Create forms in Splunk Light
A form is a dashboard that provides user inputs to the search. User inputs include components such as a list, a button, or a text box. A form has all the properties and behaviors of a dashboard.
The image shows a dropdown box, multiselect, and checkbox inputs added to a dashboard panel to make a form.

- Select Edit.
- From the Add Input menu, select one or more inputs.
- For each input that you add, edit the input behavior.
- Click the pencil icon to open the edit window.
