Dashboards & Visualizations

Why does my dashboard time picker default to use only the earliest time in my token's date time range?

New Member

I have added a time picker to my dashboard with the following default range configured:

   <fieldset submitButton="false" autoRun="false">
        <input type="time" token="Trial 15" searchWhenChanged="true">
          <label>Start thru end of first entity load:</label>
          <default>
            <earliest>1555779600</earliest>
            <latest>1555870800</latest>
          </default>
        </input>
      </fieldset>

But each time the dashoard loads, only the earliest time is used:
alt text
The time range is stored, but the only way to load the data with it is to manually select advanced mode and click apply there:
alt text

How do I fix this so that the entire range is used by default?

Hi alfaconsult,

In token, put a variable name without space, for example:

<fieldset submitButton="false" autoRun="false">
         <input type="time" token="time_token" searchWhenChanged="true">
           <label>Start thru end of first entity load:</label>
           <default>
             <earliest>1555779600</earliest>
             <latest>1555870800</latest>
           </default>
         </input>
</fieldset>

Let me know !

Hi alfaconsult,
just some quick questions to better understand:

  • if you click on the "Since" button and choose "Between", do you see both your dates?
  • the results you have are all in the requested period or outside it?

Bye.

No, if I click "Between" it defaults to the date of my earliest time to the current date.

The results I am looking for are in the requested period. Instead of using the end date that I set, Splunk uses the current date/time.
