Unable to plot custom Tag Cloud chart in splunk?

Explorer

Hi ALL,

In the "custom visualizations" app, I need to plot custom Tag cloud chart. But when I have changed the query in the XML, the chart is showing different chart(other than Tag cloud chart as expected). Can any one please help me to get out of this?

Thanks for the solution in advance,

Regards,
Mahesh.

That's not how you use SimpleXML for custom visualization at all. Please read the Tutorial page of the Custom Visualization app.

The SimpleXML should look like:

<panel>
  <html>
    <h2>Top 100 Most Common Terms in an Ad-hoc Search Query</h2>
    <div id="tagcloud_search" class="splunk-manager" data-require="splunkjs/mvc/searchmanager" data-options='{
      "preview": true,
      "search": "index=_audit NOT REST: search=* | regex search_id=\"&apos;\\d+\\.\\d+&apos;\" | rex field=search max_match=0 \"(?&lt;terms&gt;\\w+)\" | top limit=100 terms | eval r=random() | sort r",
      "earliest_time": {
        "type": "token_safe",
        "value": "$$earliest$$"
      },
      "latest_time": {
        "type": "token_safe",
        "value": "$$latest$$"
      }
    }'>
    </div>
    <div id="tagcloud" class="splunk-view" data-require="app/custom_vizs/components/tagcloud/tagcloud" data-options='{
      "minFontSize": 14,
      "maxFontSize": 55,
      "managerid": "tagcloud_search",
      "valueField": "count",
      "labelField": "terms"
    }'>
    </div>
 </html>
</panel>
