XML disappearing after being edited using the UI.

Contributor

This is a test dashboard Im working on :

<dashboard>
  <label>Testing</label>
  <row>
    <panel depends="$hide_panel$">
      <event>
        <title>Test Panel</title>
        <search>
          <query>sourcetype=bluecoat:proxysg:access:syslog news | head 1</query>
          <earliest>rt</earliest>
          <latest>rt</latest>
          <progress>
            <condition match="'job.resultCount' == 0">
              <unset token="hide_panel"></unset>
            </condition>
            <condition>
              <set token="hide_panel">true</set>
            </condition>
          </progress>
        </search>
        <option name="table.sortDirection">asc</option>
        <option name="list.drilldown">full</option>
        <option name="list.wrap">1</option>
        <option name="maxLines">5</option>
        <option name="raw.drilldown">full</option>
        <option name="rowNumbers">0</option>
        <option name="table.drilldown">all</option>
        <option name="table.wrap">1</option>
        <option name="type">list</option>
        <option name="count">10</option>
      </event>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>

when I edit it using the UI, for example the time period, then save it, some of the code gets deleted and it ends up like this:

<dashboard>
           <label>Testing</label>
      <row>
        <panel depends="$hide_panel$">
          <event>
            <title>Test Panel</title>
            <search>
              <query>sourcetype=bluecoat:proxysg:access:syslog news | head 1</query>
              <earliest>rt-30s</earliest>
              <latest>rt</latest>
            </search>
            <option name="table.sortDirection">asc</option>
            <option name="list.drilldown">full</option>
            <option name="list.wrap">1</option>
            <option name="maxLines">5</option>
            <option name="raw.drilldown">full</option>
            <option name="rowNumbers">0</option>
            <option name="table.drilldown">all</option>
            <option name="table.wrap">1</option>
            <option name="type">list</option>
            <option name="count">10</option>
          </event>
        </panel>
      </row>
    </dashboard>

All the code for the panel hide/reveal has gone.
Anyone know why?
And also, I cant seem to get this to hide/reveal when using a 5 minute window either.

Thanks!

Do you see the same issues if you change <dashboard> and </dashboard> to <form> and </form>?

Also, what version of Splunk are you using and what browser?

Yes, the same thing happens when using form.
Im using Splunk 6.5.1612 in Splunk Cloud

Are you on 6.5 or later version of Splunk? If not <progress> should be named as <preview>

@mrgibbon, maybe the token $job.resultCount$ is not available with Real-Time searches, as for me the token never sets even though there is an event returns. Although the Search Event Handlers did not disappear for me. I was able to set token with historical time selection not Real-Time. Following is a run-anywhere example which runs historical search for last 30 sec and refreshes every 30 sec.

PS: You should ideally make it last 1 minute i.e. greater than the refresh interval which is 30 sec.

  <row>
    <panel depends="$hide_panel$">
      <event>
        <title>Test Panel</title>
        <search id="mySearch">
          <query>index="_internal" sourcetype="splunkd" | head 1</query>
          <earliest>-30s</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
          <refresh>30s</refresh>
          <refreshType>delay</refreshType>
        </search>
        <option name="table.sortDirection">asc</option>
        <option name="list.drilldown">full</option>
        <option name="list.wrap">1</option>
        <option name="maxLines">5</option>
        <option name="raw.drilldown">full</option>
        <option name="rowNumbers">0</option>
        <option name="table.drilldown">all</option>
        <option name="table.wrap">1</option>
        <option name="type">list</option>
        <option name="count">10</option>
      </event>
    </panel>
  </row>

@mrgibbon, following is an example of Real-Time search with Event field returned from search and condition to show/hide panel based on $result.Event$ instead of $job.resultCount$. Please try with the following as well:

  <row>
    <panel depends="$hide_panel$">
      <event>
        <title>Test Panel</title>
        <search id="mySearch">
          <query>index="_internal" sourcetype="splunkd" "WARN"| head 1| table _raw| rename _raw as Event</query>
          <earliest>rt-30s</earliest>
          <latest>rtnow</latest>
          <progress>
            <condition match="isnull($result.Event$)">
              <unset token="hide_panel"></unset>
            </condition>
            <condition>
              <set token="hide_panel">true</set>
            </condition>
          </progress>
        </search>
        <option name="table.sortDirection">asc</option>
        <option name="list.drilldown">full</option>
        <option name="list.wrap">1</option>
        <option name="maxLines">5</option>
        <option name="raw.drilldown">full</option>
        <option name="rowNumbers">0</option>
        <option name="table.drilldown">all</option>
        <option name="table.wrap">1</option>
        <option name="type">list</option>
        <option name="count">10</option>
      </event>
    </panel>
  </row>

If these do not work your should tag this issue as BUG and also reach out to Splunk Support for assistance.

Thanks for the help and the code, it works, but the panel is on the screen all the time.
Cheers

Re: XML disappearing after being edited using the UI.

@mrgibbon, I had missed <condition match="isnull($result.Event$)"> section in my code. Also I have provided a run anywhere search where INFO node is always present in splunkd logs. I have changed it to WARN which occurs less often in Splunk. Please try out above code and test with your own search.

Also if issue with Real-Time searches removing Search handler continue please update here and raise to Splunk Support.
