Synthetic Dashboards



When you create a Synthetic test, Datadog collects data and generates dashboards about your stack, browser applications, or overall tests’ performance, private locations, and events.

Access your Synthetic dashboards by filtering for Synthetics in the search query of the Dashboard List or by clicking on the dropdown menu under Dashboards on the Synthetic Monitoring & Continuous Testing page.

Customize your Synthetic dashboards

You can clone dashboards and customize them by team, environment, or region using template variables. You can also customize your view and create a saved view of your cloned dashboard.

Edit template variables

The generated Synthetic dashboards automatically contain a set of default template variables. Use the template variable dropdown menus to narrow the data shown in the dashboard. For example, you can filter for a specific browser type with the Browser template variable. For more information, see the Template Variables documentation. To clone your Synthetic dashboard, click the Clone button next to the Configure icon.
