hello i want some help to understand Query used in chart panel and form , which one we are using
add a line chart panel that uses the following search.
index=_internal | timechart count
But in form we use below Query :-
a.Click Edit to open the dashboard editor.
b.Select Add Input > Dropdown.
3.Configure the input.
a.Select the input editing icon.
b.Select Dynamic options.
c.Add the following search to generate input labels and values.
index=_internal | stats count by sourcetype | eval label=sourcetype." (".count.")"
What exactly do you want to know? Is it not doing something that you want, or do you just want to understand what it is doing, or is it something else?
@Imjoin : Your query is not clear.Do you want to know why 2 queries?
1st query is to show the count using time chart command in the panel.
2nd query is to build the input for that dashboard.
