Dashboards & Visualizations

Which data type is allowed for using a wildcard?


I'm a rookie at splunk and trying to implement a wildcard search via input type text in a dashboard. Unfortunately it seems, that the
constellation "Wildcard", "input type="text"" and data type "UINT32" won't work.
I've tested the search with other data types and it worked well. Has anybody made same experience with this and even more, has found a way to solve this kinda problem?
Please, dont ask why "UINT32" is used, it was a decision made by our company.

Thanks so far!

If your question is can I search for a literal asterisk, then the answer is no. You'll have to search more broadly and then trim down the results with another filtering command that can handle a literal asterisk, such as regex like this:

| regex _raw="hello\*world"
