Splunk Alert -No Delete Option

There is no delete option under the edit menu for a splunk alert. The alert is disabled now but need to delete it. The option is not showing up for the alert owner and splunk admin. Are there any other ways to delete the alert ?

Hi Reach,
Try this,

Go toSettings -> Searches, Reports and Alerts. Find the scheduled search driving the alert in there, Click on edit and the delete/disable/modify the alert.

Let me know if this helps.

This is possible when the alert is not created via splunkweb but pushed from a deployer in an SH Cluster. You have to remove it from the deployer instance and push the bundle.
