I have a report that runs once a day that generates a PDF chart based on a view. When I load the view in my browser and click "Generate PDF" it takes approximately 3 seconds and the PDF is successfully rendered in my browser (Chrome). However the chart in the emailed report has no data, just the axis.
I'm using Splunk 5.0.1 and I don't have the PDF server app installed.
I had a similar issue, 2 panes out of 6 on a dashboard would have no data if a chart or 'no results' if a table.
Creating a saved search and using a searchName element instead of a searchString for the table/chart panes resolved it.
The saved searches are also scheduled, but it also worked on the first run before a scheduled search ran. I don't know if that mattered or not.
Same here (version 6.1.3).
I had two online searches, not overly complicated, but they didn't show up in the sheduled reports (sent via the sendemail command).
Moving them to saved searches (not sheduled, jobs/artifacts deleted), the pdf now includes the data.
I have the same problem. It seems like a race condition as the PDF gets generated before the data is fully downloaded, so it's a matter of which finished first the data arriving from Splunk and how long the PDF takes to render.
The issue I am seeing is that I have multiple saved searches that run once a day at the same time. I have a dashboard that has a panel for each of the searches. I created a scheduled PDF to be run well after the saved searches are run. The PDF that gets delivered only has data in the panels that have less than 100 or so rows (this is just a guess). Empirically what I've seen is 10 rows of results show up fine but anything over 180 rows of data does not show up at all.
I have not found a solution for this.
I have the same issue. My PDF is shown correctly in my broser (firefox) x and y axis and leganda are shown, but no graphic. Generate PDF is based on a dashboard:
