I'm currently searching for a way to use the new Splunk 6.5.0 feature "query formatting" on a German keyboard. When I switch my German keyboard to US it's working like expected using CTRL+\ (on german keyboard "#"). When switching to German it's neither working the CTRL+AltGr+"\" (right to 0) nor with "#" key 😕
@tbaublys thanks for the hint regarding Chrome and Firefox... my work has the policy to not use Chrome 😞
@Splunk will the feature be enabled in Firefox someday? Currently working with 7.0.2
A similar question was asked by a customer who uses a Norwegian Keyboard (below):
There is a §| key above the Tab key (left of the 1) and that produces the \ character within Splunk.
Pressing Ctrl+§| enables Search Bar formatting in Splunk 6.5.x. This was confirmed to work by the customer.
That is the same physical location of the ^ character on a German T2 Keyboard
well, the workaround without 3rd party sw is to switch to US using STRG+SHIFT
before hitting us: CTRL+\ = de: CTRL+#
and switch back using STRG+SHIFT
I might try to open a call for it.
I can't tell you directly but I am certain that you can use a keyboard mapping tool to reprogram the key sequence of your choice to send the key sequence necessary. It is overkill but it should work. Try any of these:
