Splunk Search

iplocation/geostats to show events from statistics tab.


Hi, I'm trying to view event related to a specific country or city based on the source ip,so i ran the following query.

index=firewalls | iplocation allfields=true src_ip | stats count by Country City

which works fine by giving me a table like:

Country | City | count
Albania | Durres | 5
Argentina | Abel | 7

when i click any of the city or country to view the events related to that specific region, the search extends like
index=firewalls Country=Albania | iplocation allfields=true src_ip |

which return zero results because the filed Country comes before iplocation command. i know i can search it manually by entering it at the end of the search query like.
index=firewalls | iplocation allfields=true src_ip |search Country=Albania

but im running the query on a dsashboard which returns the count for each country ,city and i want to view the event directly by clicking the respective country from the dashboard. How can i do that ? Pls advice

In a dashboard, you could use the above search as a base search and then do postprocessing to select the country from a dropdown.
