question about labels

Engager

Hi.

with the code below, I am able to pull out data from our company's network and categorize them by region, as well as drilling down up to specific host. My only problem is, when I select for example 'APAC" in the first dropdown (token:region), the second dropdown with token $hostname$ displays the whole value of APAC as set in the condition,

      <set token="hostname">toyosu* OR daikan* OR hongkong* OR singapore* OR sydney* OR taipei* OR seoul* OR tokyo* OR osaka* OR manila* OR beijing* OR tsuenwan* OR shenzhen* OR shanghai* OR jakarta* OR kualalumpur* OR mumbai* OR bangkok* OR wellington* OR melbourne* OR canberra*</set>

so, hte dropdown menu using token hostname will display "toyosu* OR ~ ...".

Is there a way for me to set to display a custom label rather than the value of the whole token? like if i select "APAC" in the first dropdown, the second dropdown will display the token value , but will display as "ALL".

index=nm "CFM defect" syslogmessage!="CFM defect: none*" host=$hostname$

Why not use tags?

We do something similar in our environment:
We assign tags based on the hostname parts of of servers, so PROD-eu1-webserver-01 gets broken into

tag=PROD
tag=eu1
tag=webserver

We now build our panels with three token drop downs for Environment, Location, Service, each with an ALL (*) option too.
You can either specify your tags in the form (if they don't change often) or load them from a populating search.
If you decide on the latter consider building a scheduled search to populate a lookup table with your various tag names, and then load the lookup when your form loads.

Yes, this screams for tags ( tag=APAC, etc.)

You create the tag definitions outside of the dashboard and then have a list of tags and then use tag=$tag_token$ in your dashboard search strings.
