Exploring your data using filtersedit

You can apply filters to your dashboard to hone in on the data that you are most interested in. The dashboard is interactive—you can quickly create filters by clicking on the desired data in the map and visualizations. The panels are linked, so that when you apply a filter in one panel, the filter is applied to all panels on the dashboard.

  1. In the [Logs] Visitors by OS visualization, click on the osx pie slice.

    Both the visualizations and map are filtered to only show documents where machine.os.keyword is osx. The machine.os.keyword: osx filter appears in the dashboard query bar.

  2. Click the x to remove the machine.os.keyword: osx filter.
  3. In the map, click in the United States vector.
  4. Click plus maps/images/gs_plus_icon.png to the right of iso2 row in the tooltip.

    Both the visualizations and the map are filtered to only show documents where geo.src is US. The geo.src: US filter appears in the dashboard query bar.

    Your dashboard should look like this:
