Hi,

From the [post][1] , I learned that we can use following to refresh savedsearches.conf.

splunk _internal call /servicesNS/admin/search/admin/savedsearch/_reload -auth username

My doubt here is that will it refresh savedsearches.conf for just for
1. user=admin and app=search OR
2. user=all and app=search OR
3. user=all and app=all

Hi somesoni2,

just today I saw your question and did read some docs only minutes before, so here is the answer:

When you're using the Splunk REST API for namespace (/servicesNS/*) endpoints, you must ensure that you specify the correct user/app context for the endpoint:

https://<Splunk server>:<management port>/servicesNS/<user>/<app>/*

For shared application resources, specify nobody for <user>.
To specify all users or all apps, use the wildcard, '-'. For example: .../servicesNS/-/-/saved/searches. When using a wildcard for all users, this includes shared application resources accessible by all users.

So, in your example and based on the docs, you are reloading for user=admin and app=search.

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
