For some power users, we need them to be able to get to Advanced Edit on report.
They need to be able to change dispatch.ttl value, for example.
If they navigate to Settings -> Searches, Reports, and Alerts -> "Their report" and click on Edit - they don't see "Advanced Edit".
What Capability is required to be added to non-admin user in order to have access to "Advance Edit"?
I appreciate your advice.
I believe the Advanced Edit ability is controlled from the
schedule_search role capability. So if you have a non-admin role created for these users who you need to have Advanced Edit capability, enable
schedule_search role capability for that role. This is a native capability for power users.
Edit a report, Use the Advanced Edit page to update a report configuration section in Create and edit reports
@13tsavage, thank you! We found this requirement as well here
The strange thing is the user is mapped to the role that has this capability "schedule_search" already.
@13tsavage just a small update.
When I posted the question we were running Splunk version 7.0.5 and apparently the required capability for Advanced Edit for v. 7.0.5 is "adminallobjects".
We recently upgraded to 7.2.9 and the required capability for Advanced Edit for 7.2.9 is "schedule_search" as expected.

Splunk Support engineer helped us to figure it out.

The following file has the current capability:
