I am creating a dashboard which shows results based on search range.
Problem Statement :
1. user fills a form in the web application.
2. Logs into Splunk dashboard and looks for logs by choosing "today" in time picker
3. no results comes up as the logs were tagged under a day before time stamp.
4. when user changes time to yesterday or last 2 days, results are shown.
So I want to enhance the user search range + 1 day before in the back end. I tried to do but it is is not working as expected.
What I tried:
<earliest>$shared_time.earliest$-24h</earliest> earliest time in screenshot was a typo, anyway thats not a working solution.
@bharathdoitnow, you would need to pass on the Time input tokens to a dummy search and then use
which is default token for
<search> handler. PS: As per your question you need to show
-24h data along with selected time range, which means you don't need to adjust
latest time just the
earliest time. You can also refer to my previous answer for details (one more solution approach using
Please try the following run anywhere dashboard and confirm:
<form> <label>Adjust Search Earliest Time</label> <fieldset submitButton="false"> <input type="time" token="tokTime"> <label></label> <default> <earliest>-24h@h</earliest> <latest>now</latest> </default> </input> </fieldset> <search> <query>| makeresults </query> <done> <set token="tokAdjustedEarliestTimeString">$job.earliestTime$</set> <eval token="tokAdjustedEarliestTimeEpoch">relative_time(strptime($job.earliestTime$,"%Y/%m/%dT%H:%M:%S"),"-24h")</eval> </done> <earliest>$tokTime.earliest$</earliest> <latest>$tokTime.latest$</latest> </search> <row> <panel> <title>tokAdjustedEarliestTimeString: "$tokAdjustedEarliestTimeString$" | tokAdjustedEarliestTimeEpoch= "$tokAdjustedEarliestTimeEpoch$"</title> <table> <search> <query>index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd log_level!=INFO | timechart count</query> <earliest>$tokAdjustedEarliestTimeEpoch$</earliest> <latest>$tokTime.latest$</latest> </search> </table> </panel> </row> </form>
