Dashboards & Visualizations

Is it possible to disable another user's scheduled PDF report of a dashboard?

Hello all,

Is it possible to disable a scheduled PDF report of a dashboard made by another user?

I needed to change the Cron Expression of a scheduled PDF report, which was made by my colleague.
I set a new schedule PDF report for the same Dashboard because i can't edit the Cron Expression of my colleague's scheduled PDF report. Now we are receiving the same PDF report twice for the same dashboard at different times.
Unfortunately, I can't disable the scheduled PDF report of my colleague.

Thank you in advance.

Hi

Is the report global or private?

If the user is still around, they can either edit it themselves, or change the permissions for the report to give other users access to edit it:

  1. Click Settings and select Searches, reports and alerts.
  2. Find the report from the list (change owner filter to Any).
  3. Click on the 'Permissions' link under the Sharing column.
  4. Add the appropriate Roles to user groups.

Otherwise the splunk admin can do this. If the user is no longer available, deleting the user/role will remove the report (any any other objects) that are set to private.
