Example: Basic page using JavaScript for apps outside Splunk Web

This example shows how to use JavaScript to create a basic page with a chart and an events viewer that displays results from a search.

To use this code, save it as an HTML file in your own web site's directory. Be sure to update the splunkjs.config section for your own web app. The authenticate function redirects to a login_form.html example login page, which you can find here.
