Find the steps below;

  • Go to $SPLUNK_HOME

  • Go to etc/system/default/data/ui/views/ and look for job_management.xml file (Do not make any changes to this file)

  • Go to etc/system/local/ directory

  • Make a directory called data inside local directory if not already existing

  • Make a directory called ui inside data directory

  • Make a directory called views inside ui directory

  • Now, copy the job_management.xml file inside views directory

The path of copied file should look like etc/system/local/data/ui/views/job_management.xml

  • Open job_management.xml in editor and go to line number: 41 where you will find something like this:

    Owner</param>

    owner_setting

    250

So, here change the count value of 250 to something (for eg. 500) that you want (this count is the limit for listing the users)

  • Save the changes and restart splunk
