Hi @ashidhingra,

see in the Splunk Dashboard Examples App (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/) there's a sample to do what you need: "Null Search Swapper".




If some of your tables use the same search, you might be able to use a common token, but there is no generic command to do this.

You could consider writing a script to edit the source to place all the code necessary, or just copy/paste the code in and go through and edit each one (or set up a script to do this).

Another possibility might be writing some javascript to do this, but I wouldn't know where to start for that I am afraid.
