Chart Drilldown issue with SimpleXML

I'm trying to configure a SimpleXML Chart Drilldown but I'm having problems using the

<link series=""> 

element.

The chart is a simple "timechart sum() by category" and the ideia is to open another form dashboard and pass the category that was clicked as an argument.

According to the documentation you can use the series attribute to get a value from the chart but when I provide the "series" attribute the tag just opens the standard drilldown (timeline search)... If i remove the attribute, it jumps to the correct dashboard but then I can only use the $click.value$ token.

I'm using this syntax:

<drilldown target="_blank">
  <link>
    <![CDATA[
       /app/myapp/newform
    ]]>
  </link>
</drilldown>

Questions

  • I can't find any sample on the documentation or here on answers on how to use with chart series, am I doing something wrong ?
  • I'm using Splunk 6.0, could it be a known issue ?
  • Does the $click$ token has other property instead of .value ?

Thanks, that info was not present in the documentation for v6.0 but $click.name2$ worked 😉

Still not sure how to use the series attribute in the link tag but, for now the issue is solved!
