Dashboards & Visualizations

How do you update the displayed value of an input form based on a token in the same dashboard.

Assume I am using Simple XML dashboards/form In Splunk 6.1 and higher.

I reveal a drilldown panel after the user selects a drilldown value from a chart in the same dashboard. The revealed drilldown panel has a search box that filter the results in a table. When the user selects the drilldown value in the first chart, it would be really helpful if the input form on the drilldown panel could be populated with the selected drilldown value. Is this possible? I want the flexibility for the user to select new drilldown values and fields even after the initial drilldown value was selected.

Right now, the input form for "exe_stats" will not show the drilldown value when the user clicks the value in the first chart.

Sample code

In first chart that is always visible:
<drilldown target="_blank">
  <condition field="*">
    &lt;set token="exe_stats"&gt;$click.value$&lt;/set&gt;
  </condition>
</drilldown>


In the drilldown chart:
&lt;panel depends="$exe_stats$"&gt;
 ...
    <input searchWhenChanged="true" token="exe_stats" type="dropdown"">
        <label>Search Value (use &quot;*&quot; as wildcards)</label>
        <search>
          <query>| inputlookup ...</query>
        </search>
        <choice value="*">All</choice>
        <fieldForLabel>exe_dd_value</fieldForLabel>
        <fieldForValue>exe_dd_value</fieldForValue>
        <allowCustomValues>true</allowCustomValues>
      </input>
      <table>
        &lt;search&gt;&lt;query&gt;index=.... ExeName="$exe_stats$" | &lt;/query&gt;&lt;/search&gt;
</panel>

Add this below your other "set" tag:

  <set token="form.exe_stats">$click.value$</set>

This will set the "exe_stats" form token for you.

Hope this helps.

Confirmed. Thank you so much. Seems obvious now.

Apologies for the code getting reformatted. I can't seem to figure out how to stop that.
