Is it possible to schedule a pdf delivery for forms in Splunk 6.2? If not, is there a way to create a variable that can be used throughout the dashboard so that the pdf delivery is possible?

Hi,
I haven't found a built-in feature to do that, so I wrote a script that takes a dashboard template and a csv list of parameters in order to generate multiple individual dashboards and schedules.
see: http://answers.splunk.com/answers/200640/how-to-schedule-customized-dashboard-views-to-grou.html
I haven't published it, as it is quite ugly, but if you want I can send it to you.
Regards,
Stephane

Thanks. I lost track of this question but the need continues to arise. It would be great if you could send me a copy of your script.

Here's my script to schedule multiple PDFs based on a template and an csv list of parameters:

It's still quite ugly, but works! 🙂

This looks great! Definitely going to be trying this out. Marking this as the accepted answer since it seems to be the only possible way to accomplish this.
