Markdown tile

The Markdown tile enables you to add rich text comments to your dashboard. You can write annotations to tiles or add links to related Dynatrace entities or views.

Markdown provides powerful possibilities to format your comments. You find Markdown documentation at Commonweb.org.

To add a markdown tile to your dashboard:

  1. In the navigation menu, click Dashboards.
  2. Click the required dashboard to open it.
  3. In the upper-right corner of the page, click Edit. The right-hand panel displays the catalog of available tiles.
  4. Find the markdown tile and drag it to the required position.
  5. Type your text into the input field in the right-hand panel. A preview of the tile is immediately displayed.
