Form/Dashboard token for search

Hello, i have what i believe is a basic search and what should work however it doesnt seem to display anything when i search for it.

Effectively what i want it to do is, when you type in X number that will pass into the search as X_token and then search for the number you have just input. could i have some guidance on this please.

<input type="text" token="X_token" searchWhenChanged="false">
  <label>Enter X number for individual information</label>
</input>


<panel>
  <table>
    <search>
      <query>index=* $X_token$  | table "X number" "First Name" Surname "Mobile Number"  Cell Role</query>
      <earliest>-7d@h</earliest>
      <latest>now</latest>
    </search>
    <option name="drilldown">none</option>
    <option name="refresh.display">progressbar</option>
  </table>
</panel>

Have you tested the query in the Search & Reporting app by replacing X_token with a number?
BTW, index=* is poor form.

hello, i have yes, the main reason for the index=* is for obfuscation whilst i asked the question, hence X_number and X_token again. I believe i have found out what is causing it, although i do not know the fix for it.

If i complete the search in "fast mode" i get no results, which is by deafult what dashbaords are set up for. so i believe i have to set the dashbaord up to search in verbose mode. OR ammend the search query

Fast mode means fields are not extracted automatically at search time so you'll only see index-time fields and those explicitly extracted by the search.
