• Honeycomb boards are a way to collect and share your queries. 


  • A lot of teams have a need to collect all of the things that they want to see into one place on dashboards, or in Honeycomb’s case, what we call a board. These can serve as great jumping-off points for explorations in your system. 
  • In Honeycomb, we encourage a fluid exploratory approach, but it can be very useful to collect and share all of this knowledge into one place with everyone on the team.


  • To create a board, use the, “add to board,” button within the query builder when you have a query that you want to save. 
  • When you see the creation modal, you’ll be presented with a couple of options. You can either save to an existing board or add it to a totally new one. 
  • If you create a board, you might configure the access controls for the board. So you can either make it public for everyone on your team or private to only collaborators that you invite. 
  • Select whether you want a list or a visual view board that will show all the query graphs. To access a board that you’ve created previously, use the link on the left-hand side of the menu.

Additional Information:

  • Board permissions and ownership can be configured from the board itself. You can also configure the other settings of the board, like where the queries appear and the time range. 
  • Board support in API for basic create, read, update, and delete methods. Click here to access our board API documentation. 
  • Click here for our documents page on Boards.
  • Duplicate boards across different environments. Click Manage in a Board and select Duplicate Board. This will prompt a modal where you can select which environment you want to duplicate the board to.
  • Customize queries in Board Templates by selecting another field in each dropdown on the Setup page. Clicking "Use Template" will create a Board with customized queries.  Click herefor more information.  

    By default, Board Templates populate queries based on a set of fields that Honeycomb detects. Teams now have the option to choose any other available fields to populate in these queries. You can also share any customized template by selecting Copy Link.
