How do you link reports or a search query to a bar chart?

I have a bar chart that shows test case status like 60% pass, 40% fail. (that bar chart is generated dynamically based on the values selected in the dropdowns).

My requirement is that when I click on this graph, it should redirect to either reports or a search query, which would show me the testcase details (like testcase ID, testcase name) that are passed or failed.

That search query should be dynamically built based on the values selected in the dropdowns.

Is there any way we can achieve this?

Thanks for the response. So, It can only be achieved using tokens. We can't use the temporary variables used while creating the bar chart?
For eg: this is my search query to create Bar chart: $source$ "$Category_token$"|convert auto("$BuildTok1$") as Actualtime |
convert auto(Requirement) as ExpectedTime | eval TestStatus=case(Actualtime==0, "NotExecuted", Actualtime <= ExpectedTime ,"Pass", Actualtime > ExpectedTime, "Fail") |stats count by TestStatus

this search gives me output of 2 columns (teststatus and count) with values below it. So,
1. is it possible to use teststatus in drilldowns?

Or if not teststatus, if I have to use tokens like "$Category_token$", what value would I assign in drilldowns. Becuase their value is not part of the search output.

Yes, using $row.count$ and $row.TestStatus$ you can invoke the next search (drill-down search)

You need to implement a drill-down behaviour using token [ captures the field clicked from bar chart] and then invokes another report/search using that token.

Pls see examples in https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.4/Viz/DrilldownIntro

There are also examples in dashboard app - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/
