Can't set report transform as global to all apps

Path Finder

I have a set of report transforms in an application that I am trying to make global so that fields are extracted when inside the context of the application which defines them and any other application. Via the GUI selecting the "All apps" radio button appears to save correctly but going back into the permissions page shows the transform is still permissioned for "This app only". Any ideas what is going on here and/or another way I can set up transforms that will work across all apps?

I'm running into the same thing with "Global" inline fields. Anyone?

I figured out what was causing my issue. While I would create the extraction in an application and set it to all applications & give read only to everyone; the user also needs to have at least read only access to the application that the extraction is in.

So I usually create all global objects in the Search application because Splunk 4.1.6 beta has a lot of references to this application so I've had nothing but issues with disabling this app anyway. Then I give all roles at least read only access to the search application.

Another option is to add these to the system app.

While I am not sure if this is the correct way to accomplish this, or the most efficent, I found adding the following into metatdata/local.meta seems to do what I want.

[lookups]
export = system

[tags]
export = system

[props]
export = system

[transforms]
export = system

You can create the settings on the CLI and it will, by default, make the permission Global for that setting/setup. To change the permission on the GUI, you will either have to login as Admin or as the owner of the transform config.

Even configuring the transform and REPORT entry via the command line the fields are still only available in the app they are defined within. I am not sure what else to try at this point. I am unable make the extraction global for all applications which means users don't have access to the fields from the default search app as well as the app in which the fields are defined. Any other ideas?

To eliminate duplication, make sure you remove your current transform config on the GUI before you proceed with the CLI.

I've tried to change the permissions via the GUI as admin and I observed the same behavior. I will try via the config next.
