How to pass multiple values to one argument in a macro?

Hi All,

I need help from you.
I have a macro with 4 arguments(ASSIGNEE,Branch,month,year). Out of those 4 arguments, 2 are multi value fields(ASSIGNEE,Branch).
Both these "ASSIGNEE" and "Branch" arguments receive inputs from a multi-select field. But, when i select more than 2 values in multi-select, then it starts throwing an error.
Please help me to achieve passing multiple values to the same arguments.

Thanks ...

When you select multiple values from multiselect then it will return string with space separated if delimiter not specified.

Please check below example where I have specified comma as a delimiter and used in search panel. In search I'm passing this value after converting it to multivalue.

<form>
  <label>Test</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="multiselect" token="sourcetype">
      <label>sourcetype</label>
      <fieldForLabel>sourcetype</fieldForLabel>
      <fieldForValue>sourcetype</fieldForValue>
      <search>
        <query>index=_internal | stats count by sourcetype</query>
        <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
        <latest>now</latest>
      </search>
      <delimiter> ,</delimiter>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <table>
        <title>$sourcetype$</title>
        <search>
          <query>|makeresults | eval sourcetype="$sourcetype$",sourcetype=split(sourcetype,",") | `test1(sourcetype)`</query>
          <earliest>-60m@m</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
      </table>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

Macro:

Name: test1(1)

Definition: eval In_sourcetype=$sourcetype$,count=mvcount(In_sourcetype)

Arguments: sourcetype

Let me know for further assistance.

Thanks
