    Has things changed for the capability of customized widgets in APM 10.3 ?


    I am looking for the capability where a widget can trigger a RESTAPI call or so with information extracted from the dashboard.


    ex. information as = hostname, agent name, time, etc.


    Is there any possible workarounds or methods possible , ex via javascripts or so?


    Are there any documentations to extending the existing widget code as "String Viewer" or  "Text Viewer" widgets?

    The old plugin to allow a custom webpage to be displayed on dashboard is outdated and would not likely work with APM 10 WebView.


    The better option is to pull data from APM using the RESTful interface or CLW to Splunk. One of our presales folks wrote a solution to pull info into Splunk.


    If using the RESTful API is too complicated, we also have the Easy Integration Kit that makes extracting data as easy as using Excel's import data option.


    APM can also send SNMP traps to Splunk using the same alert notification used for SOI/catalyst.
