How tokenize Multi-select value in a token <set>?

Hello All,

I am building a dashboard in which I have a Checkbox to trigger a different search when it gets enabled, so this is how my xml looks like:

 

<input type="multiselect" token="multiselect_value" searchWhenChanged="true">
  <search>
   <query>
     |inputlookup myFile.csv | fields values
   </query>
  </search>
<delimiter> OR </delimiter>
<valuePrefix>ServiceName</valuePrefix>
<valueSuffix>"</valueSuffix>
<prefix>(</prefix>
<suffix>)</suffix>
<choise value="*">ALL</choice>
<initialValue>*</initialValue>
</input>
<input  type="checkbox" token="test_checkbox">
  <choise value="true">Enable</choise>
  <change>
     <condition match="$test_checkbox$=&quot;true&quot;">
      <set token=base_query>
       "normal search without any token"
      </set>
   </condition>
   <condition>
    <set token=base_query>
     "search with a token inside" $multiselect_value$
    </set>
   </condition>
  </change>
</input>

 

 

Now, the problem is that the $multiselect_value$ is never taken, I already tried to use the <![CDATA[$multiselect_value$]]> but is not working, is there any other way to do this? if not how could you suggest to tokenize these queries in the condition?

 

Thanks in advance! 😄

if the searches are otherwise identical, then you can just use the multiselect value with the n token to avoid formatting it,  and set the value to a single space when you don't want it to contain anything of significance.

Your search would look more or less like this:

     "search with a token inside" $multiselect_value2|n$

And the checkbox like this: 

<input  type="checkbox" token="test_checkbox">
  <choise value="true">Enable</choise>
  <change>
     <condition match="$test_checkbox$=&quot;true&quot;">
      <set token="multiselect_value2">$multiselect_value$</set>
   </condition>
   <condition>
    <set token="multiselect_value2"></set>
   </condition>
  </change>
</input>

 

That could be made slightly simpler, but that would work.
