Shared Graphs and Screenboards allow you to display metric, trace, and log visualizations outside of Datadog while being able to apply access restriction to your Embeds.
Note: The Share functionality is not available for APM and Log queries.
Share a Screenboard entirely with the following process:
Note: If you’ve enabled Templating, the template variable drop down isn’t present in the shared views and widgets based of APM and Log queries won’t display any data.
You can restrict access on a per-IP address basis to your Embed. Email the Datadog support team to enable the IP address white listing feature that allows administrators to provide a list of IP addresses that have access to shared dashboards.
These shared graphs can be embedded in external-facing tools using the provided iframe as well as shared directly using the source URL provided in the text box. This can be used externally without additional authorization required for access. Once enabled, manage your restrictions on your organisation security page.
Note: If you have enabled Dashboard Template Variables, the template variable drop-downs will not be present in the shared views. We advise to avoid using these if you intend on sharing the views outside of your organization.
