Based on drop down list value how to change search string in each panel

eg 

for panel to load the search string will vary as below:

index=test (source="/test/log/path/test1.log" $param1$  c="$param2$" $dropdownlistvalue1$ $dropdownlistvalue1$)


As log path is different all my params vary. so how can i change index based of drop down list value?

You might be able to use the change stanza for the input to set up multiple tokens based on the value selected. For example, your value in the drop down could have 3 parts delimited by some character, e.g. colon. The change stanza would then process the value and set 3 different tokens based on the 3 parts of the value.

eg. i have in drop down i have server and cloud. 

if i select Server - the path would be 

source="/test/log/path/server1.log"

 

if i select cloud the path would be vary for each region.

for TEST -  source="/test/log/path/testserver1.log"

for QA -   source="/test/log/path/qaserver1.log"

for PROD -   source="/test/log/path/prodserver1.log"

 

so i kept the first drop down list to select server and cloud. And then environment drop down lsit. and remaining panels load based on the server/cloud drop down list and env .drop down list

Couldn't you just have one drop down?

EnvironmentLog source
Server/test/log/path/server1.log
TEST/test/log/path/testserver1.log
QA/test/log/path/qaserver1.log
PROD/test/log/path/prodserver1.log

The dropdown has two fields, the label and the value - it is the label that is shown to the user and the value which is put in the token

When you use the token in a search, the value can be found out by the user if they open the search in another window. There are ways to make this more difficult to find out but do you really need to go that far?

So we have to create two different drop down list for each path and show/hide can be used?
