How to create events per dashboard inputs and save it to index XY afterwards

Hello, I want to create a dashboard on which I can create events per inputs (fields like project, action, from, to) and by clicking on a submit button it will be saved in a certain index. So far I found the "collect" command, but since I don´t get any search results and want to create a event from scratch, I can´t really use it.

Do you have any idea?

Thanks a lot and kind regards
Benjamin

You can use the makeresults commands to generate dummy row (or gentimes) and then add fields based on your form input and use collect command to save them in index.

Example search (works on 6.3+ versions)

| makeresults | eval project="$projecttoken$" | eval action="$actiontoken$" ....
| collect ....

or (works on all versions)

| gentimes start=-1 | eval project="$projecttoken$" | table project  | eval action="$actiontoken$" ....
| collect ....

Your request is highly unusual. It would help us to understand the full use-case, perhaps with examples a start-to-finish walk-though of one "creation".
