How to change the output of a textbox based on user input and use it in search?


I have two textboxes i) holds the keyword ii) hosts the exact flag

If user adds 0 in exact keyword flag - The the search should show the keyword added in first textbox as *keyword* otherwise it should show simply keyword. I tried Macro but it didn't work. Any ideas?

  <label>Test Dashboard</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="text" token="kwsearch">
    <input type="text" token="exact">
          <query>|makeresults | fields - _time | eval Result = `make_keyword($kwsearch$, $exact$)`</query>
        <option name="count">10</option>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
        <option name="refresh.display">progressbar</option>

My Macro is:

Hello @nabeel652,

I just testet your dashboard. I believe the root of your troubles are missing quotation marks.

This will NOT work:

| makeresults | eval Result=test

This will also NOT work:

| makeresults | eval Result="\""+test+"\""

I got it working by putting quotation marks around $kwsearch$ without using a macro:

<query>|makeresults | fields - _time | eval Result=if($exact$==0,"\"$kwsearch$\"","$kwsearch$")</query>
