How to delete the report for a user whose account doesn't not exists anymore in splunk



we had a user who is no more with our company and we had deleted his account from splunk long back. Now I still see that I keep getting report from his ID. I tried to look for that report and could find it. Any idea how can I find this report and stopped it?

Hi raomu,

You can find out the name of a report in Savedsearches.conf in either /opt/splunk/etc/apps/search/local/Savedsearches.conf or /opt/splunk/etc/users/<user-name>/search/local/Savedsearches.conf.

as per your requirement you can delete it or mark it as disable disabled = 1 then restart the splunk server.
