Splunk Search

Use variable from views.py on a Django search manager

Hi all,

Using Splunk 6.2.2.

I want to use a single Django template for several different sources that follow the same format. I was able to set the rules in urls.py and send the expected variables to the template through views.py, as I can successfully use the variables in the content area for the template. Like:

<p class="description">Overview of the operational status for {{ pagetitle }}</p>

Now I need to use variables in search managers, for example:

    {% searchmanager
        id="search1"
        search="| inputlookup apps | search app={{ appname }}"
        cache=True
    %}

And this doesn't work.

I've seen a solution in http://answers.splunk.com/answers/181510/how-to-use-django-template-tags-inside-a-search-ma.html but I am trying to prevent doing stuff directly and JS and I'd rather have a clean Django solution.

Does anyone have any idea?

Thank you
