I have a form where one enters an IP address. This address is used by several searches to fill the dashboard panels. For one panel I need the dns name and not the IP address for the search. Is it possible to do a hidden search first (and do the nslookup) and use this information inside the main search?
I can't do the nslookup inside my main search because the main search starts with a custom command that HAS to be the first command.
You could add a Search module and a ResultValueSetter module to have a variable. The only thing to ensure here is the panel which will be using this should be defined within scope of this search and resultvaluesetter. This search will be hidden.
