How to make a single panel in a dashboard autorun?

Communicator

Is there a way to make a single panel in a dashboard autorun? I know I can set the refresh field in the dashboard itself to make the whole thing refresh on a timer, but I only want a single panel to do so.

Hey brajaram,

You can refer the link below:
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML

Panel refresh

 <option name="refresh.auto.interval">60</option>

Also works with tokens if you want to allow the user to specify with a dashboard dropdown.

   <option name="refresh.auto.interval">$refresh_interval$</option>

Dashboard input example:

     <input type="dropdown" token="refresh_interval" searchWhenChanged="true">
       <label>Panel Refresh Override</label>
       <choice value="60">1 Minute</choice>
       <choice value="300">5 Minutes</choice>
       <default>300</default>
     </input>

Let me know if this helps!!

Hi.

¿Whats the new way to do that if...

" $refresh_interval$"

...was deprecated?

Thanks in advance.

Which version of Splunk are you running on? The later versions allow you to independently execute searches in each panel. This can be achieved by editing the dashboard and editing the panel search then choosing to execute the searches at a scheduled frequency.

I'm on version 6.5.3. Where in the documentation would I find being able to execute the searches at a scheduled frequency? I saw the refresh tab in panel reference, how do I do that for the specific searches?

My code is:

    <panel>
      <single>
        <title>Current Logged in Count</title>
        <search>
          <query>index=... | stats dc(uid)</query>
          <earliest>-5m</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
