Reporting

GUI for "display.visualizations.show" for a scheduled PDF report

I've got a scheduled report that's meant to email a stats table in PDF form. By default, this PDF arrives as a large, empty line graph, followed by my desired stats table.

I'm able to fix this by setting display.visualizations.show = 0 in (user)/search/local/savedsearches.conf, but this seems to sometimes be overwritten by either the SH cluster or by changes to the report in the GUI. Is there a GUI option that accomplishes the same result as editing this config flag?

If you're using an SH cluster, changing this manually in savedsearches.conf on the filesystem in one indexer, it may well be overwritten again when making a change in the GUI on another indexer. This is because manual changes are not replicated in the SH cluster.

Instead make the change using the GUI: Settings -> make sure you have 'Show All Settings' turned on -> Searches, reports, and alerts -> find the line with your search -> Advanced edit. There you'll find display.visulaizations.show too and can change it.
