I am splunk end user and have limited access to splunk app UI, I am quite new to this and would require your help.
Our admin team gets the data loaded into our splunk app from our servers, from that data I have created dashboard which has graphs for various things.
But the log does not contain certain information for which I want to create graph so would like to supply this new raw data manually. I searched online and can see this can be done by adding/installing add-ons but as I said I have limited access.
Can anyone suggest how can I achieve same?
I came across Text input [tokens], is it possible to supply my data in some format in the text input box and then create a graph out of it. For example I have to create graph of some ticket count per day, I can supply data in below format and would like to create a bar chart showing ticket count per day.
Any help will be much appreciated.
How about you put this data in a lookup file and upload to Splunk? (you should've access to create private lookups) You can use a text input as well but it will have limited input string length and there would a further restriction of browser's URL length. For reference, here is what your search would look like if using text input to get that colon/pipe separate data
| gentimes start=-1 | eval temp="$YourToken$" | table temp | makemv temp delim="|" | mvexpand temp | rex field=temp "(?<Date>.+)\:(?<count>.+)" | eval _time=strptime(Date,"%m.%d.%Y") | timechart span=1d sum(count) as count
