Dashboard parameters and menus

Hi all

Is it possible to use parameters e.g. for a host to display in dashboards? There should also be menus (dropdown, checkbox etc.) to select parameters. Is this possible?
I'm used to have this and a lot more features in splunk or grafana dashboards.

Regards, Matthias

You can put host metrics directly on the dashboard as a tile. Can you please elaborate on your use case?

The Dynatrace solution is absolutely in no way as refined and easy to use as Grafana and Splunk but recently they did add something (limited as it may be).

Thanks, we already use this filters, but this is only a really small part of what I would like to use in dashboards.

One example:

We monitor a lot of metrics for all monitored hosts. I would like to implement a dashboard, where I can select a host or several hosts in a dropdown and than display some metrics in graphs and tables for the selected host. It should also be possible to use the selected values in graph (filters) or in markdown links, in headers etc. etc.

I see really many use cases to have more flexible and more generally usable dashboards. For now, the dashboards in dynatrace are still very limited to use and to configure.
