Splunk Search

How do I output the Search Managers results value?


var deps = [
require(deps, function(mvc) {
// Load individual components
var SearchManager = require("splunkjs/mvc/searchmanager");

    // Create the search manager
    var mysearch = new SearchManager({
        id: "search1",
        app: "search",
         earliest_time: "-7d@d",
                     latest_time: "now",
        cache: false,
        search: "index="test_summary" | eval result = 99999 | fields result" 

    mysearch.on('search:failed', function(properties) {
        // Print the entire properties object
        console.log("FAILED:", properties);

    mysearch.on('search:progress', function(properties) {
        // Print just the event count from the search job
        console.log("IN PROGRESS.\nEvents so far:", properties.content.eventCount);
       $("#aa").text("In progress with " + properties.content.eventCount + " events...");

    mysearch.on('search:done', function(properties) {
        // Print the search job properties
        console.log("DONE!\nSearch job properties:", properties.content);            

I want to output the result to the spl ("# aa").

Re: How do I output the Search Managers results value?


Typically you would create some kind of View Object (be it a table or chart of some kind, that would reference the manager, and would render the results in an element.)

The Web Framework Docs have a few examples of this. It looks like you followed the Search Progress Events Example but it sounds like you would be interested in the Basic Template Example which renders events in a ChartView and an EventsViewerView. Or this other one that uses a TableView.
