tested with 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-05-21-233425, there are 3 dashboards on "Monitoring -> Dashboards" have dropdown filters that should default to "All", but
Kubernetes / Networking / Pod -> Namespace field should default to "All", but it sets the default to the first value in the list, usually openshift-apiserver
Kubernetes / Networking / Namespace (Pods) -> Namespace field should default to "All", but it sets the default to the first value in the list, usually openshift-apiserver
Prometheus / Overview -> Job,Instance fields default to "All", no issue for this dashboard

Comment 7 Andrew Pickering 2021-05-24 08:35:04 UTC
This looks like the expected behavior.

We only use "All" as the default value when the dashboard definition explicitly states that we should. Grafana seems to have a different behavior of also defaulting to "All" when no default is specified.

Specifically, we are looking for the following in the JSON dashboard definition:

"current": {
  "selected": true,
  "value"" "$__all",

Comment 9 Junqi Zhao 2021-05-25 06:48:13 UTC
based on Comment 7, only the "Prometheus / Overview" dashboard, which use the grafana-dashboard-prometheus configmap has the JSON dashboard definition:

"current": {
  "selected": true,
  "value"" "$__all",

and Job,Instance fields default to "All", set to VERIFIED
