How can we use predict command with tstats?

Hi,

I have the following search that works against a datamodel to plot a timechart. How can I use predict command with this output?

 

 

| tstats summariesonly=true count FROM datamodel="modelname.dataset" where dataset.field="xyz"  by dataset.field, _time span=1h prestats=t  | timechart  span=1h count  by dataset.field usenull=f useother=f

 

 

If I try to do following,

 

 

| predict dataset.field

 

 

 search failed with this error.
command="predict", Unknown field: dataset.field
 
What is the correct way to do this?
 
UPDATE:
Turns out, | predict "xyz" works, but this would mean it is working just for that one value of the field.
 
Thanks

timechart is using dataset.field for values of field names in the y axis and doesn't exist any more - try predict count

Same result.

command="predict", Unknown field: count

 

With timechart everything works fine, it plots using dataset.field or even with "field" after rename. But predict doesn't seem to be taking any option as input. Only way predict works here is if I use direct value of the field.

| predict value

Have you tried renaming the field?

| tstats summariesonly=true count FROM datamodel="modelname.dataset" where dataset.field="xyz"  by dataset.field, _time span=1h prestats=t  
| rename dataset.field as field
| timechart  span=1h count by field usenull=f useother=f
| predict field

Hi @richgalloway ,

Tried that but now it just gives same error message for field.

command="predict", Unknown field: field
