Dashboards & Visualizations

Dashboard Studio, Splunk Version: 9.1.3 - Setting default token values not working.

I am trying to set some token values when a dashboard loads or when the page is refreshed.

 

The documentation gives the following example:

"defaults": {
  "dataSources": {
    "ds.search": {
      "options": {
        "queryParameters": {
          "latest": "$global_time.latest$",
          "earliest": "$global_time.earliest$"
        }
      }
    }
  },
  "tokens": {
    "default": {
      "tokenName": {
        "value": "1986"
      }
    }
  }
},

This my code:
"defaults": {
		"dataSources": {
			"ds.search": {
				"options": {
					"queryParameters": {
						"latest": "$global_time.latest$",
						"earliest": "$global_time.earliest$"
					}
				}
			}
		},
		"tokens": {
			"default": {
				"Slot1_TailNum": {
					"value": "false"
				}
			}
		}
	},

Which is not working. 

I am using the "Interactions" Set tokens to set the value of the "Slot1_TailNum" token to something other than false to hide/show a table, which works fine. 

However when reloading the Dashboard or refreshing the page the table is still displayed, it does not seem to be setting the value to false when loading.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can run a zoom if required it you want/need to see.

 

Thanks

David

When you refresh, can you see the token in the URL as form.Slot1_TailNum=true ? When you interact with the dashboard, it preserves the token values in the URL so they will keep their values when the page is simply refreshed. You can reload the page completely by removing all the token values after the question mark (?) in your dashboard URL.
