Constant strings

Hi,

I'm using dbdata (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4253/) application in order to access my REST endpoint to collect events to splunk.
Here is a sample:

| dbdata url="[Endpoint url]?param1=value1&param2=value2" headers="[headers data]"

So as far I have several searches, is it possible in splunk to consfigure parametrized constants for url and headers params, so I could reuse them in those searches - kind of searches global config:

| dbdata url=URL_CONSTANT."?param1=value1&param2=value2" headers=HEADER_CONSTANT

Any thoughts?

Yes, first create macros called URL_CONSTANT and HEADER_CONSTANT that have your strings, then use it like this:

| makereuslts
| eval url = `URL_CONSTANT` . "?param1=value1&param2=value2", headers=`HEADER_CONSTANT`
| map search="| dbdata url=$url$ headers=headers"
