Scheduling the PDF delivery of a dashboard

Getting Operational Intelligence to users who need it the most can be challenging. They can be users who are not IT savvy, don't have the correct access to the right systems, or are executives about to walk into a client meeting to go over the latest results data.

Sometimes, all a user needs is to have data emailed to their inbox every morning so that they can review it on their commute to the office or have an assistant prepare for a morning briefing. Splunk allows the user to schedule a dashboard so that it can be delivered as a PDF document via email to a customizable list of recipients.

This recipe will show you how to schedule the delivery of a dashboard within the Operational Intelligence application as a PDF document to an internal email distribution list.
