As part of our Custom Dashboard capabilities, Coralogix offers a Markdown Widget. Add tables, lists, reference guides, links, code snippets, images, and more to customize, contextualize, and optimize your dashboards using Markdown syntax.

Overview

Markdown is a lightweight markup language that allows users to format and structure plain text documents using a simple and intuitive syntax. By adding the Markdown Widget to your custom dashboards, you can easily add personalized context to your dashboards using straightforward symbols and conventions.

  • Bold

  • Strikethrough
  • Heading/Normal text
  • Bulleted list
  • Numbered list
  • Checkbox list
  • Add Link
  • Quote
  • Code
  • Code Block

STEP 3. [Optional] Add any text to the tooltip to be shown when you hover over the widget title bar.
