I have what I believed would be a simple question, but it's turning out to be more of a challenge than expected. This is on-prem Splunk Enterprise v22.214.171.124.
I have a view. I've scheduled PDF delivery of that view each morning. It works like a champ. However, the time presented in the resulting PDF is in UTC (which is what the sending Splunk search head runs under). OK, fine, so I added 'dispatchAs = owner' to the savedsearches.conf entry for the PDF delivery, and made sure that the view has 'owner = <my username>' in metadata/local.meta. I've read and re-read the spec for savedsearches.conf, and I believe I'm interpreting it correctly.
Incidentally, when loading the view in the Splunk web UI as the same username from above, I get the correct times (adjusted for the local time zone).
However, the PDF continues to arrive using UTC (we're in Central time zone and everything is 6 hours off in the PDF). I don't know what I'm missing, this really doesn't seem to be that hard. I *think* I'm reading the docs correctly.
I would very much appreciate any hints, pointers, or clue-by-fours. Thank you so much!
