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 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:
I get an empty spot where the control should be. What's wrong?
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.
Alternatively you can convert your dashboard to Advanced XML and then use the module element. This is also documented at the link above.
