user-prefs.conf - More Undocumented Settings

Hi all,

Would anyone be able to elaborate on what these settings mean in user-prefs.conf

[general]
render_version_messages =
checked_new_maintenance_version =
checked_new_version =
new_maintenance_version =
new_version =

They are not documented in the online Splunk Docs: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/User-prefsconf

And they're not in the spec file in: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/README/

I'd would be good to know if setting:

[general]
render_version_messages = 0

Would disable the display of the 'New version available' in the Messages drop-down:

alt text

But in general, it would be good to have these settings documented. 😉
