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.

  2. Select Edit.
  3. From the Add Input menu, select one or more inputs.
  4. For each input that you add, edit the input behavior.
  5. Click the pencil icon to open the edit window.
  6. Click Apply to save.
  7. (Optional) Drag the inputs to rearrange them.
  8. (Optional) Drag an input into a panel to specify an input applicable only to that panel.
