Setting token programatically when token has selectFirstChoice=true

Setting tokens in Splunk programatically in Splunk via JS is pretty easy, as documented at:

https://dev.splunk.com/enterprise/docs/developapps/webframework/binddatausingtokens/getandsettokenva...

However, the code snippet at that link appears to have no effect on tokens with true

I have developed the following workaround...

require([
  "underscore",
  "jquery",
  "splunkjs/mvc",
  "splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!"
], function (_, $, mvc) {
  var tokens = mvc.Components.get("default");
  var tokenName = "myTokenName";
  var tokenValue = "myTokenValue";

  tokens._events[`change:${myTokenName}`][0].context.attributes.selectFirstChoice = false

  tokens.set(myTokenName, myTokenValue);
});

Evidently however, this is a hack, as it reaches into the _events attribute which is marked as not a public API.
Thus, I would like a more elegant solution. Any ideas?

Cheers 🙂

@delewis13 not a direct answer to the question, though have a look at this app: Splunk Dev For All
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4104/

It has a good walkthrough no how to use JS with Splunk to do this sort of task.
