Splunk Search

How do you build a panel with different source inputs?


I am trying to build a panel where I would like to input the source and present in a radial guaze.

The simple query looks something like this:

index=x host=y source = /logs/zzz* "keyword"| |timechart span=1m count as keyword

And in there I want to be able to change the "zzz" to different options as per input.

Any advice?

Why not keep them all and use the Trellis feature?

Hi @pranay04

To do this you need to edit the dashboard and "add an input". Edit thatinput to set a token called for example "source".

Then in your panel, update the search to look like this:

index=x host=y source = $source$* "keyword |timechart span=1m count as keyword

Here is some more info: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/Viz/tokens#Using_tokens_in_a_search

Good luck
