3rd party launching splunk saved search with parameters?

Path Finder

Hi - I have a button click action in a 3rd party system to launch a new browser window to my splunk instance. I can tweak the search. If I created a tokenized dashboard, is it possible to drive the tokens from the URL into the dashboard somehow?

To clarify, I am not trying to pull the dash results into the 3rd party app - the app is launching a window and I am seeing the dashboard in splunk directly, with details provided by the third party.

Thanks for any pointers!

If you can dynamically populate the link the user clicks on in the third party tool then yes, you can pre-populate your dashboard by making your link look like the code below.

[URL]?form.[target_token_name]=[$source_value$]

[URL] = the URL of your Splunk dashboard
[targettokenname] = the name of your Splunk dashboard token
[$source_value$] = the value populated from the third party tool.
