How can I increase the disk usage quota for one user?

Ultra Champion

One particular user keeps getting the following message -

Your search has been queued: The maximum disk usage quota for this user has been reached.

How can I increase it for him?

this settings controls it on a role level basis: authorize.conf
links:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.2/Security/Addandeditroleswithauthorizeconf

srchDiskQuota = <number>
* Maximum amount of disk space (MB) that can be used by search jobs of a
  user that belongs to this role
* In search head clustering environments, this setting takes effect on a per-member basis.
  There is no cluster-wide accounting.
* The dispatch manager checks the quota at the dispatch time of a search
  and additionally the search process will check at intervals that are defined
  in the 'disk_usage_update_period' setting in limits.conf as long as the
  search is active.
* The quota can be exceeded at times, since the search process does not check
  the quota constantly.
* Exceeding this quota causes the search to be auto-finalized immediately,
  even if there are results that have not yet been returned.
* Defaults to '100', for 100 MB.
