How to make a second download button

Path Finder

Does anybody know of a way to make a second download button (could use the same modal as the official dashboard one)?
I've tried playing around with some custom JS and tried messing with the data_cid field a bit.
Not sure how to proceed.

Hi @hallt3

I have a dashboard that serves a purpose almost similar to yours.

Let me try to explain it here.. See if that helps in your case.

For this, I have a used a JS file called download_test.js:

//$("#modal3").append($("<button class=\"btn btn-primary\">Launch Modal</button>").click(function() {
$("#download_file_div").append($("<button id=\"download_file_button\">Download File</button>").click(function() {
    // The require will let us tell the browser to load /static/app/MyTest/Modal.js with the name "Modal"
    require(['jquery',
        '/static/app/MyTest/Modal.js',
        'underscore',
        'splunkjs/mvc',
        'splunkjs/mvc/utils',
        'splunkjs/mvc/tokenutils',
        'splunkjs/mvc/searchmanager',
        'splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!'
    ], function($,Modal,_, mvc, utils, TokenUtils, SearchManager) {
        // Now we initialize the Modal itself
        var myModal = new Modal("modal1", {
            title: "Alert!!!",
            backdrop: 'static',
            keyboard: false,
            destroyOnHide: true,
            type: 'normal'
        });


        // Create a Search Manager
        var exportSearch = new SearchManager({
             earliest_time: "-24h",
             latest_time: "now",
             search: "index=_internal |top 5  sourcetype", //some dummy search to fill up the content of the csv
             autostart: false
    });     

        $(myModal.$el).on("hide", function() {})
        myModal.body.append($('<p>Do you want to download the session details?</p>'));
        myModal.footer.append($('<button>').attr({
            type: 'button',
            'data-dismiss': 'modal'
        }).addClass('btn btn-primary icon-export').on('click', function(_, $, mvc, utils, TokenUtils) {      
        exportSearch.startSearch();
        var exportResults = exportSearch.data("results");
        exportResults.on("data", function () {
            //var data = exportResults.collection().toJSON();
            var data = exportResults.data().fields +"\n";
            console.log("d1: "+data);
            console.log("exportResults.data().rows: "+exportResults.data().rows);
            jQuery.each(exportResults.data().rows, function(row){
                data=data+"\n"+exportResults.data().rows[row];
            });
            console.log("d2: "+data);
            // download data as file
            var hiddenElement = document.createElement('a');
            //hiddenElement.href = 'data:attachment/csv,' + encodeURI(JSON.stringify(data, null, 2));
            hiddenElement.href = 'data:attachment/csv,' + encodeURI(data);
            hiddenElement.target = '_blank';
            hiddenElement.download = 'exportData.csv';
            hiddenElement.click();  
        });
        }), $('<button>').attr({
            type: 'button',
            'data-dismiss': 'modal'
        }).addClass('btn btn-primary').text('Never Mind').on('click', function() {
            //Some logic for the 'Never Mind' button, if required.. May be the logout option.
            var logoutURL = window.location.protocol
            +"//"+window.location.hostname
            +":8000"
            +"/en-US/account/logout"
        //window.location=logoutURL;//Redirect the user to logout page if he clicks on 'Never Mind', Uncomment if you want. 
        }))
        myModal.show(); // Launch it!
    })
}))

Please note that this uses the same Modal.js that is shipped with splunk (I got it from some other apps, though). I'll still provide the content of that Modal.js, here:

Finally, the HTML Code:

<dashboard script="download_test.js">
  <label>Download Test</label>
 <row id="submit_button">
    <panel id="btnPanel">
      <html>
        <div class="divTable">
            <div class="divTableBody">
              <div class="divTableRow">
                <div class="divTableCell" style="width: 35%;" align="left">
                  <div id="download_file_div" style="display: table-cell;padding-left: 5px;">
                  </div>
                </div>
                <div class="divTableCell" style="width: 65%" align="left"/>
              </div>
              </div>
          </div>
      </html>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>

This dashboard should populate the Download File Button dynamically, as soon as you open the dashboard. Then while you click on that button, it should bring some modal like below:

alt text

Just click on that download icon, and the JS will trigger the search query index=_internal |top 5 sourcetype (you can always change it according to your convenience) and bring up the SaveAs dialog box. The Default filename is exportData.csv. Click on Never Mind button and the modal will disappear. Alternatively, you can also click on the X button on the modal.

