How do I close 'My Investigations' after I am done with notable events?

I can see where we can create 'New Investigations', track or manage current investigations, delete or edit or remove existing investigations, but nothing to close the investigation. When you actually go into one of your investigations there is additionally a button to 'Create New Entry' that drops down to create a 'Note' or view 'Action History' (all cool features btw), but nothing to say ok "this event or this investigation is resolved or closed".

Splunk Version 6.4.1.2
App: ES Version 4.2.0

Thanks!

Hello @eliyyah!

There is currently no way to close an investigation. The best workarounds I've found are to change the title to include the word "closed" and to add a note saying "this investigation is complete".

Thanks,
Sarah
