According to the splunk documentation for navigation (http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.1/AdvancedDev/BuildNavigation#Build_the_navigation_X... ) the default.xml file supports "view" attribute for "saved" tag. This should make the saved search open in a different view. I tried using it, but I can't seem to make it work (check the new view):
<saved source="unclassified" match="General" view="newview" />
<view source="unclassified" match="General"/>
Am i missing something?
Here is the mistake that you make:
The first option taht i propose to you is: If you want to use the option match in the tags saved and/or view, his value most be equal to one name of your saved searches that exists.
The second option is very easy: Just remove this match="General" in those tags.
