How to set 'This App's' as the default view instead of 'All' on Report/Alert/Dashboard screens?


There seems to be a 'soft' way to set this per user, in that whatever a user last clicks on - either All, Yours or This App's - will become the default for THAT user, but is there any way to see This App's as the default sorting view on the Alert, Report and Dashboard screens for ALL users when they first navigate to that page?

I know this is an old question, but it was ranked on search engines. Here is my solution.

When you do that change manually as a user, in the report tab of search for example, then splunk modify
users/YOURUSERNAME/search/local/ui-prefs.conf by adding :

display.prefs.aclFilter = app

Have a look to the upper global default file : etc/system/default/ui-prefs.conf
and its documentation here : https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.3/Admin/Ui-prefsconf

display.prefs.aclFilter = [none|owner|app]
none = All  /   owner = Yours  /  app = This App's  

Now if your goal is it set that setting as default, globally and for everyone, you can do :
create a file etc/system/local/ui-prefs.conf and put :

display.prefs.aclFilter = app

Then reload the splunk or refresh it with https://YOURSERVER/en-GB/debug/refresh

Its seems to work as intended.

Can you do this from SplunkWeb?
The homies I am workin for went with SplunkCloud and no SSH access.

I can put in a ticket, yadda yadda yadda - but asking if its possible.
Seems the default setting should be "This apps" unless you are looking at "All configurations" page.

Thanks in advance,
