Time Picker issue with Save Report Reference

Hi,

 

I have a complicated dashboard that is based off of scheduled saved report. All menus and panels are fed off of one report. This report already has _time field. I am loking back max 30 days of data and this reflects in my adjustment in time picker as well. I want to be able to use timepicker in dashboard when I filter for various times. When I use saved search and token in below code, all works fine. But when I use saved search a a reference, tme picker does not work. What am I missing. Thanks in advance!!

This worked for me.  My time picker input "token" value is "field3".

Change:

<search ref="my report"></search>

to:

<search ref="my report">
  <earliest>$field3.earliest$</earliest>
  <latest>$field3.latest$</latest>
</search>

Hello @mbasharat,

I've found a workaround by using the "where" command before a panel subsearch.

Example in your case :

...
    <panel>
      <title>Events Timechart</title>
      <chart>
        <search base="Main_Search">
          <query>where _time>=$timerange.earliest$ AND _time<=$timerange.latest$
| search UserType="$accttype$" AND User="$user$" AND Priority="$priority$" AND Result="$results$"
| timechart count</query>
        </search>
...

 Try to add in you query : "where _time>=$timerange.earliest$ AND _time<=$timerange.latest$"

Unfortunately, for timelines per example, I noticed that the display do not automatically scale the panel to the dashboard time range but the data that appears does match it.

Regards,
Manyl

Hello @mbasharat,

I am experiencing the same issue.
Even if I set a time range shorter than the one set in the report, the panel does not take it in consideration.
Did you find another way to make it work ?

I hope someone could answer to help us.

Regards,

Manyl

1. create a background search in order to convert timepicker into epoch time and create token values for new convereted fields.

</search>
<search>
<query>|makeresults</query>
<earliest>$period_token2.earliest$</earliest>
<latest>$period_token2.latest$</latest>
<progress>
<eval token="toearliest">strptime($job.earliestTime$,"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%3N%z")</eval>
<eval token="tolatest">strptime($job.latestTime$,"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%3N%z")</eval>
<set token="jobearliest">$job.earliestTime$</set>
<set token="joblatest">$job.latestTime$</set>
</progress>
</search>


Then, add this logic into your panels 

| eval earliest = $toearliest$
| eval latest =if($tolatest$ <= 0, now(),$tolatest$)
| eval datefield=_time
| where datefield >= earliest AND datefield <= latest


if you want, you can also choose a different field other than _time. Just remember to convert that field into epoch time. 

 

Hope this helps!
