How to show events from bar chart in dashboard?

Disclaimer: Totally new to Splunk.  Started using it this week and nobody else in my office knows Splunk either.

I created dashboards for Windows events like this one:  EventCode=4625 | timechart count by host sep=1hr.  That shows a nice bar chart which gives information, like the number of events, when hovering the mouse over a bar.  I want to either/or:  1.) click on a bar and show all the event(s) information.  2.) display all the events in another panel in the dashboard.  Thank you for you assistance.

@lutzmw - What you are looking for is dashboard drilldown.

Splunk provides various drilldowns, including link to search (which will show you relevant events), link to the dashboard to open a new dashboard and set token to open a new panel in the same dashboard.

Please refer to - https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.6/Viz/DrilldownIntro

 

I hope this helps!!!

Clicking on a chart to get an effect is known as a drilldown.

There are a couple of options to consider

  1. drilldown to a link which could open up a new tab in the browser on a different dashboard displaying the information you want
  2. drilldown to set up some tokens which are then used by another panel in your dashboard displaying the information you want

In either case, you need to define another panel with the information you want.

Your search for this panel can include a filter which uses a token (set by the drilldown, either as a token, or passed as a token in the link URL).
