Summary Indexing in Splunk Free

Path Finder

Having downgraded to Splunk Free, I can no longer see options when scheduling a search to configure summary indexing. That's despite which says that when switching to Splunk Free "Any alerts you have defined will no longer fire/function, although you can still schedule searches to run for dashboards and summary indexing purposes."

I've upgraded to Splunk 6 but I still can't see the summary indexing options.

Can anyone help please?

Hi, has this been solved?

I'm using Splunk 7.0.0 with a free license and I can't find the option to write to schedule a search nor the option for a summary indexing (It was there on the initial trial version of the Splunk enterprise license).
The docs still have the mentioned sentence:

I believe that is the line about report acceleration summarization in v6. Try looking up tscollect and try adapting your searches to use that at the end of the search command. You can see if you can use that to collect your own results into an index and they work with that summarized data.
