Dashboards & Visualizations

XML search form - Allow wildcard only for specific dropdown input

Below search form - prevent the user from entering "wildcard " inputs in the text field.
- if user entera any wildcard or blank value in text field - it will show error message.

Now, in this form I wanted to allow the user to do wildcard searches when the dropdown input value is only "audit"

<form>
    <label>Text Box validation</label>
    <fieldset submitButton="false">
        <input type="dropdown" token="dropdown_input">
            <label>Type</label>
            <showClearButton>false</showClearButton>
            <choice value="type1">audit</choice>
            <choice value="type2">splunkd</choice>
        </input>
        <input type="text" token="selText">
            <label>Enter Log Level (like INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL </label>
            <change>
                <eval token="tokLogLevel">case(len($value$)&gt;0 AND NOT like($value$,"%*%"),$value$)</eval>
            </change>
        </input>
    </fieldset>
    <row>
        <panel>
            <html rejects="$tokLogLevel$">
                <div style="color:red;text-align:center;font-weight:bold;font-size:150%">
               Log Level does not accept asterix (*)!!!
                </div>
            </html>
            <table depends="$tokLogLevel$">
                <title>Log Level Volume</title>
                <search>
                    <query>index="_internal" sourcetype=$dropdown_input$ log_level="$tokLogLevel$"
               | stats count by log_level
               | appendpipe [| makeresults
               | eval log_level="$tokLogLevel$",count=0
               | fields - _time]
               | dedup log_level</query>
                    <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>

Hi @splunker12er,

Nice work !

The rest is easy, just duplicate the panel that includes your table and add a depends on the type1/type2 to each of those panels. One will allow wildcards and the others won't. Ez pz.

Another solution would be using double tokens : <panel depends="$token1$,$token2$"> which is also simple.

Cheers,
David
