Refine your search:

I have create a small form from Sample app and placed in following location with global access $(SPLUNK_HOME)\etc\users\admin\<app>\local\data\ui\

I have updated XML file for this $(SPLUNK_HOME)\etc\users\admin\<app>\local\data\ui\nav\default.xml ...

    <collection label="Dashboards">
        <view name="error" Default="true"/>
        <view name="simple"/>


and $(SPLUNK_HOME)\etc\users\admin\<app>\local\data\ui\views\simple.xml

I can see my error dashboard but not simple that contain form based data.

Here is the content of simple.xml

    <label>Simple Radio</label>

    <!-- Define master search template, with replacement tokens delimited with $ -->
    <!-- <searchTemplate>index=sample from="$from$"</searchTemplate> -->

        <!-- Define a radio button list, populated from a search. searchWhenChanged propagates any change in selection immediatly to the results. -->
        <!-- <input type="radio" token="from" searchWhenChanged="true"> -->
        <input type="radio" searchWhenChanged="true">
             <label>View Result</label>
            <choice value="Hourly">Last 1 Hour</choice>
            <choice value="Hourly12">Last 12 Hours</choice>
        <choice value="Hourly24">Last 24 Hours</choice>
        <!-- <populatingSearch fieldForValue="from" fieldForLabel="from"><![CDATA[index=sample | top from | stats count by from]]></populatingSearch> -->

        <!-- output the results as a 50 row events view -->
            <option name="count">50</option>

I just want to display the form - not doing actual search

Any Idea what is wrong ?

I don't entirely follow what the desired result is, and if you're getting an error, an empty page, a page with no errors but different than you want, etc...please clarify.

I can't see in Dashboard Menu list and If use direct path then I am getting following error

404 Not Found

Return to Splunk home page

Splunk cannot find the "simple" view.

You are using, which is connected to splunkd @123586 at on Tue Jul 17 10:34:20 2012.

I can see my all other panel - If I convert any other panel in form view it'll also disappear even after changing the permission

I am following this url to create form

2 Answers:

You don't have a token defined for your radio input. You need that, otherwise Splunk will consider the XML invalid and therefore throw an error.

Dashboards do not go in the nav subdirectory. Instead of nav


use views
