timerange for the history command

Path Finder

I've noticed that running the "| history" command will return different results based on the setting of the timerangepicker. So my question is how can I define the earliest and latest values within the search bar, or in a dashboard panel's query?

| history earliest=-24h                 does not work
earliest=-24h | history                 does not work

and I'm fairly confident that anything downstream from the history command won't be able to influence how many results were delivered initially by the history command.

Re: timerange for the history command

Path Finder

I was using this in a dashboard panel to nicely display the last few searches that a user performed and I was able to set the earliest and latest in the Search module. Couple that with a Pager, Table, HTML and a redirector module I was all set.

Thanks Sideview Utils,
Paul

You would not be able to add earliest or latest value in a query (within search bar or a dashboard query) involving '|history'. The only option is the use timerangepicker (from searchbar) or from param "earliest" or latest within dashboard xml.
