I would like to add an item to the menu options covered on this page of documentation:

Is this possible?

Path Finder

Not in a good way.

The mouseclick events are in $SPLUNK_HOME/share/splunk/search_mrsparkle/exposed/js/views/shared/eventsviewerdrilldown/SegmentationDrilldown.js

Your modifications to this would be overwritten by splunk upgrades.

Alternatively, you might (with a little jquery DOM magic) locate the

    that contains an
and insert your own
  • into it at page-render (actually at item-click) time.
  • Something along the lines of:
    $("a.curr_inc_val").parent().parent().append('<li>Your Item here</li>')
    which you can test with a reasonable Javascript console like Firebug.
