Error while deleting an alert




I was trying to delete an alert created by a user but splunk gives an error saying Could not find object id=abc


Are you sure you want to delete ab+c?


Actually,  user created 2 alerts with name abc and other with name ab+c (They just added this + symbol extra and rest of the things were all same)

Now if we try to delete ab+c alert splunk gives error mentioned above. Could anyone tell me why is this hapening and how can I delete the alert?

Also, you can reload only savedsearches.conf, without restarting Splunk with this:
