Splunk Search

user defined search time in a dashboard

I'm busy designing dashboards. I really like the ability to specify the time window which appears in the search app. Is there any way to add similar functionality to a dashboard? I imagine there would be some button or text box in the dashboard to let you set the time range.

I think my mistake was putting the picker on the simple xml page. I'll try to get it working in the complex xml

Ok this is a advanced xml command. It may not work in simple xml. I haven't worked in simple xml to tell you what will work in there.

You cant use the module element in the simple dashboard xml. You can create a form view and add a TimePicker. But you'll have to create the XML with a form root element from scratch. There is no editor for a form view.

See .... http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Viz/Buildandeditforms

Alternatively you can convert your dashboard to Advanced XML and then use the module element. This is also documented at the link above.

I found this article http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/84697/how-to-set-timerangepicker-as-realtime-by-default
So I edited one of my dashboard.xml files and added the following lines:




last_30_days


I get an empty spot where the control should be. What's wrong?

yes there is It's our friendly TimeRangePicker Module. Put the content in that module and make it available for manual time selection. Thanks!!
