Save token values so they can persist beyond session timeout

Motivator

I have a dashboard, where I can select a number of items from a list of many thousand. These selected items are added to build a token used as search criteria for subsequent searches and are used to drive dependent panels in the dashboard.

If I leave the browser and the Splunk session times out and I log in again, those token values are lost, so I have to start again to select those items I want to see.

What I want is to be able to persist those token values, e.g. to a csv, and to use load them or clear them based on a checkbox input or something like that.

Any idea how I can write tokens to a csv?

Thanks for that, I've always wondered how to use kvstore. Tutorial has a slight difference for 6.6, but works.

I am not keen to have to use Javascript and html dashboards, but I've got inputlookup/outputlookup working to the kvstore as a principle, so should be able to work those into the existing dashboard.

Can you convert it to an answer and I'll accept it.
