Dashboards & Visualizations

How do you transform a subsearch into a string literal and not SPL?

Engager

I have a token I want to set up when I first init dashboard:
[stats count | eval search=strftime(now(), "mysearch%y%m%d%H%M%S.csv")]
But this gets interpreted dynamically throughout changing the name of the file. I just want to have a timestamp literal I can reuse. Been at it for a while using fieldformat, print, etc. Thanks!

You can init strftime(now(), "mysearch%y%m%d%H%M%S.csv") first then use it in the actual token.

<init>
    <eval token="filename">strftime(now(), "mysearch%y%m%d%H%M%S.csv")</eval>
    <set token="search">[stats count | eval search=$filename$]</set>
  </init>
