When redirecting from a drilldown, why is testfield in redirect not correct on tables with multiple rows?

Contributor

Hi,

This below config is not redirecting with the correct field if more than one row exists on the table. I have a feeling I'm missing something simple.

<param name="fields">testfield</param>

  <module name="Redirector">

    <param name="url">flashtimeline</param>

    <param name="popup">True</param>

    <param name="arg.earliest">-8h</param>

    <param name="arg.latest">$search.timeRange.latest$</param>

    <param name="arg.q">index=testindex "$click.value2$" testfield="$testfield$</param>

        </module>

        </module>

        </module>

        </module>

        </module>

1) It's a little weird to use $click.*$ tokens if you're using Sideview Utils, because the Sideview tokens are a lot more intuitive and flexible. If the first column in your table is "user", then I would replace $click.value2$ with $click.fields.user$. It will work the same; it's just easier to understand.

2) At first I thought with $testfield$, that you weren't intending that to incorporate anything from the drilldown row, but perhaps you are? If so, if there's a column called "testfield" in the results, then you want $click.fields.testfield$.

If I had to guess, I'd say the "it works for only one row" mystery is somehow related to there being a form element module upstream whose name is actually "testfield".

You are right. $click.fields.user$ is the solution. Many Thanks!

Can you include the module and param tags for the Table/SimpleResultsTable ?
