How to show more selected fields on dashboard event panel

Explorer

Hi There,

I have a dashboard I've created to explore XML trace transactions, it works fine, but when trying to find specific parts of the transaction I have to open each event and check if its the correct part, to make it easier I want to be able to include extra selected fields to show the description of the xml event.

I have extracted this field, but cant get it to show on the dashboard, it shows correctly when viewing it in search.

Query is sourcetype=[sourcetype] Description=* ActivityID=[activityid]

It currently shows like this on the dashboard

alt text

But I want it to show like this:

add this to your dashboard:

<fields>Description, host, source, sourcetype</fields>
