Earliest is the max(timestamp) from an inputlookup

We have a job which routinely creates an outputlookup containing the time (timestamp) it has completed a successful summary index.

We'd like to use this information in a dashboard such that the earliest is max(timestamp)

idea:

index=some_index_summary earliest=the max(timestamp) from my inputlookup

Doing earliest and latest in a subsearch is tricky and requires special handling, including only using integer values and eliminating double-quotes. Try this for your subsearch; it will work unless timestamp is not a number (it must be a time_t😞

 index=some_index_summary [|inputlookup my_inputlookup | stats max(timestamp) AS earliest
 | format "" "" "" "" "" ""
 | rex field=search mode=sed "s/\"//g"]
