How can users view their saved searches in Splunk for BlueCoat?

Explorer

Currently when a user saves a search in the Splunk for BlueCoat app there is no way to access that saved search again. If I look in the users savedsearches.conf file for the Splunk for BlueCoat application it is being saved properly.

What would need to be modified to allow users access to their saved searches from Splunk for BlueCoat?

Currently running Splunk 4.0.11

Not sure how the BlueCoat app is setup, but from working with other apps I have learned to give my searches a common name for example: audit_failed_logins, audit_logins, audit_514udp.

Then under manager - Navigation menus - select the app you want to modify and select default.

In there I have a section:

  <collection label="Searches">

  <saved source="unclassified" match="audit" view="flashtimeline"/>
  </collection>

  <collection label="Unclassified">
    <view source="unclassified" />
   </collection>

The first part takes any search with the name audit and place it there and the second is to have any search that does not meet a classification and place it here.

You can always look how they setup the the search app navigation menu default xml page.

Travis.
