Where is URL for a Knowledge Objects search within settings?

I am looking to define globally all of the 'knowledge objects' within a search head. Where is the URL found within Settings? Or is there a different search that would provide the URL?

I want to implement the following search, but need the URL and have not found it as of yet.

| rest <URL goes here> 
splunk_server=local count=0
| rename eai:* as *, acl.* as *
| eval updated=strptime(updated,"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%Z"), updated=if(isnull(updated),"Never",strftime(updated,"%d %b %Y"))
| sort type | stats list(title) as title, list(type) as type, list(orphaned) as orphaned, list(sharing) as sharing, list(owner) as owner, list(updated) as updated by app

Hi @ThatGuyPSH ,

 

Going by the REST API reference: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.6/RESTREF/RESTprolog#Using_the_REST_API_reference

I don't think there is a single REST endpoint hat meets your requirements. What you could do is to create some saved searches that write the different types of knowledge objects to a summary index then use that summary index to search the current list of KOs and also see how they have changed over time. 

For example have a saved search that writes all event types to the index via use of this REST endpoint: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.6/RESTREF/RESTknowledge#saved.2Feventtypes

FYI - by default | rest <URI> goes to every server in the deployment so you will most likely want to do some sort of dedup with the results 

Thanks,

Jamie
