Dashboards & Visualizations

default value for dropdown

Communicator

I have set default values for dropdown as all and have set as panel condition
Then i have a readio button for selection of both which i have set for table condition.
Now when i first time load my dashboard then by default i want to see all my panels which is not working
first i have to change value in the dropdown then only it starts working
Has anyone faced this issue ?

@surekhasplunk, I can not see default value being set for either dropdown or radio. Can you please confirm whether you are defaulting these on form load or not?

Also your table is depended on token $run$, which I am not sure as to how the same is set.

If you are on Splunk 6.5 or higher, you can use <init> section in Simple XML to set some default values for required tokens on form load

<init>
    <set token="dropuk">1</set>
    <set token="button">...
    ...
</init>

Refer to Splunk documentation: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/latest/Viz/tokens#Guidelines

@surekhasplunk, is the searchWhenChanged set to false? Can you share dashboard code?

<input type="dropdown" token="dropregion" searchWhenChanged="true">
  <label>REGION</label>
   <choice value="ALL">ALL</choice>
    <condition match="$dropregion$==&quot;ALL&quot;">
      <set token="dropuk">1</set>
      <set token="dropemea">1</set>
      <set token="dropapac">1</set>
      <set token="dropindia">1</set>
      <set token="dropglobal">1</set>
    </condition>
    <condition match="$dropregion$==&quot;UK&quot;">
      <set token="dropuk">1</set>

....

This token i have set as condition of panel dependent

<input type="radio" token="button" searchWhenChanged="true">
  <label>RUN/CHANGE BANK</label>

This token is set for table dependent.

<panel depends="$dropuk$">
  <title>RTB</title>
  <table depends="$run$">
