How to limit some user roles from running scheduled searches on Splunk?

I'd like to know if the "schedule_search" capability is just to hide/disable create/update scheduled search options, or can it stop scheduled jobs run by user id without this capability.

If my aim is to limit some user roles from running scheduled searches on Splunk (that can be from some apps), what should I do?

In authorize.conf, set the following for the role(s) which you do NOT want to be able to schedule searches:

schedule_search = disabled

(requires save and restart)

Set the capabilities for roles in authorize.conf configuration file

[capability::schedule_search]
        * Required to schedule saved searches.

Note:

By default all the capabilities are disabled.

Roles inherit all capabilities from imported roles, and inherited capabilities cannot be disabled.
