Why does an R search not work on a dashboard?

Path Finder

I have a search that is working great in the search app of splunk that includes and R script (through the R Project App). When I save it as a Dashboard Panel the search no longer works when I go to the dashboard, but it still works in the search app. Does anyone know why?

My hunch is that the dashboard is flattening out the lines of the R search and ignoring new lines. The search works like this:
...search... | r " source('predictR.r')
output=data.frame(predictR(input)) "
BUT not like this:
...search... | r " source('predictR.r') output=data.frame(predictR(input)) "
Which is why I think that the dashboard ignores new lines when the search app does not.

Any ideas? 🙂

Use ; as a statement delimiter.

Can we use Where condition here, so that we can get the results based on condition.???
if we can get that, can you please post the answer to

Maybe try inserting \n at the end of each line. Just an idea...

Could you try using < ![CDATA[ > in the dashboard?
