How to drilldown selected choices from one multiselect input form to another multiselect input form (on another dashboard)?

Contributor

I have 2 dashboards say "Summary View Dashboard" and "Details Dashboard". Both dashboards have multiselect input say "Account". User could have chosen multiple choices for "Account" at the "Summary View Dashboard". I would like to find out a way to carry these selected values for "Account" from"Summary View Dashboard" when drilldown-ed to "Details Dashboard". Would really appreciate any help.

Hi, you can use the drilldown tag to achieve this.

Example summary view dashboard

<drilldown>
            <link>/app/search/details_dashboard?accounts_selected=$accounts$</link>
</drilldown>

In the details dashboard, you can use the accounts variable as $accounts_selected$

Hi shariinPH,
did you already seen the Splunk Dashboard Examples App ( https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/ )?
in this App there are some examples of tokens use cases.
Anyway, you have to pass the token to the drilldown:
if your multiselect input token is called "my_token", in the drilldown section you have to put something like this:

<drilldown>
   <link target="_blank">/app/my_app/my_secondary_form?my_token=$mytoken$</link>
</drilldown>

in this way, you pass the multi-input choices to the secondary dashboard.
Obviously, you have to manage it in the secondary dashboard, but in the Example App you can find an example of this.

Bye.
Giuseppe
