When I send out a bulletin message, it stays under "Messages" and stays sent out to users until I click the X on my own message notification. I click the X on my own message notification because it's annoying, just a notification, and I was the one to send the message so I obviously don't need a notification for it, lol?
My question is. Why. It's a completely unexpected functionality for the end user; apparently none of my users have ever seen any of my messages because I assumed no developer ever would make clearing the notification for your OWN message also delete the entire message distribution?? Isn't that why you have the "Messages" interface... to, you know, manage messages?
Because these are bulletin style messages, found in a single notification location (kvstore). Per-user preferences aren't stored, possibly due to the overhead....would be up to splunk to explain the philosophy of that.
