Why when Handling the ALL token, the code doesn't work?

We have the following - 

 

    <input type="dropdown" token="Status" searchWhenChanged="false">
      <label>Job Status</label>
      <choice value="*">ALL</choice>
      <choice value="SUCCESS">SUCCESS</choice>
      <choice value="FAILURE">FAILURE</choice>
      <choice value="RUNNING">RUNNING</choice>
      <default>*</default>
      <initialValue>*</initialValue>
    </input>

 

 

In the code the following works just fine -

 

| where STATUS = "$Status$"

 

 

Except for the ALL token as the code would be -

 

| where STATUS = "*"

 

Instead of -

 

| where STATUS = *

 

 

What can be done?

Your issue is not really with the dropdown, it is with the where command 

| where STATUS = "*"

would not find all events with any value for status.

Either use 

| search STATUS = "$Status$"

Or change the dropdown to

    <input type="dropdown" token="Status" searchWhenChanged="false">
      <label>Job Status</label>
      <choice value=".*">ALL</choice>
      <choice value="SUCCESS">SUCCESS</choice>
      <choice value="FAILURE">FAILURE</choice>
      <choice value="RUNNING">RUNNING</choice>
      <default>.*</default>
      <initialValue>.*</initialValue>
    </input>

and use 

| where match(STATUS, "$Status$")
