Calculated Field Reassignment in the UI

Path Finder

Hi Splunk Community,

I noticed that in the "All configurations" menu in the Splunk UI (Settings > All configurations) that calculated fields are missing. We have been using the "All configurations" page to reassign objects once we have finished developing them for our various tenants but I haven't been able to figure out how to reassign calculated fields

We are on version 8.0.3 in case that's relevant.

Anyone have any idea how to reassign calculated fields in the UI?

This currently can't be done via the Splunk UI, however via REST this action can be done and scripted.

Following https://wiki.splunk.com/Community:How_to_change_owner_of_savedsearches_using_REST_API you can edit any knowledge object ownership and permissions.

Main difference for the item you are trying to update is changing the rest endpoint to /data/props/calcfields.
