Splunk Search

cron search in dashboard panel

Hello,

I am trying to create a search query, which i will later transfer to dashboard panel. This query is monitoring if files exist in folder (folder should be empty). Problem is that during weekend files from that folder are not picked up. So if i transfer query to a dashboard it would show false alert (because it is normal that files are waiting in folder during weekend). Question is:
Can i set up a time for dashboard query to ignore saturday and sunday, but work on other days, something like cron?

Best,
- F.

Hi Fleshwriter,
you have to insert in your search the exclusion of Saturday and Monday, something like this:

your_search NOT (date_wday="saturday" OR date_wday="sunaday")
| ...
