Dashboards & Visualizations

How do I set up a conditional drilldown in Simple XML from my bar chart to another dashboard?

Communicator

I have a bar chart. When I click on a particular bar, I'd like to control the drilldown to another dashboard. Combed through the docs, but can't find anything. Also checked Answers and checked answers for other similar questions, but they are not working for me.

        <drilldown>
          <condition click.name="C0">
            <link target="_blank">
                <![CDATA[
                 /app/RAS/cluster0?q=search%20$click.name$
                  ]]>
            </link>
          </condition>
          <condition click.name="C0">
            <link target="_blank">
                <![CDATA[
                 /app/RAS/cluster_1?q=search%20$click.name$
                  ]]>
            </link>
          </condition>
        </drilldown>

Sorry I misunderstood your original question. i thought you had a table instead of a bar chart.

I don't think you can use a token as an attribute of the condition tag. See http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.2/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML#Drilldown_eleme...

Instead you could rename your fields to to match the name of your dashboard (or vice versa). For example, change eval Cluster="C"+substr(Node,10,1) to eval Cluster="cluster_"+substr(Node,10,1) Then remove the condition tags and just have the following.

<drilldown target="_blank">
 <link>
     /app/RAS/$click.value$?q=search%20$click.value$                 
 </link>
</drilldown>

What do you mean by bar? The column title? The entire row? A particular cell?

Also the condition tags you have there have identical values. Is that correct?

Yes the column tile/field name. Sorry about: first condition is "C0" and second condition is "C1". Even though the conditions are different they drilldown to the same dashboard.
