Populating Form Dropdowns via searches

Path Finder

I have a question regarding the population of dropdowns via saved searches.

The examples in the Splunk documentation show a search similar to the following:

   <populatingSearch fieldForValue="suser" fieldForLabel="suser"><!CDATA[sourcetype=p4change | rex "user=(?<suser>\w+)@" | stats count by suser]]></populatingSearch>

However, I am slightly confused (maybe because the search in the examples is quite complex) on how this is carried out in practice.

I wish to populate the dropdown with the contents of the partner field which has up to 200 different values within the indexed data. The string being as follows:

2010/12/13@13:31:22,billstats,partner=XXXX,cde=XX,usd=XX

How would I write the example population string in a way which can parse my indexed data in a way that could populate the dropdown?
