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?
If you have access to the command line, edit the appropriate savedsearches.conf file and restart the SH.
Worked for me.
Also, you can reload only savedsearches.conf, without restarting Splunk with this:https://spliunk:8080/en-US/debug/refresh?entity=admin/savedsearch
