Splunk Search

Any intellisense enhancements / plug-ins?

Hi all - are there any intellisense plug-ins that enhance the existing Splunk search bar? A few examples of enhancements that I think would be really helpful:

  • If I start typing the name of a macro that isn't in my search history, it would be great to have it appear in the dropdown with syntax description, search details, etc.
  • Auto completion of field names would be cool, with perhaps the top 10 values appearing in the dropdown to give a preview of what data is contained within said field
  • Tag name auto completion
  • More detailed and expanded examples of usage and syntax for search keywords, with links to the appropriate help page on the Splunk site

I think for the first three points of yours they would be enhancement requests.

However, for your last point, are you aware of the documentation on the search commands

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/4.2.3/SearchReference/WhatsInThisManual

This should contain all you need, also when you do start to type the command in the search bar there will be a drop-down that appears and informs you of the usage and some examples, also there will be a link, "help", which links to the relevant page in the documentation above.
