On change of value of the main dropdown, set both the depended dropdown token and its corresponding form token as well. Following is a run anywhere example:
The <change> event handler for Dropdown 1 updates both the token and form token for Dropdown2

      <change>
        <set token="form.tokDropdown2">$value$</set>
        <set token="tokDropdown2">$value$</set>
      </change>

Please try out and confirm!

<form>
  <label>Clear Dropdown 2 Selection On Change of Dropdown 1</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="tokDropdown1" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>Dropdown 1</label>
      <choice value="a">Alpha</choice>
      <choice value="b">Beta</choice>
      <choice value="c">Charlie</choice>
      <change>
        <set token="form.tokDropdown2">$value$</set>
        <set token="tokDropdown2">$value$</set>
      </change>
      <default>a</default>
    </input>
    <input type="dropdown" token="tokDropdown2" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>Dropdown 2</label>
      <choice value="a">Apple</choice>
      <choice value="b">Banana</choice>
      <choice value="c">Cucumber</choice>
      <default>a</default>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <html>
        <div>Dropdown 1: $tokDropdown1$</div>
        <div>Dropdown 2: $tokDropdown2$</div>
      </html>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

Hi niketnilay

Works like a charm. Thank you very much!!
I missed the <set token="form.tokDropdown2">value_to_set</set>
It is hard to find this form.tokenname in the documentation.

Kind regards
Matthias

@cssmdi I know that you have not posted the Question so you can not accept the answer. But do up vote the answer/comments that helped 🙂

Do try and get the Splunk Dashboard Examples App which has several everyday use case examples including those for Drilldown, Cascaded Dropdown and Tokens etc.

Hi
No chance to do this with simple XML and without HTML and JavaScript?

I solved a similar problem using this javascript:

require([
    'splunkjs/ready!',
    'splunkjs/mvc/textinputview',
    'splunkjs/mvc/dropdownview'
  ],
  function(mvc) {
    var input1 = mvc.Components.get('input1');
    var input2 = mvc.Components.get('input2');
    input1.on('change', function() {
      input2.val(undefined);
    });
});
