Usage of macro in Event types in Splunk


Hello Guys,

Good Day!!

Can anyone please help me with a question that I have. Can I use a macro in the event type in Splunk. I am trying but looks like there is some issue. 

A very small example, in my eventtype

search = index=`index`

and in the query behind my panel I have:

| stats count

I am on Splunk on prem version
