Why am I unable to schedule PDF delivery dashboard as non-admin user?

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to create a Scheduled PDF delivery of a dashboard and email that PDF to some internal users. I logged into Splunk as non-admin user, and then ran a query and saved as a dashboard panel. When I clicked on export option, I don't see "Schedule PDF delivery" option. But when I logged in as admin, I could see the option.

May I know what role or capabilities I should add to non-admin user to enable them to schedule the PDF delivery?

Can anyone please help me out here. Thanks in advance.

Does you non-admin user role has schedule_search capability ? If not then add this capability and try to schedule it again.

For any user having power account,enable "list_settings" capabilities to have this working

I am facing this issue on 7.2.3 , already assigned capabilities to role like schedule_search & export_results_is_visible, but still users with role is unable to see schedule pdf delivery button on dashboard. Please suggest

You need to also check if the dashboard has some time input .

Those will disable schedule pdf delivery.
Remove the time inputs from your dashboards, and you will see the schedule pdf delivery option.
