Searched for answers, but couldn't figure it out.
The closest answer was:
how-to-change-sharing-and-permissions-for-a-lookup

I am using Splunk version 6

Any help in this matter is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Got the answer finally :
You can update the permission of tags through REST API having a POST request at the following url and parameters:

https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/ks/search/saved/fvtags/tag_name/field%3Dvalue/acl -d owner="ks" -d sharing="app" -d perms.read="*" -d perms.write="*"

tried most of them ..didn't get any kind of success. In to documentation of ACL it is written many APi are supported but not all i suppose .So in that case can i change the permissions of tags ?
There is no sure answer for that anywhere , just examples .

Did you replace the '{tag_name}' with your tag name that you created?
