How do you set app permissions in a search head cluster? I don't see any permissions options in Manage Apps.

You should first do this on another instance and port your app into your deployer. I personally edit live on the deployer instance and rsync the app over to the deployment apps directory after making a significant change.

Be sure to also maintain the same roles on the search head cluster so everything fits into place. You can deploy authentication.conf and authorize.conf via shcluster app.

I've the same problem, is there a clear way to set search app permissions on all search head nodes?

I had to connect on a search head to update search app permissions in manage apps

I've also seen that local.meta has then been updated

Also what are the differences between default.meta and local.meta?

Many thanks!

I was kind of hoping to avoid that option but looks like I won't have a choice.

Are the settings part of local.meta?

Currently authentication, authorize, and other .confs are deployed to SHC members via an app.

Thanks,
