How do I make a clickable hyperlink in search result?

If the event has a URL and you want to show the URL in a search table where you can make the URL a clickable link that will go to that URL, how do you do this?

Example: Field is URL in the event and you want to display that URL in a table search aka index = ... | table URL

I want to be able to click on that URL and go to the link as to having to copy the URL and manually paste it into a browser.

Is there a way to do this in the generic search results?  AKA not via a dashboard?  

No matter what I put in the field value it only lets me click it say "include/exclude in search results" and I'm thinking there's no way to override this.

 

<link> - No

<a href="> No

http://whatever No

There is an example that demonstrates this in the Dashboard Examples App on Splunkbase:

Hi @peterlandis,

Try this example. You need to prevent the URL escaping by adding a |n ie. <link target="_blank">$row.URL|n$</link> to the token to avoid Splunk adding its own prefix.

<dashboard>
  <label>TokenTest</label>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>| makeresults |eval URL="https://answers.splunk.com/index.html"</query>
          <earliest>-5s@s</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="count">10</option>
        <option name="drilldown">cell</option>
        <drilldown>
          <link target="_blank">$row.URL|n$</link>
        </drilldown>
      </table>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>
Happy Splunking!
