Getting Data In

How can I add a UI element in a dashboard to select the source?

I have created some dashboard that I use to expedite debugging of certain issues with one of our applications. The issue I am having and I'd like to improve upon is that currently the source files are hardcoded into the searches of the dashboards. I know I can do a global search and replace in the XML to get it to look at other source files but this is not very user friendly if I want to share this dashboard/tool with others. Is there a way to add a UI element to do this much like the time - drop down in dashboards & apps?

I tried to do this manually and managed to create the UI element. However I can't get the source = $newsource to be replaced in the multiple searches that create the views of the dashboard.

TIA

Hi czervos,

in addition to @somesoni2 answer, take a look at this nice example from the docs. If you follow this, you should be able to get it working.

You can create a dropdown to hold the source data (use |metadata type=sources index=main | table source) and then use the dropdown token in your search.
