Dashboards & Visualizations

How to provoke a specific code depending on value of input?

New Member

Hello,
I am trying to code a dashboard on Splunk.
I have a value of an input and would like to realize a specific code if the result of my input is A and another one if the input is B.
I was looking at the if condition but I didn't find anything correct.
Could you help me?

Thanks a lot.

@telecomdesign,

If you are looking for executing searches with minor changes with respect to field values , you can use tokens from the input panel.

Reference : https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.0/Viz/tokens#Define_tokens_for_form_inputs

If your searches are entirely different, then probably create two panels with respective searches and show/hide one of them based on your inputs.

Please find a run anywhere example with dropdown input. You could also use radio buttons or other inputs

Just copy & paste the xml to a dashboard and it should work

<form>
  <label>Conditional Inputs</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="inputs">
      <label>field1</label>
      <choice value="search1">Input A</choice>
      <choice value="search2">Input B</choice>
      <initialValue>search1</initialValue>
      <change>
        <condition value="search1">
          <set token="search_one"></set>
          <unset token="search_two"></unset>
        </condition>
        <condition value="search2">
          <unset token="search_one"></unset>
          <set token="search_two"></set>
        </condition>
      </change>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel depends="$search_one$">
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>| makeresults| eval param="SEARCH1"</query>
          <earliest>-15m</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
      </table>
    </panel>
        <panel depends="$search_two$">
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>| makeresults| eval param="SEARCH2"</query>
          <earliest>-15m</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
      </table>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>
