Advanced XML Dashboard Email Settings

Champion

Hi all,

Is there any way to see/modify the email setting for an advanced dashboard in 6.0. We're trying to troubleshoot an issue that we think is related to a dashboard that was built in 5.0 with advanced xml and scheduled to send a pdf on schedule. In 6.0, we don't can't see those email settings on the dashboard, but it still does send the pdf on its schedule.

We'd like to find out who that dashboard is getting emailed to and possibly modify the target list. Is there anyway we can find that info on the server?

Thanks!

It is most likely in a "savedsearches.conf" file somewhere. In /opt/splunk/etc, (on unix) you can do this command : find . -name "savedsearches.conf" | xargs grep NAMEOFDASHBOARD. That can tell you the location of the files with settings for that dashboard. Most likely, it will be in a users folder somewhere. The parameter is "action.email.to", you can also search with "action.email.pdfview = VIEWNAME".

Thanks! I haven't found the search I'm looking for yet, but tbh, I'm not 100% sure which search I'm looking for - still need to get some info from the user.

But I did find a bunch of savedsearches.conf files and looks like that's where the info will be.
