What replaced ui-prefs.conf

Hi All,

I found this https://community.splunk.com/t5/Dashboards-Visualizations/9-0-5-ui-prefs-conf-Why-my-default-search-... and in there is this.

SplunkWeb users may experience different behaviors for the UI preferences that used to persist and show latest preferences by updating ui-prefs.conf on the fly. Now after upgrade to 9.0.5+ or 9.1.0+ its behavior changed and no longer uses ui-prefs.conf to remember the user's UI level preferences, but instead, uses the url in the request or localStorage/Web Storage.

In Firefox I found this webappsstore.sqlite in my ../Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/e0fxb1hs.default-release which is similar to the above.  Is this where the ui-prefs.conf information was moved to?  I've had a request from a user that wants to set the 'Selected fields', but after the upgrade to 9.1.2 the changes would be stored in a sqlite DB.  Is this correct?  Is there any way of changing the 'Selected fields' other than using the backend?  Does this work for other apps beyond Search?

TIA,

Joe
