Drilldowns and Internet Explorer 8

Path Finder

There seems to be some kind of issue with dynamic drilldowns with Splunk and Internet Explorer.

I've been building dashboards and UIs with drilldown and it all worked fine until I tried to get other people to use it. I noticed that while drilldowns worked in Firefox, it didn't work properly in Internet explorer.

For example, when I try to pass a value from a drilldown to another form such as :

<table>
<title>Table panel with dynamic drilldown that passes the clicked row's 'count' column value to populate a form</title>
<searchString>index=_internal | head 1000 | stats count by user</searchString>
<option name="count">10</option>
<drilldown>
<link>/app/simple_xml_examples/simple_form_text?form.limit=$row.count$</link>
</drilldown>
</table>

The $row.count$ variable doesn't get passed to the form properly when using IE. I think it has something to do with the way it handles links and addresses? Not sure..

I'm on Splunk 6, and the problem is with IE8.. I haven't tested it on any other versions of IE since I don't have admin rights to upgrade or install.

Has anyone else seen this problem or know how to address it? (other than switching browsers)

Cheers,

Re: Drilldowns and Internet Explorer 8

This should be fixed in Splunk 6.0.1.

Re: Drilldowns and Internet Explorer 8

I am seeing the same issue with IE 9

None of the links for drilldowns work and they are configured in the same basic format.

      <table>
    <title>Top detected logtypes from generic</title>
    <searchString>sourcetype=generic | stats count by logtype | sort -count | table logtype, count</searchString>
    <earliestTime>$time_picker.earliest$</earliestTime>
    <latestTime>$time_picker.latest$</latestTime>
    <option name="wrap">true</option>
    <option name="rowNumbers">false</option>
    <option name="dataOverlayMode">none</option>
    <option name="count">20</option>
    <option name="table.drilldown">all</option>
    <drilldown target="Generic Detailed View">
      <link>
        /app/my_app/generic_detailed_view?form.logtype=$row.logtype$
      </link>
    </drilldown>
  </table>

Works fine in Chrome however the client has specifically requested Splunk must work with IE.

Facing same issue. It works fine in Chrome or Firefox but when in IE, drilldown doesn't work at all. Nothing happens on click.
Difficult to make client understand this problem.
