I now have some dashboards with good stuff on my dashboards. I want to move them into a custom app. I found the directory /opt/splunk/etc/apps/
My problem is now that it can't find some of the saved searches. What file do I move my saved searches into?
ok after some more digging I found the save searches are stored in:
You can go read the .xml dashboard to get the name of the search to move.
Yes, where they reside depends on what app context they are saved under. In this case, they were saved while in the default app "Searching & Reporting".
The scope of your saved searches is likely private or limited to the app(s) that they were created in. You can check by going to the manager, selecting "searches and reports", and clicking "Permissions" next to the saved searches in question. Change to "all apps" and set the appropriate role permissions. Your dashboard, in your new app, should then be able to see/use them.
