Pause a Panel

Because Panels display real time data, the data displayed is constantly updating. If you'd like to view static data, you can pause a Panel when it's zoomed to temporarily disable auto updates. Pausing a panel stops the search in a Live Dashboard, and re-enables auto updates when you press Play again.

To pause a Panel:

  1. On the Dashboards page, click the Edit toggle.
  2. Hover over the name of a Panel, then click the Zoom icon:

  2. When you're ready to re-enable auto updates, click the Pause icon again. When the Play icon displays, auto updates have been re-enabled:
