or by embedding them into HTML pages.


Ensure that your Siren Investigate installation is properly secured when sharing a dashboard on a public facing server. To view shared dashboards users must be able to access Siren Investigate; keep this in mind if your Siren Investigate instance is protected by an authentication proxy.

  1. Click Share to display the Sharing panel.

  2. Click Copy to copy the native URL or embedded HTML to the clipboard. The Share Snapshot section contains shortened versions of the URLs in the Share saved dashboard section.
