The markdown visualization enables you to create a rich text visualization that can be used to provide additional context to dashboards.
It accepts GitHub-flavored Markdown and renders the markdown to a dashboard as indicated by the syntax.
To add text to the markdown visualization, simply enter the markdown text into the Data tab on the right-hand side of the screen. Basic markdown syntax and elements can be seen in the image above.
If you wish to embed metric or other field values, we recommend you use the Markdown option within the Time Series Builder.
Markdown supports two display options:
- Base font size in points: Changes the base font size (default is 12) using the slider.
- Open links in new tab: Set whether links embedded in the markdown visualization open a browser tab when clicked on (default is off).
