Editing Shared Dashboards

When you add or edit a panel in a shared dashboard, Sumo compares your role search filter to the search filter with which the dashboard was shared. If the search filters vary, you cannot edit the dashboard.

In Sumo, a dashboard's data access level determines what data appears in the dashboard when users with whom the dashboard was shared view it. In effect, the data access level of a dashboard controls what search role filter is applied to the dashboard:  the viewer's filter, or the filter of the user that shared the dashboard. For more  information about data access levels, see Set the Data Access Level for a Dashboard.

When you add or edit a panel in a shared dashboard, Sumo compares your role search filter to the search filter with which the dashboard was shared. If the search filters vary, Sumo displays a message like this:

Cannot Edit Dashboard Dashboard Name

To be able to edit the dashboard, you can either:

  • Make a copy of of the dashboard.
  • Change the data access level. You can either set the data access level to your own data access level, or to the viewer's.
    • If you set the data access level to your own, users with whom the dashboard is shared will see the same data that you can in the dashboard.
    • If you set the data access level to the viewer's, users with whom the dashboard is shared will only see data to which their role filter allows access.
