Splunk Enterprise fill tokens with JavaScript


Hello everyone,

I have created a Splunk form which has some html form inputs to update a lookup for me. To get the values from the html form inputs I'm using a Javascript code, such as the one bellow:

], function( mvc,
var tokens = mvc.Components.get("default");

$('#addentry').on("click", function (e){

var field1 = $("input[name=field1]").val();
tokens.set("tok_add_field1", field1);


Once addentry button is clicked the token is filled by the Javascript and a base search should run to update the value in a lookup. Problem is, after the token which the search needs is filled it still doesn't run (It runs if I go to Edit -> Source -> Cancel).



<search id="add_results">
| inputlookup example.csv
| append [ makeresults | eval field1="$tok_add_field1$"]
| outputlookup example.csv
<set token="confirmation">Search executed!</set>

Could someone please tell me what is missing in my search so that it is automatically executed once the tokens are filled?  Thanks a lot!

Additionally: I have noticed that once a Splunk input is filled, adding "?" to the URL, javascript will no longer update the tokens. Maybe a problem with the interaction between JS and browser.
