How to create a drilldown for a single value panel?

Hi folks,

I'm trying to create a drilldown for a single value panel, but it doesn't seem to be in the options. I just want my user to be able to click on the value, and it will take him/her to another dashboard, as I have with other types of panels, like the pie chart. There would be no token or anything to pass. It would just bring the user to another existing dashboard (drilldown link), that is related to the value. I don't see anything in the options, and searches here didn't have results.

You're correct, the drilldown is not available with Single value panel. And since you just want to redirect to different dashboard, this is gonna just work fine for you. You can set the dashboard to be displayed for underlabel and afterlabel.

<single>
        <title>Single Value Drilldown</title>
        <search>
          <query>index=_internal | stats count</query>
          <earliest>$timerange.earliest$</earliest>
          <latest>$timerange.latest$</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">all</option>
        <option name="afterLabel">Click Here</option>
        <option name="underLabel">OR Click Here</option>
        <option name="linkFields">underlabel, afterlabel</option>
        <option name="linkView">YourSecondDashboard</option>
      </single>

How can you make this drilldown to go to a new window?

I don't believe there was any option with this construct (linkView, Splunk 6.3 or before). However, If you're using Splunk 6.4+, you get <drilldown> element as child of single value visualization which allows target attribute to open drilldown in new/same window. http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.0/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML#drilldown
