Is there any way to remember user's initial selection in the filters(multiselect,dropdown) , so that the filter values are retained when they visit the splunk dashboard next time.

Hi @HHMM,

You have to store "state of filters" previously selected by a user in KV store AND load filters with default values which are already stored.

Steps:

  1. Create KVStore lookup with required fields.
  2. Create a search which is executed when any filters change on the dashbaord. This search will store filter value in lookup.(Logged in User wise)
  3. Create a search which is executed on load of dashboard. This search will get all filter value from KVStore lookup and set them into token.
  4. Use tokens as default value in all respective filters. So when user visit again the same dashboard then dashboard have previously selected filters.

Let me know for further assistance.

Thanks

You can set the user initial as default so whenever a user sees a dashboard. In order to make it retain you need to make it as a default values.
