When you set the time ticker with "<input type = time xxxx" in dashboard
and also set the time modifier in "<searchTemplate" for each panel,
is it correct to understand the setting in each panel overrides the setting in the fieldset?
I did a test and seems that each setting in the panel is prioritized within splunk.
Yes, I think it basically the time range which is set on search directly takes precedence in version 5.
However, if you set the time earlier than the one on the search, it doesn't follow the time range which is set in the search.
Here is my result.
Search: earliest=-7d@d latest=@d index=A sourcetype=B | timechart count by type
timerange picker: All time -> takes time from search string = -7d
timerange picker: Last 7days -> same result
timerange picker: Last 24hous -> timerange was last 7days but it broke into every 30mins span on each day, and I got the following message, "Search generated too much data for the current display configuration, results have been truncated."
timerange picker: Last 4hours -> same timerange but span changed to every 5mins.
timerange picker: Last 60minutes -> same timerange but span changed to every minute.
