Just adding the below stanza wuld be sufficient to disable a saved search in default/savedsearches.conf

disabled = 1

How can I disable or enable a saved search in splunk from config side.

Is there any particullar location in savedsearches.conf I should be using that disabled stanza or I can use it anywhere under the saved search?

By default if I don't provide the disabled stanza what would be the default value that saved search has?

"disabled" is an attribute not a stanza. To disable a saved search you need to add "disabled = 1" in th esaved search stanza in savedsearches.conf. By default disabled is 0. This setting actually used to to prevent a scheduled search from running. If your saved search is not scheduled then you don't need to add this attribute.

[saved_search_name]
disabled = 1

Thank you for the clarification @manjunathmeti.

If I have a attribute setup in the beginning of the savedsearches.conf as follows

[default] 

disabled                = 1

Does that mean all the saved searches specified in that .conf files are disabled by default?
