Saved Views

Overview

When multiple teams share the same account, or when your logs have many different sources, it is critical to be able to promptly start investigating the right content. With Datadog, teams can define and share Log Explorer Views so everyone can start troubleshooting with the same predefined context.

Datadog Saved Views allow you to save search customizations in the Log Explorer, including:

Saved Views can then be selected directly in the left panel or in the search bar thanks to auto-completion, which matches on either search name or query.

By default, all facets are displayed for all users.

Each user can define their own list of default facets and facet groups to display by using the Manage Facets button and then selecting the desired facets.
