Dashboards & Visualizations

Dashboard panels becoming unhidden on page refresh


I hide certain panels if their results are 0 in my dashboard. This works great when I load up my dashboard page initially. However, if I manually refresh the browser page, these panels seems to re-search but continue to show themselves even when they have 0 results. The only way I can get them to hide again is to go to the main dashboard link without the trailing field/values for time etc in the URL.

This is one of the panels code and the hide logic is the same throughout (within "progress" block):

    <panel depends="$exec_show$">
      <title>Pending Executive Summaries</title>
            <condition match="'job.resultCount' > 0">
              <set token="exec_show">true</set>
              <unset token="exec_show"></unset>
        <option name="count">100</option>
        <option name="dataOverlayMode">none</option>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
        <option name="percentagesRow">false</option>
        <option name="refresh.display">progressbar</option>
        <option name="rowNumbers">false</option>
        <option name="totalsRow">false</option>
        <option name="wrap">true</option>

Of note is that the data is from an | inputlookup search command and uses global time because it's more of a DB dump than events over time.

Anyone know how to keep the panels hidden on browser refresh?

Please ignore...

I was setting the token unintentionally in another search in the dashboard due to a poor copy/paste.

@thisissplunk if you have time input with token name as time_tok then corresponding earliest and latest tokens will be $time_tok.earliest$ and $time_tok.latest$ respectively, not $earliest$ or $latest$. Please verify and confirm.

I have the time picker set to Global as the time is irrelevant. The data is essentially a csv dump of rows without _time being used.
