Splunk Search

Cont=f not sticking in Saved Searches

After adding cont=f to my search I'm able to get the results I want but when I save the search and run it from the Saved Searches menu I find that the cont=f argument is absent from the search. Is there no way to save optional arguments in the search?

Syntax

Optional arguments

Syntax: cont=
Description: Specifies whether it's continuous or not.

Btw, upgrading to Splunk 5.0.1 resolves this issue for me.

When you execute the saved search, does the cont=f argument actually make it into the search or does it get truncated? Mine always truncates.

Sorry, I meant to say it saves but when you go to run the saved search from the Searches & Reports menu the argument is lost. Effectively, it doesn't stick.

I'm using 4.3.4, build 136012.

Hi! I just tried to reproduce this and the option saves with the search. Can you give more details about your environment--What version of Splunk are you using? What is your search?

Thank you.
