Communicator

Hi,

Do we have a feature in splunk to add 1st row.field1 from 2 different panels and sum it in another panel.

i have in panel one or table 1 in dashboard which looks like below
col1 col2 col3 col4
A 1 1 1 1
B 2 2 2 2

I have 2nd table in the same dashboard which looks like below
col1 col2 col3 col4
A 3 3 3 3
B 4 4 4 4

I have one more tale which shoud look like below. Addition of col2 first row from both tables, addition of col3 of 1 row of both tables etc.
col1 col2 col3 col4
A 4 4 4 4
B 6 6 6 6

Ok, let me give two options, hopefully one of them you can use. It uses run anywhere searches based on Splunk's _internal index. You can maybe correct/change them as per what you currently have but keep on using _internal index instead.

1) Option 1 : Using append with head 1. Here Post processing may be applicable provided all three panel searches can be derived out of same base search). Please confirm if this is so, otherwise it is better to use append (or appendcols).

2) Option 2: Use progress or done search event handler to get the default $result.<fieldName>$ token to fetch field values from first row of results and assign to tokens. This is what you require for your use case.

Following is the run anywhere dashboard for attached screenshot with both options in separate rows.

@surekhasplunk, definitely possible through couple of options. However, which one is the best depends on what search queries you are running for table 1 and table 2. Would it be possible for you to share? Maybe call your fields in query as col1 col2 col3 and col4 as per sample data (if required). Or else give the output again with correct field names.

Its not possible for me to share the queries is it possible for you to just share a sample query with above data and fields.
