Scenario on a SHC, Splunk 184.108.40.206
you can try what Ismo said about creating the same user(exact user id that existed) locally on splunk. I have done that before same issue as you described and then it let le me reassign object to other user.
Hi. Thanks for the responses.
So as an experiment with my two users.. I never removed the first user. I login locally and that user does not see their knowledge object (extract) BUT it is there on the local disk. So the meta data is gone I guess.
We had this happen on a SHC so I repo'd on a standalone head. I can totally reproduce this.
