Indexes searched by CIM data models

Path Finder

Need clarification. In Manage Apps>Splunk_SA_CIM>CIM Setup, I have a list of all the data models and table with all the indexes I have available, with a checkbox next to each.

At the top it says: By default a datamodel will search across all indexes. Use the configuration panel below to constrain data model searches to specific indexes.

Does checking the checkbox next to an index exclude or include it?

It includes that index and excludes all others.

It's either "search all by default if none are selected" or "search only these ones that I have selected."

how can I "EXCLUDE" a single specific index? Only by checking the box for all the others?

Look at macros.conf in the CIM app. There is a macro for each datamodel, which defaults to some incantation of everything. You can set this to a search that excludes indexes, or includes, or whatever else you want to put in there that is a valid search.
