Using a google map on a form

Communicator

I've got a custom form with a time selector and I'd like to use a google map to display some results. My form basically looks like this:

<form>
<label>Product Dashboard</label>
<fieldset>
<input type = "time" />
</fieldset>
....
<row>
<table>
<title>Google Map</title>
<searchTemplate?>sourcetype = "access_combined" | geoip clientip</searchTemplate>
</table>
</row>
</form>

I do see results in the table when I run the form, but they're obviously not displaying on a google map. I see instructions for the google map app on how to use it on a dashboard, but what about on a form? Is this possible?

Thanks!

Sure, it's possible. But you have to use the advanced XML version of your view. You can convert your form to advanced XML by appending ?showsource=1 to the URL when you're viewing it in the browser. You'll see the advanced XML sourcecode in the textbox on the very bottom of the resulting page.

Copy this code over to your view file and simply replace the SimpleResultsTable module with a GoogleMaps module.

That worked, thanks.

Why in the world doesn't splunk have a "show advanced XML" on the edit page for the view?

Sounds like a good idea for an enhancement request.
