Drop Down list using populating search in 6.1

Hello,

I have been using Splunk 6.0.2 version with my App and all was well. I upgraded my Splunk to 6.1 and i noticed the drop down list using populating search is missing a very useful feature that was there in past versions.

In 6.0.2, when I had many listings under the dropdown list, I would get a text box on top where the user can input text and the drop down list will filter based on this input. This key feature seem to be missing with default options. I was wondering if there is any other options to bring back this useful feature.

Thanks

Here a feedback from Splunk Support:

Hi Musskopf,

I just wanted to let you know that this issue has been fixed in development. The functionality will return in 6.1.4 when that is released.

Best Regards,

hey folks: i'm afraid this fix did not actually make the cut for 6.1.4 or 6.1.5. it's currently targeted for 6.1.6, but i have to be clear here: unfortunately, we can never guarantee that a given fix will make it into a given release--it's always possible that a more urgent issue will force us to reprioritize the list. i apologize that Louis did not make this clear in his response.

it is, however, fixed in 6.2, which has already shipped. thanks for your patience.

+1, I'm missing that little "search filter" to the drop-down list items.

In 6.1 you have the "Edit Inputs" option when you ware editing a Dashboard... one of the inputs options is a multiselect dropdown... that's what you want.

Here's the step by step doc:

With Splunk... the answer is always "YES!". It just might require more regex than you're prepared for!

I have this problem too. Switching to multi-select will require I change hundreds of queries on dozens of dashboards -- and give users the option of doing things they should not do: select multiple items in cases they should only select one.
