Splunk apps best practices - how to organize user search environment ?

Hi,

in my organization we have full automated Splunk Enterprise environment. Automated except one thing - apps in search head.
I would like to kindly ask You for some advice's, how to organize Search Head environment for multiple users.

In our environment we have 50% Splunk advanced users (apps developers) and 50% dashboard readers.
At the moment everyone using Search App as default one - each user storing there all searches. How to backup each user environment ? On many YouTube Splunk movies I saw that many people creating Splunk App and storing there all informations. Then app is located in HOME_SPLUNK/etc/apps/user-appname and could be easily managed by system administrator (tar,backup,restore). The problem is that only admin can create apps.

Is there any way to store users search environments in some containers/folders which administrator can easily manipulate.

I would like to store Splunk Apps in git repo and user search enviornments somewhere in backup. So if i will do search head deployment, my script will install list of current apps and restore last backup of user searches.

How to manage it in the best way ? I will appreciate it any support.

Thanks in advance
