Dashboards & Visualizations

Why is my dashboard query ignoring timepicker selected default values?

  <label>SYBASE TEST</label>
  <searchTemplate><My Search></searchTemplate>
  <fieldset submitButton="true">
        <input type="time" token="field1"><label></label><default><earliestTime>-1d@d</earliestTime><latestTime>@d</latestTime></default></input></fieldset>
            <table><searchPostProcess<My PostProcess 1></searchPostProcess><option name="wrap">true</option>
                <option name="rowNumbers">true</option>
                <option name="dataOverlayMode">none</option>
                <option name="drilldown">row</option>
                <option name="count">30</option>
                    <condition field="SERVER">
                        <set token="SERVER">$click.value$</set>
            <table depends="$SERVER$">
                <title>SERVER BACKUP : $SERVER$</title>
                <searchPostProcess><My Post Process 2></searchPostProcess>
                <option name="wrap">true</option>
                <option name="rowNumbers">false</option>
                <option name="dataOverlayMode">none</option>
                <option name="drilldown">row</option>
                <option name="count">30</option>

Even though I have my timepicker defaulted to "Yesterday" data, when the search is executed, it is still considering "All Time" for search execution. Could someone help me with where I am doing it wrong??

I see in your code you are using searchPostProcess, that mean you are have searchTemplate define (you haven't put in the question).

So for the searchTemplate, add following lines (As said bu chabfoli)
< earliestTime >$field1.earliest$< /earliestTime >
< latestTime >$field1.latest$< /latestTime >

Secondly, remove the < earliest > and < latest > tags for the searchPostProcess (which are just below searchPostProcess line in your example.. i.e line #24 as indicated).

Hello, to get the picker time, try adding the following inside the each element with a search or search post process:
