How to work with javascript in splunk

Communicator

Hi,

I am working with simple xml and i want to hide some html line using javascript.
I have a simple java script file how to make it work on splunk.
I am not that much into javascript.
do we need to add this:

   require([    
    "splunkjs/ready!",    
    "splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!"    
], function(

Simple javascript code is like this :

<script type="text/javascript" src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>

<script>
 $(document).ready(function() {

    $('.faq_question').click(function() {

        if ($(this).parent().is('.open')){
            $(this).closest('.faq').find('.faq_answer_container').animate({'height':'0'},500);
            $(this).closest('.faq').removeClass('open');

            }else{
                var newHeight =$(this).closest('.faq').find('.faq_answer').height() +'px';
                $(this).closest('.faq').find('.faq_answer_container').animate({'height':newHeight},500);
                $(this).closest('.faq').addClass('open');
            }

    });

});
</script>

Sorry if this question sounds silly.

You can't add javascript directly to a Simple XML Dashboard. Create a file in $APP_HOME/appserver/static, let's call it "dashboard.js". Place this code into it:

require( "jquery", function($) {

$(document).ready(function() {

 $('.faq_question').click(function() {

     if ($(this).parent().is('.open')){
         $(this).closest('.faq').find('.faq_answer_container').animate({'height':'0'},500);
         $(this).closest('.faq').removeClass('open');

         }else{
             var newHeight =$(this).closest('.faq').find('.faq_answer').height() +'px';
             $(this).closest('.faq').find('.faq_answer_container').animate({'height':newHeight},500);
             $(this).closest('.faq').addClass('open');
         }

 });

});

});

Once you have that in place with the correct permissions, restart Splunk web. This will pull the Javascript and work accordingly.
