Selectors

A Selector is a user-defined filter for quickly filtering metrics in Dashboard charts and meters.

  • Multiple Selectors can be set for a Dashboard.
  • Selectors can be further refined by adding a Dependency Group. which exclude values that are not required.
  • Only charts and meters which include the Selector in the expression are filtered.

SELECTOR OPERATORS

Selector RegEx uses the following operators:

.* Any string, length 0 to entire string
? Any single character
| OR between multiple expressions
& AND between multiple expressions
~ NOT on the encapsulated expression following the ~
() Encapsulated expressions

EXAMPLES

USING SELECTORS TO FILTERS CHARTS OR METERS

To filter a chart or meter using a Selector:

  1. Create a Selector. [See Creating a Selector]
  2. Add the Selector to an Expression. [See Adding a Selector to an Expression]
  3. Use the Selector to filter Dashboard tiles. [See Viewing Dashboard Tiles - Filtering Dashboard Tiles by Selectors]

Note: Changing the value of a Selector updates all charts that use the Selector.
