Splunk Search

Dashboard Question

I have a request to create a dashboard that among other things has a panel that text can be input into and written to a file. I have not come across anything in the docs that covers this and I am not sure it is even possible. Any suggestions?

Sure, you could create a form with a text field, this value could be tokenised and passed into another search further down the page that uses outputlookup or one of the other output commands to save it to a file.

Otherwise you could create your own search command that handles all this for you, here are some links for reading;

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/SearchReference/outputlookup
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/Search/Writeasearchcommand
http://splunk-base.splunk.com/apps/64805/splunk-dashboard-examples

Finally, if you were really brave you could write your own module that handles this 🙂
