hi @Shahid_Chaudhary,

You could you create a data-table with the host-names (term aggregation on beat.name) and add it to the dashboard. Then, you an click on one of the rows in the table that corresponds to the host, and it will add it as a filter to the filter-bar. The other visualizations will adjust.
