Dashboard Store#

The Dashboard Store is a key-value database that can be used for many things.

Its most popular use case is to define visibility conditions within the Dashboard Editor, though it can also be used for other purposes as well, including defining additional query parameters.

Reference: To learn more about visualizing layers, see Visibility Conditions.


Each dashboard has its own unique Dashboard Store. Values entered in one dashboard will not be available in another.

Defining Layer Dashboard Store Values#

Layer visualizations can be controlled via Dashboard Store visibility conditions. To set up a Dashboard Store visibility condition, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Dashboard Editor for your dashboard.

  2. Click the layer you want to edit.

  3. Click Visibility Condition +.

  4. Use the dropdown to select Dashboard Store and choose your conditions, store key, and value.

Individual widget behavior can also be controlled via Dashboard Store key-value pairs, or provide the basis for other layers’ visibility conditions.


Not all widgets can be controlled by the Dashboard Store.

  1. Open the Dashboard Editor for your dashboard.

  2. Click the widget you want to edit.

  3. Under the Data section, choose to Control By Dashboard Store.