Do let me know if you have any queries. That download_test.js file was used for some internal requirements, hence it is not properly formatted. If you face any difficulties understanding it, I can try to explain it.

Finally, the HTML Code:

<dashboard script="download_test.js">
  <label>Download Test</label>
 <row id="submit_button">
    <panel id="btnPanel">
      <html>
        <div class="divTable">
            <div class="divTableBody">
              <div class="divTableRow">
                <div class="divTableCell" style="width: 35%;" align="left">
                  <div id="download_file_div" style="display: table-cell;padding-left: 5px;">
                  </div>
                </div>
                <div class="divTableCell" style="width: 65%" align="left"/>
              </div>
              </div>
          </div>
      </html>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>

This dashboard should populate the Download File Button dynamically, as soon as you open the dashboard. Then while you click on that button, it should bring some modal like below:

alt text

Just click on that download icon, and the JS will trigger the search query index=_internal |top 5 sourcetype (you can always change it according to your convenience) and bring up the SaveAs dialog box. The Default filename is exportData.csv. Click on Never Mind button and the modal will disappear. Alternatively, you can also click on the X button on the modal.

Do let me know if you have any queries. That download_test.js file was used for some internal requirements, hence it is not properly formatted. If you face any difficulties understanding it, I can try to explain it.

Is there any way to escape the results? Some of my data has commas, newlines and it is breaking the results.

do you mean your search output has newlines and commas? Can you post a sample?

The field in the search has a comma.

Street
'1, John St.' becomes 2 fields in the csv because of the ',' . This throws the whole row off.

The newlines are less of an issue as I can reliable remove them with a regex but the commas I can't. The rest of the commas are important to the structure of the row. I was wondering if it was possible to get individual field values and not just the whole row.

It does not seem to be a splunk problem.
Did you try using an extra pair of "? I mean try to populate your result as:
""1, john St."" instead of "1, John St."
See if that helps....

You can escape it, sure but it's a horrible pain in the but to do that for 100+ fields in splunk"

This is great! And I found a way to link up the hard coded search to the search on the dashboard (sid).

  1. Name the search in question ()
  2. Add 'splunkjs/mvc/tableview' to require
  3. Replace the export search var (~24) with the following:

    // Access the "default" token model
    var tokens = splunkjs.mvc.Components.get("default");
    
    // Retrieve the value of a token $mytoken$
    var download_sid = tokens.get("download_sid");
    
    // log
    console.log(download_sid);
    
    var exportSearch = splunkjs.mvc.Components.get(download_sid);
    console.log(exportSearch)
    
  4. Remove exportSearch.startSearch(); from downloadtest.js (~37)

Contributor

If you had removed the startSearch, then how are you triggering the search?

Dashboard search is named "exportdownload". I have a token that has that name in the dashboard as well (downloadsid). I can get the token it by

    // Access the "default" token model
    var tokens = splunkjs.mvc.Components.get("default");

    // Retrieve the value of a token $mytoken$
    var download_sid = tokens.get("download_sid");
    var download_file_name = tokens.get("download_file_name");

    // get the search
    var exportSearch = splunkjs.mvc.Components.get(download_sid);

Now I have the search and can get the results just like before as the dashboard has already run it. I don't create the search manager. It is referencing the search in my dashboard.

Ohh okay. I see. you are actually using the result of the search which is run by the dashboard, instead of triggering it through JS. Swell!!!!

@hallt3 - could you please elaborate more on your question, like where you want download button? If you could give screenshot and/or UI mockup that would be great to understand your question.
