Creating a search app for users in a sandbox environment, how do I remove their ability to save or schedule searches?


I'd like to create a search app for users in a sandbox environment, where users are able to run basic ad-hoc searches, create dashboards, etc. However, I'd like to remove the ability for users to save or schedule searches, by either disabling the UI button or when "save" button is clicked to have it redirect to a doc page.

Attempted to disable scheduled search, but this gives web errors.

It looks like the following on the SH server -

schedule search

You can just remove the schedule_search capability capability from the user's roles on that box.

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)
