Summary Index Backfill

Path Finder

Hi guys,

I am trying to backfill data into a summary index...

when i run the command using the py script i get an error saying:

*** For saved search 'fw_web_monthly_top_domains' ***
No scheduled times for your time range.

I have turned off the schedule for this search and tried playing around with the et and lt values with no effect...

any ideas?

Make sure to check the few things,

  1. Saved search should have a proper scheduling set-up, ie */5 * * * * or every X.
  2. Make sure that perticular saved search have proper authrization setup to share, default splunk seems to save it as private search so it can't be shared.
