Dashboards & Visualizations

Is it possible to pass token values into a macro?

Path Finder

I have a dashboard with multiple panels. Each panel has a different search, which i want to replace with a macro.
The problem is, i want to be able to filter with tokens.

My question is, can i have a Macro that has token values within it, that can be passed from the inputs on the dashboard.


Macro "Username ": index=ad source=userscan username=$username$

Dashboard input token = $username$

Panel search: "Username"

I cannot currently get this to work. Wondering do i need to do something another way?
