@matt1t once the search query runs, how are you moving the panel to your dashboard? Are you using
Save as Dashboard option or are you merging the search
<query> manually? By any chance are you using Post-Processing in the dashboard?
On the dashboard I click edit, and then it has a plus sign which then loads a Add Indicators. I choose the indicator I created and then its added.
I wonder is this is the issue. So when I click on the preview, my search runs and I get the data I expect. If I'm within the Content Management section and look at the info for my key indicator I get the following stats:
Avg. Event Count ..... 17.36
Avg. Result Count ..... 0
Avg. Run Time ....... 0:00:02
Invocations ....... 25
Skipped ........ 0
Update Time ........ Jan 6, 2020 10:30:00 AM
So no successes and 25 invocations? What are invocations and how can I fix this?
I figured it out, however this makes no sense. Many examples on the key indicators start with search and then the actual search. Example would be "search index=some_index earliest=-3d@d blah blah blah". With the search in front my preview works, but the results are missing on the dashboard. If I take the search out of it, the preview no longer work, however its now working on my dashboard. I don't know what made me try that but I now have my dashboard working so I'm happy. Maybe someone can explain the difference?
