You can share a dashboard for a certain period by generating a URL with an expiry date. When other users access the URL, they can see a read-only view of the dashboard without logging in to VMware Aria Operations for Logs. If you apply filters to the dashboard, users see the filtered content.

You can provide unauthenticated access to a custom dashboard or a content pack dashboard.


Verify that you are logged in to the VMware Aria Operations for Logs web user interface as a user associated with the User role, or a role that has the relevant permissions. For more information, see Create and Modify Roles in Administering VMware Aria Operations for Logs. The URL format of the web user interface is https://operations_for_logs-host, where operations_for_logs-host is the IP address or host name of the VMware Aria Operations for Logs virtual appliance.
