How to customize "Open in Search" query in dashboard panels bottom right?

The query that is generated by splunk is quite convoluted and I would like to provide my own query for this "Open In Search" on 1 of the panels in my dashboard. Is it possible to do so?

 

edit: Corrected to "Open in Search"

I was using a baseSearch in this case and realized it's going to be much better to not use it and fire a new search (as the baseSearch had a transaction in it).  I will keep these solutions in mind if similar issues going forward. Thanks for your responses.

You can remove the existing "open in Seach menu" from Panel and add new one with your requirement using JS.

Can you please try below Example?

XML

<dashboard script="myJs.js">
  <label>Sample Dashboard</label>
  <row>
    <panel id="panel1">
      <table>
        <search id="search_1">
          <query>| makeresults count=5 | eval a=1| accum a </query>
        </search>
      </table>
      <html>
        <div id="controlpanel"></div>
      </html>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>

 

myJs.js

 

require([
    'underscore',
    'jquery',
    "splunkjs/mvc/resultslinkview",
    'splunkjs/mvc',
    'splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!'
], function (_, $, ResultsLinkView, mvc) {


    $(document).ready(function () {

        $('#panel1 .menus').html("")
        
        var resultsLink = new ResultsLinkView({
            id: "resultsLink",
            managerid: "search_1",
            "link.openSearch.search": "index=test with custom SLP",
            "link.openSearch.searchEarliestTime": '0',
            "link.openSearch.searchLatestTime": 'now',
            el: $("#controlpanel")
        });

        resultsLink.render().$el.appendTo($("controlpanel"));


    });
});

 

Refer this document for more options.

You can use a drilldown to open a search with a different search string, so rather than using the bottom right, the user clicks on the dashboard panel
