Is it possible to style a link in a drilldown in an XML dashboard?


Is it possible to style a link in a drilldown in an XML dashboard? I have a dashboard with links to another system. I would like for the link to change color (or something similar) after a user clicks on it so the user knows they have already visited this link.

Is this possible in an XML dashboard?

Here's my code for the drilldown:

<option name="drilldown">row</option>
<link target="_blank">$row.FolderLink|n$</link>

@mistydennis try the following run anywhere example which has a drilldown to link created. It uses jQuery to add clicked class to each clicked cell. Then CSS override is used to apply background color for such clicked cells.

<dashboard script="table_clicked_cell.js">
  <label>Table Drilldown</label>
          #tableWithDrilldownColor tbody tr td.clicked{
            background: #99C5D7;
      <table id="tableWithDrilldownColor">
          <query>index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd log_level=* component=*
| chart count by component log_level limit=5 useother=f
| head 10</query>
        <option name="count">20</option>
        <option name="dataOverlayMode">none</option>
        <option name="drilldown">cell</option>
        <option name="percentagesRow">false</option>
        <option name="rowNumbers">false</option>
        <option name="totalsRow">false</option>
        <option name="wrap">true</option>
          <link target="_blank">https://google.com</link>

Following is the required JS file table_clicked_cell.js

 ], function (_, $, mvc, TableView) {
     console.log("Script Started");
     $(document).on("click","#tableWithDrilldownColor table tbody tr td",function(){

Please try out and confirm!
