Dashboards & Visualizations

How to generate a "less than" filter in a dashboard?


I want to build a dashboard with a text input as a filter, that shows all values in a field which are less than XX. I wanna do it with a textbox as input, cause the column includes values between 0 and 1677215.

e.g.: If i write 20000 in the textbox, the dashboard should show me all values less (or equal) 20000.

I've tried to escape the "<" expression with "& lt;" , but that didn't work (the space between & and l is, of course, not in my sourcode, but just here).

Hi @qxu5715,

This is a run anywhere example

  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="text" token="limit" searchWhenChanged="true">
          <query>index=_*|stats count by sourcetype|where count<$limit$</query>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
