The dashboard drilldown allows you to navigate from one dashboard to another dashboard. For example, you might have a dashboard that shows the overall status of multiple data centers. You can create a drilldown that navigates from this dashboard to a dashboard that shows a single data center or server.
This example shows a dashboard panel that contains a pie chart with a configured dashboard drilldown:
The following panels support dashboard drilldowns:
- Data table
- Heat map
- Horizontal bar
- Tag cloud
- Vertical bar
