How to make submit button run search without change in input?

matstap

I'm trying to make a submit button that always performs a search. Right now it only runs if there is a change in input values.

Is there a way to make the submit button run the search without having to change input values?

You can try to refresh your panel query at specific interval:

<refresh>5m</refresh>

applicable for Splunk Enterprise 6.5 onward.
else try:

<option name="refresh.auto.interval">300</option>

OR
I have created sample dashboard for you with use of js.
try below code:
mydashboard.xml :

<form script="my.js">
:::
</form>

my.js :

require([
     'underscore',
     'jquery',
     'splunkjs/mvc',
     'splunkjs/mvc/tableview',
     'splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!'
 ], function(_, $, mvc, TableView) {
$("#btn-submit").on("click",function (){
var mySearch=splunkjs.mvc.Components.getInstance(search1);
mySearch.startSearch();
});
});

Give your dashboard search id="search1"
here on click of submit button it will run the search

        <query>
        | inputlookup flowmkts_lookuptable | WHERE NOT hostname="$field3$" OR eventtype="$field4$" | outputlookup flowmkts_lookuptable
        </query>
      </search>

@ashishamalviya1 is your requirement to perform search on Button click? Based on your Simple XML dashboard code seems like you want to perform a Delete operation. If so, please post a new question with your requirement details as this question is for executing Search on click of button for which the JS code also has been attached.
